Why Sustainability is Important to Us

At Staytite, we know that what we do is not going to save the planet. But what we do know is that by minimising our carbon footprint, improving our social and ethical practices, and working alongside our suppliers, customers and competitors, we can proudly say we are contributing to a better, and greener future. As a company with partnerships around the world, we know the importance of making a positive impact along the supply chain, and the consequent knock-on benefits this can have for not only our customers, but our community as well.

Aspiring to lead by example in our industry, we recognise the urgent need to address environmental challenges, reduce our carbon footprint, and promote sustainable practices throughout our operations. Here at Staytite, we firmly believe that sustainability is not just a responsibility, but a profound opportunity to make a positive impact on our planet and communities.

 

How We Integrate Sustainability into Every Aspect of Our Business

As an SME, we can harness the advantage of full team engagement in our sustainability initiatives. Monthly meetings with our Sustainability Committee tap into diverse colleague perspectives, offering invaluable insights. This empowers us to closely examine areas for improvement, from optimising delivery routes to reevaluating conventional processes. Our goal is to integrate sustainability into every facet of our business conduct, maintaining transparency as a core value. We're actively developing a sustainability report for a clear overview of our current status and aspirations.

Goals

2024 target chart

As part of our day to day operating as a company we want to achieve an increase of 50% in our recycling efforts, decrease company travel by 15% by consolidating site visits, reduce printing where possible by 25%, and switch to 100% sustainable packaging in 2024.

Staytite has also aligned targets and commitments with the UN Sustainable Development Goals, to highlight our unified commitment as a part of society. The goals which resonate the most with our employees and our business ethics are:

UN 03UN 08UN 09UN 11

UN 12UN 13UN 16UN 17

 

The Challenges We Face

As a distributor of thousands of different products, each requiring manufacturing in countries around the world, the biggest challenge we face is ensuring sustainability all the way along our supply chain. As a company we can only take responsibility for our own efforts, however through supplier surveys, as well as green supplier sourcing for our future business partners, we can help to understand who we want to work with and who will join us in promoting a greener future.

We also understand that importing certain products is a carbon heavy activity regarding scope 3 emissions; but through reducing our scopes 1 & 2 emissions, as well as streamlining our purchases, reviewing our suppliers and other carbon offsetting methods, we’re still very much committed to becoming carbon neutral by 2050.
