How are we
The below graphics represent one or more of the United Nation’s 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs are “a to-do list for people and planet.” You can read more about all the SDGs here.
Here’s how we are planning to use these as guides for our own sustainable development.
We design out waste.
We’ll continue to divert 100% of our waste from landfills and reduce waste to energy. Our goal is to operate as a circular business by 2030 (more on this later).
We train and encourage our team to play their part.
We promise to work with our supply chain to understand the lifecycle of materials so that we can always choose the most sustainable options.
We keep track of our carbon footprint. Monitoring, recording, regularly reviewing, and reporting data on the amount of carbon dioxide we’re responsible for emitting into the Earth’s atmosphere can tell us where we’re making progress and which areas need to be improved. It also shows all our stakeholders that we’re genuinely ‘walking the talk’.
We promise to openly share our progress in sustainability on an annual basis from 2024.
We belong to industry networks that encourage honesty and transparency.
We’ll keep on investing in our community through charitable.
Our management team will continue contributing to our community through local outreach and mentoring work.
We’ll maintain our extensive program of opportunities for employment and skills development with local and nationwide universities, as well as continuously finding ways to invite people on our doorstep in Salford to offer event opportunities to our local community.
We promise to give all sta access to fully accredited carbon literacy training.
We’re measuring our energy consumption. Whether we’re working at the office or on-site at an event, we keep a record of our energy use so that we can get a clearer picture of where further reductions should be made.
We promise to reduce the amount of carbon we release into the atmosphere (AKA our carbon footprint) by 40% by 2030.
We commit to achieving net zero before 2050 or as soon as possible before then.
