Fostering a circular economy to advance people and the planet is central to our business. We actively support our clients – on a global scale – helping them ensure compliance and become more sustainable.
By openly acknowledging how our own operations affect the environment and society, we transparently measure and transform that impact into a positive force.
Why focus on sustainability?
Our planet is facing a climate emergency. This poses a threat to all species, including humanity. We need to take urgent action – transitioning to sustainable practices.
Our services are designed to help your business make powerful changes that minimize your environmental impact and enhance sustainability. This aligns with global efforts and brings huge advantages to your business.
Understanding your business’s environmental footprint is an important part of the process. It allows you to establish personalized carbon reduction goals, commit to net zero and ensure your organization and supply chain is future-ready.
Consumers are more conscious than ever about the environmental consequences of their product choices. Being a net zero business becomes a crucial differentiator. Those that lead the charge are more likely to achieve success in the future.
When making decisions, investors closely examine environmental policies, sustainability criteria and carbon reduction plans. Adopting these measures and hitting targets enhances the appeal of your business to potential investors.
Governments worldwide are intensifying their efforts on climate change. This means the regulatory landscape is constantly evolving. By setting science-based targets and commitments, your organization becomes resilient and future-proofed against emerging requirements.
We are convinced that we can only grow when all our stakeholders share the commitment to ensuring ethical business practices, upholding human rights and fair working conditions, and working towards achieving sustainability. In this line, our commitments and expectations from our supplier network are formalized in the RLG Supplier Policy Charter. Thank you to all our partners for your cooperation; we look forward to continuing working together and positively impacting our shared journey.
