Gripple has released its 2022 Sustainability Progress Report which outlines how it has achieved its first sustainability goal of being carbon neutral across its UK operations.
Gripple stated that it has managed to achieve emission reduction targets, supplemented with sustainable offsetting to deliver no net impact on the environment, as certified by Planet Mark and in accordance with PAS2060:2014.
As demonstrated in its 2022 Sustainability Progress Report, Gripple has reduced its electricity usage from the national grid in 2022, compared to the previous year by 4%, despite adding a new manufacturing site to its UK operations in 2022.
Tasha Lyth, sustainability manager at Gripple, said: “Carbon neutral for our UK operations is an important milestone on our journey to climate positivity and it also paves the way for our other manufacturing facilities across the world to do the same.
“We are extremely proud to have achieved this goal, through a focus on reducing carbon emissions, energy and water consumption, business travel and waste across all areas of our business.
“The release of our 2022 Sustainability Progress Report helps our customers, partners, and colleagues understand more about how we are growing our business in an inclusive, environmentally conscious way. We are committed to integrating cutting-edge technologies, forging strategic partnerships and engaging with stakeholders to ensure we leave an indelible positive impact on the planet.”
In addition to achieving carbon neutrality for its UK operations, Gripple has been awarded a Silver Medal as a recognition of its EcoVadis Sustainability Rating. The EcoVadis rating methodology measures the quality of a company’s sustainability management system.
