We are committed to a vision which delivers carbon net zero by 2045 at the latest.

As part of our commitment to being a responsible and sustainable business, we are focused on the continuous development and improvement of our products and solutions using innovative technologies. We believe that we can align this activity over time to minimise the impact of our operations and our products on the environment.

As a manufacturer of high-tech respiratory and head protection equipment, it is our vision to be carbon net zero by 2045, and to leverage our research and development activity and technology solutions, customer relationships, operational footprint and our position in our communities to deliver this. We are working on a roadmap, which we expect to be able to publish in the coming 12 months.

We are also dedicated to enhancing our tracking and monitoring of key sustainability priorities. As environmental legislations are evolving globally, we ensure compliance through regular updates to our processes demonstrated by our continued membership of the Institute of Environmental Management and Assessment. Our U.K. operations are also certified to conform to ISO 14001:2015, which reinforces how we manage our environmental responsibilities. Three of our U.S. operations are due to be certified next year, two of which are scheduled for April 2022.

We will continue to enhance our tracking and monitoring of carbon dioxide equivalent and GHG emissions across all sites and aim to implement a strategy to set intermediate targets and report on some Scope 3 GHG emissions to help achieve our net zero target.
