Environmental Statement

This policy applies to all activities undertaken by SDK Group Limited and impacts upon suppliers and customers.

Our Goal - Our Promise

As part of our dedication to environmental sustainability and our promise to combat climate change, SDK Group Limited commits to achieving net-zero carbon emissions over the lifespan of our company. Recognizing the urgency of addressing climate change, we aim to reduce our future carbon footprint and retrospectively offset all historical CO2 emissions since our company’s inception. Our approach includes a multi-faceted strategy to ensure we meet this ambitious goal:

Carbon Offset Initiatives

Investing in verified carbon offset projects, such as reforestation, renewable energy, and community-based sustainability projects, to neutralize our past and ongoing emissions. Our goal is to offset an equivalent amount of CO2 to what has been emitted by our operations since the company was founded, making us net-zero retrospectively and moving forward.

Ongoing Review and Adaptation

Continually reviewing our CO2 goals to adapt to new scientific insights and technological advancements. This includes regularly assessing the effectiveness of our chosen offset projects and making adjustments as necessary to maximize our positive environmental impact.

Staff Engagement and Training

We encourage the contribution of innovative ideas and sustainable practices, rewarding significant efforts towards energy efficiency and waste reduction. This collective approach empowers our employees to be ambassadors of sustainability, reinforcing our commitment to environmental stewardship within and beyond our operations.

Sustainable Sourcing

We prioritise sustainable sourcing by exclusively partnering with primary suppliers accredited under ISO 14001. This approach enhances our environmental performance, ensures compliance with legislation, and aligns with our sustainability goals through regular assessments and collaborative improvement initiatives with suppliers. Our dedication to sustainable supply chain management underscores our commitment to reducing our environmental footprint and promoting a more sustainable economy.

Waste Management and Reduction Strategy

We have enhanced its waste reduction strategy by integrating advanced software and equipment since 2020, achieving a 35% reduction in material waste. Through efficient job management and precision cutting, along with a robust recycling program and waste compaction, the company significantly minimizes its environmental footprint. These initiatives reflect our ongoing commitment to sustainability, marrying commercial success with proactive environmental stewardship.

Energy Efficiency Measures

We made significant strides in sustainability, transitioning to 100% renewable energy and implementing eco-friendly upgrades, including LED lighting and electric vehicles by 2022. Advanced energy management and staff engagement further optimize energy use and promote green practices.

By committing to net-zero emissions over the life of our company, including offsetting our historical carbon footprint, SDK Group Limited takes a significant step towards responsible environmental stewardship. We recognize this commitment as not just an obligation to our planet but as a strategic investment in our collective future, ensuring we contribute to a sustainable and resilient environment for generations to come.
