Companies can play a key role in accelerating the transition to a climate-neutral and more sustainable economy. To play this role, however, they need governance practices that ensure they understand the impact of their activities on the world around them, and take society and the environment into account when making business decisions.

  • Aim to become net zero by 2040

    We want to make a positive impact on the communities in which we operate and make a better and more sustainable future for all through initiatives aligned to the UN 2040 target.

  • Reduce our Co2e tonnes

    We are taking action to minimize our impact and explore innovations that have a positive impact on our customers and supplier carbon footprints. By 2028, we will have reduced our 2022 carbon emissions value of 1722 by a minimum of 10%.

  • Transition to green energy

    We know that the key to tackling the climate crisis is to end our reliance on fossil fuels. 100% of our electricity supply will be through a new or renewable carbon free service by 2025.

  • Eliminate waste

    We are committed to driving material and resource efficiency, aiming to reduce our plastic packaging and increase our recyclable office waste through our "Let's Be A Waste Free RB" initiative.

  • Ethically source our materials

    We are mindful of our impact and make responsible purchasing decisions by considering the entire lifecycle of products. We also ensure that our supply chains are free from any unacceptable labour practices.

  • Give back to our environment and communities

    We value improving our surroundings and strive to be good neighbours by supporting our local communities and contributing positively to society's progress. Our community engagement approach reflects this goal.
