Making a big difference
As a business we have empowered our greatest resource, our people, to think sustainability first, knowing that even the smallest of actions when combined can have a big impact.
The UK arm of our business moved to renewable electricity at the end of 2021. We have seen the benefits of this decision in this year’s figures. Renewable electricity made a 29% reduction in our carbon emissions in Scope 2. Our digital factory uses 100% renewable energy.
Our 2022 charity events raised an amazing £62,000! In 2021, we set out to raise £75,000 for 75 years in business. We are delighted to say we smashed this figure and our colleagues, friends and family raised an incredible £113,375.42. This was achieved from all manner of events and activities from head shaving, to daredevil rope walks, sky dives, Zoomba and even brewing of a charity beer in France. We look forward to continuing our fundraising in 2023.
Eco packaging, eco delivery
All our paint tins are completely recyclable once they have been cleaned. They are made from steel which is the most recycled material in the world.
100% of our cardboard packaging is made from recycled or managed sources. Each carton is made from a minimum 70% recycled card and 30% sustainably sourced pulp – so it is 100% Good.
Since our last report we have introduced recycled bags for use when dispatching our paint. These bags can also go in the plastic recycling.
Our commitment to improving the planet for ourselves and our children is demonstrable by the action that we have taken already. However, the majority of our remaining carbon footprint is down to the usage of gas in our ‘analogue’ factory to dry our inks and turn emissions into clean air.
