Sustainability Role in overall company's strategic plansKorbond recognises the social and economic importance of protecting the environment. The company is wholly committed to the protection of the environment, including prevention of pollution, energy conservation, waste reduction and recycling where possible. In order to meet our commitment to the environment, we have established an Environmental Management System (EMS) which is accredited to ISO 14001:2015. This system provides a framework for measuring and continually improving performance.Sustainability initiativesOur packaging strategy is to ensure we challenge our current consumer packaging with the 4 R strategy: Remove: Sustainably sourced and where possible zero single use plastic. Reduce: Absolutely reduce wasteful and non-recyclable packaging. Reuse: Where appropriate consider consumers ability to re-use. Recycle: 100% recyclable. We have applied this to all Korbond - Care, Repair, Create product packaging and this has been rolling out in stores since launch April 2021. The 4 R strategy will be applied across all areas of the business from Design, produce, warehouse, distribution and consumer.Pledges for the yearIn the next year we will focus on not only landing our sustainable packaging strategy but also: • achieving targeted levels of emissions across scope 1, 2 & 3. • analysing our on-site pollution levels to seek areas for further improvement, such as LED lighting. • promoting environmental awareness in the business.Sustainable ProductsKorbond - Care, Repair, Create rangeAT THE FAIRPackagingOur packaging is made with recycled contentWe are in the process of making our packaging plastic freeWe are in the process of making our packaging compostableMaterialsWe have products made from recycled materialsWe have created products that provide an alternative to single use plasticWe have products made from sustainability sourced raw materialsEthical ConsiderationsWe have mapped our entire supply chainWe challenge our suppliers to report any ethical issues they identifyWe have an ethical policyEnviromental ImpactOur products are created to help consumers try and reduce their carbon footprintWe have a sustainability policyWe consider the environmental impact when creating our products
