Right NOW is the time to start realising our carbon footprint and working towards reducing its impact on our fragile planet. As a business that operates in an industry considered to be unsustainable, our focus must be centered on minimising our environmental impact.
As a result, we have taken the step to join the SME Climate Hub. This is an initiative that aims to achieve set targets. These include:
1) Halving our greenhouse gases before 2030
2) Achieving net zero emissions before 2050
3) Disclosing our yearly progress to achieving these goals
The great news is that we are joined by governments, businesses, cities, regions, and universities across the globe in the United Nations mission to Race to Zero.
We operate a multi-vehicle fleet as well as running a singular warehouse. As renewable energy and eco-vehicles become more accessible, we will look to optimise our day-to-day procedures to offset our carbon.
As a first-tier distributor, we buy direct from the manufacturer. This reduces the carbon emissions in our supply chain because the number of parties involved is significantly reduced. We shall continually look to improve the sustainability of our supply chain and product range.
Additionally, getting involved in local environmental causes such as tree planting and recycling initiatives will help us in the efforts to achieve our goal of net zero by 2050.
Our planet needs us and this step is a huge commitment to helping create a healthier and more sustainable world. This goal is achievable and with the support and insight from organisations we can benefit and safeguard future generations from the effects of climate change.
