Sustainability in the workplace – Small actions make a big difference 

Signbox Carbon Strategy and Sustainability Promise

If yours is an organisation that prides itself on ethical approaches and eco-friendly credentials, the chances are your sustainability policy will be as much a priority as your health and safety and online privacy commitments. But there’s more to sustainability and what it can do for your workplace than simply a ubiquitous title on your website footer.

Sustainability means going further to reduce your company’s impact on the planet – invariably it will mean a call to arms for your people and your processes, 

but it can also generate a great sense of wellbeing for your teams and visitors. Do it right and you’ll also have your brand’s sustainability resolve covered from the welcoming first impression to a lasting legacy of a genuinely meaningful workplace initiative.

We are committed to becoming Carbon Neutral by 2030. Find out more about our Carbon Neutral Journey below

The best place to start is with a powerful, sustainable architectural signage solution that welcomes with carbon-neutral wayfinding systems and guides and informs with natural, eco-friendly interior signs that will linger in the memory long after the visit.

Signbox has a range of great sustainable signage solutions that will transform the workplace – and the views of the people who use them. 

Signbox are committed to sustainability and reducing our environmental impact.  Our new product development process includes identifying and utilising the latest environmentally conscious materials.  Some of the latest material innovations we are working with include:-

GREENGUARD INKS – We use certified inks that have met some of the worlds most rigorous chemical emission standards

GREEN CAST ACRYLICS – 100% Recycled and 100% recyclable acrylics available in a wide range of colours with the same look and finish of standard acrylic

PVC FREE – OPTICALLY CLEAR FILM – We use a clear polyester film instead of a PVC for our glass manifestations. The clarity is superior, it has a longer life and is far more friendly to the environment

PASTE FOR WALL COVERINGS – Our sustainable paste is a water based adhesive used for the wallcoverings we supply and fit. 

BAMBOO SIGNAGE – The Signbox Hybrid range uses Moso Bamboo wood which can grow up to a meter in a single day, making it extremely environmentally friendly and sustainable

SOLAR POWERED SIGNAGE – We have a fantastic selection of solar powered wayfinding signage that anticipates the transition from day to night 

RICHLITE – A material made from using compressed sheets of resin-infused 100% recycled paper.  It’s Green Guard and WE certified

BAUX ACOUSTIC PANELS – An environmentally friendly, recyclable material made from wood wool, cement and water, offering outstanding acoustic qualities 

OUR CARBON NEUTRAL JOURNEY

At Signbox we have begun to make steps to evaluate our company’s carbon output and to understand where we need to make changes, what our carbon emission are and how we can offset them and in doing so become a more socially responsible and sustainable company.

This includes re-evaluating ourselves and our supply chain and taking a closer look at all the materials we are using.

The actions of responsible companies will play an increasingly important role in responding appropriately to the climate emergency. Drastic action is required to combat global warming so we must all be accountable for the part we play and try to implement sustainable alternatives wherever possible. 

CLIMATE CHANGE & GLOBAL WARMING

  • Global climate change has already had an extensive effect on our planet. Glaciers have shrunk, ice on rivers and lakes is breaking up earlier, plant and animal ranges have shifted, and trees are flowering sooner. Effects that scientists had predicted in the past would result from climate change are now occurring.
  • Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions which are created from burning fossil fuels, deforestation and agriculture are all responsible for global warming and climate change. 
  • As the concentration of GHGs in the atmosphere increase due to human-caused emissions, energy radiated from the surface becomes trapped in the atmosphere, unable to escape the planet. This energy returns to the surface, where it is reabsorbed.

ACT NOW, AT HOME

THE STEPS WE ARE TAKING

  • Net Carbon Neutral by 2030
  • Sustainable and ethical supply chain
  • Using our supply base to educate on new, sustainable and innovate materials to improve our clients offering. 

THE CONSTRUCTION INDUSTRY

The Construction Industry is responsible for 40% of global GHG emissions. The major contributors are materials used, heating, cooling and lightly of buildings and infrastructure.

Parts of the construction industry are already taking a lead in addressing these challenges. Globally, the World Green Building Council has issued a Net Zero Carbon Buildings Commitment by 2030 and advocates for all buildings in operation to be net zero in operation by 2050.

We all have an important part to play to ensure we live and run our businesses in a more environmentally conscious and sustainable way, and we need to start making these changes today!

The climate emergency demands action from all of us. We need to get to net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and everyone has a role to play,”

Niklas Hagelberg, UNEP’s Climate Change Coordinator.

Businesses need to be more than financial models in the modern era, they also need to inspire the stakeholders, innovate, drive cultures & aspire to a carbon neutral future.

Ensuring we play a key role in delivering on the UK commitment to reach “net-zero” carbon emissions as a nation by 2030 and setting a standard within our own industry.

 

   Signbox work closely with Forest Carbon to offset our carbon footprint. 

We are dedicated to reducing our carbon emissions and have built our business model canvas around achieving this goal. For more information about the activities we are undertaking get in touch to discuss.
