NG Bailey has launched its sixth annual sustainability report, which for the first time takes the form of a microsite.
Key sustainability-related achievements the company has accomplished include:
- A CO2 reduction to date of 27 per cent in its buildings.
- An overall reduction in RIDDOR accidents of 10 per cent year on year.
- The development of a revolutionary water-saving process that could prevent millions of litres being wasted each year.
- Donating and installing a 4 kW photovoltaic system to the Keighley Furniture Project a charity which provides basic furniture such as beds and tables to people living in poverty. The system will provide free electricity and Feed-in Tariff income to the charity for the next 25 years.
- The support of more than 70 staff fundraising events in the past year and the investment of more than £360,000 to community groups and charities over the past five years.
In 2010, NG Bailey put in place its Target2012 sustainability programme, and included an ambitious goal to cut carbon emissions by a fifth by 2012.
One of the main highlights of this year’s report is the achievement of exceeding this goal a year early.
The newly launched sustainability report highlights the steps that were taken to ensure that the company not only met its goal of reducing carbon across the group by 20 per cent, but did so ahead of time.
NG Bailey sustainability director Cal Bailey said: “Reaching our carbon reduction goal ahead of time is a fantastic achievement for NG Bailey and one that I am incredibly proud of.
“NG Bailey is committed to being a responsible business and it is our aim to continue to meet the challenges of sustainability”.
The report, which is aligned to the Global Reporting Initiative, also contains a handy report building tool, which enables readers to download either the whole report, or to personalise the report to include only those sections they want to know more about.
