Sustainability is at the forefront of what we do and central to how and what we supply.
We’re on a mission to minimise our impact on the environment by creating practical solutions that don’t compromise safety. Our goal is to reach Net Zero on our Scope 1 and 2 emissions by 2035. Our partnership with sustainability consultancy firm Amber will help us achieve this, as well as establish a framework for our Scope 3 emissions to make changes that directly benefit our customers and partners with their own sustainability goals.
We have a dedicated team of sustainability champions working across all our divisions. Our champions are part of a sustainability committee that meets regularly committed to keeping the business on track to meet our Net Zero targets.
By working with Amber we are able to clearly identify where we can make actionable changes to reduce our carbon emissions. We are committed to reducing emissions before considering offsetting. Our first steps have been to make changes to our offices and the way we make deliveries.
We understand that more customers are looking for a supplier partner that thinks way beyond price points. Our values reach across the whole chain, as we use our decades of experience and knowledge to help manufacturers and partners enhance their sustainability.
We’re dedicated to finding alternative, greener materials. Our extensive workwear range now includes 100% recycled (made with post-consumer polyester or recycled bottles), biodegradable, reusable, and vegan products.
We’re continually scanning the horizon to find and create more sustainable ways of working. Such as CtrlFlow ECA, a super concentrated chemical that reduces single-use plastic bottles and developed an environmentally non-polluting disinfectant.
Our journey towards sustainability is just that – a journey. We are accredited to ISO14001:2015, which sets objectives and targets for our business, as well as helping to enhance our environmental performance.
Director for Sustainability Gary Trudgett explains the real meaning behind the term 'sustainable workwear & PPE' by breaking through the common assumptions surrounding the topic.
We recognise that our actions as a supplier partner and how we support customers has a huge impact on sustainability. That's why we design our innovative services, products, and solutions around helping them reduce, reuse, and recycle.
