Deceuninck has been shortlisted in the Sustainability Initiative of the Year category in the G22 Awards.
The nomination relates to the work the systems house is doing to lower the environmental impact of its operations, it’s development of ‘next-generation products’ and the work it is doing to encourage the industry to do the same.
In addition to the multi-million-pound investment it has made in recycling and compounding facilities, it also includes the commitment made to the corporate carbon reduction scheme, Science Based Targets (SBTi). This includes cutting the CO2 emissions from its own operations (Scope 1&2) by 60% by 2030 from a 2021 baseline.
It has also committed to cut emissions from within its supply chain (Scope 3 emissions) by 48% per tonne by 2030, as part of its wider journey to net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050.
MD Rob McGlennon said: “We know that our customers working in the commercial and specification sectors are already having to evidence the embodied carbon in the products that they supply but it’s no less important in retail as homeowners seek out sustainable products.
“Sustainability is fast becoming a prerequisite for growth and profitability. We’re committed to working with our customers and the wider industry to make sure that we are doing everything we can to lower greenhouse gas emissions and the impact of our operations on the environment.”
