Today we're very excited to launch our Climate Positive Campaign. We recognise our responsibility to help protect the planet, for future generations and are fully committed to minimising our business's impact on the environment and support those working to improve global environmental sustainability.
To support this ambition, we are putting in place a number of environmentally positive initiatives that will help reduce the amount of raw materials we use, the energy we consume, and positively engage with our customers and suppliers.
The first item in our Climate Positive campaign is committing to plant a tree for every product that we sell from 1st January 2021.
To help with our initiatives and make the whole process fully transparent, we've teamed up with Ecologi. They are an environmental organisation that fund climate offset projects and tree planting around the world.
- We have a fantastic Ecologi Profile page for TMP that verifies the tonnes of carbon we have reduced and the number trees planted. We can even show how many trees relate to your projects if you ask us. If you'd like us to track your contribution please let the team know when you place an order.
- We're also building a Climate Positive section of our website. We will show exactly how many saplings planted each month, how that relates to the number of tonnes of CO2 they will remove each year and how that relates to our other climate positive actions.
We're not stopping there either, planting trees is just the start. We are moving our vehicle fleet to electric. We have already started this with 1/4 of our fleet being electric as of December 2020.
We are in the final stages of testing to allow us to use recycled material in all of our bollard products. Our bollards are already recyclable at the end of their life, but using recycled material in the manufacturing will help reduce our use of raw materials as well as reducing the amount of plastic that goes to landfill.
As we've said this is just the start, and there will be plenty more on our Climate Positive campaign over the next few weeks and months. Plus some fantastic ways you can join in with our efforts.
Together we will make the difference to be Climate Positive.
