Parkside achieves sustainability milestone with SME Climate Hub pledge

Parkside has reaffirmed its commitment to sustainable operations following its successful pledge to the SME Climate Hub as part of the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign. In June, the award-winning flexible packaging manufacturer completed its first public report, which came with an official badge, after initially pledging to the scheme last year. Pledging to the SME Climate Hub commitment guarantees a business is actively working to reduce its environmental impact through targeted strategies to lower both direct and indirect greenhouse gas emissions up and down the value chain. In order to fulfill their pledge, businesses must take concrete steps to halve their emissions by 2030 and be Net Zero by 2050, in line with the UN’s recommended targets. "In order to publicly report Parkside’s emissions via the SME Climate Hub, a thorough analysis of the company’s daily operations, supply chains, and customer relationships is conducted. “Parkside has adapted its business operations to keep emissions to a minimum for example, holding virtual meetings where possible to reduce transport emissions, and strategically ordering materials to reduce the number of inbound deliveries it receives. “It also utilises waste materials for make-ready, reclaims the solvent it uses, and constantly innovates to provide new recyclable or compostable packaging solutions for its customers. “Sustainability is a process, not a destination, and so there is always more we can do,” added Sarah. “But this pledge proves we are prioritising sustainability and moving in the right direction. Parkside is proud to be a business set for the future.” https://bdaily.co.uk/articles/2023/07/10/parkside-achieves-sustainability-milestone-with-sme-climate-hub-pledge

      @edwin_wangombe businesses should be monitored on the operations that they use.

      Congratulations to Parkside on achieving this sustainability milestone! It is great to see them taking positive steps to reduce their carbon footprint and become a more environmentally responsible business. We hope this inspires other SMEs to follow in Parkside’s footsteps and make their contribution to the global fight to reduce climate change.
