We have some super exciting environmental initiatives coming up in the New Year and we’d like to keep you up to date with what’s going on in and around our business so that you can join us on our journey.
To kick things off, we’d like to introduce you to Ann-Marie, our Sustainability Champion and leader on all things ‘green’ and ‘environmentally friendly’ throughout 2021.
Here’s what she had to say about this important role…
Why have TP assigned a Sustainability Champion?
We aim to be the leaders of change and encourage smarter sustainability within the industry. Sustainability has always been and will always be an important issue to the Three Point team. We’re continuously investigating and investing in new ways to improve the overall sustainability of our business and reduce our carbon footprint.
This is also a really important issue for our clients, so we want to help them to achieve their goals and create amazing retail display with sustainability in mind.
My role is to drive sustainable practices both internally and externally. That not only includes our internal processes, but also a lot of research to ensure we are recommending the most environmentally friendly materials and substrates to our clients and being constantly informed on new, emerging recycling capabilities within the industry.
Do you have a Sustainability team? If yes, who else is involved?
What are Three Point aiming for when it comes to Sustainability?
Overall, our aim as a business is to become carbon neutral. We’ve already started on this journey by…
- – Continually reviewing our internal efficiencies and implementing new ways of working within our office and manufacturing areas, such as minimising waste and switching to reduced energy innovations.
- – Offsetting our carbon emissions by planting trees and hedges in the UK to create new native woodlands to support biodiversity & wildlife. Woodlands play an important role in reducing flooding, keeping rivers clean and help us to breathe more easily whilst being vital for wildlife and creatures.
We’re looking forward to introducing some new sustainability initiatives in 2021 to continue our journey.
What do you hope to deliver in 2021?
In 2021 we aim to successfully educate our clients on sustainable alternatives to otherwise traditional display methods, allowing them to make informed decisions. This will be based on a complete life-cycle assessment taking into account material content, expected lifespan and the recycling availability at end-of-life location.
