More than just a commitment to environmental principles
Sustainable Development is increasingly becoming the business model for a changing world. What’s more, it is not just a passing trend for the PGS Group. We care about where, how and who we manufacture with.
We aim to manufacture as 'close to home' as possible. We love the fact that our materials are reused as much as possible and our final product is recycled in a form that we are ready to 'let go'. We also want to take responsibility for significantly reducing the footprint created by our own business processes.
Our Sustainable Development Goals
As a group with a global mindset, operating in a global industry, we use the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG) as a shared platform in order to ensure that our sustainability strategy is aligned with global efforts in this area. Although, as far as possible, we care about all of them, we have identified 4 key SDGs, in which we feel the PGS Group can have the greatest impact.
- Decent work and Economic Growth
- Responsible Consumption and Production
- Life on land
SDG 8 ensures the safety and health of society and employees
We have integrated caring for people into everything that we do. We are committed to upholding human rights and guaranteeing safe, healthy and respectful workplaces for our employees. We try to integrate social fairness into all our processes - from the employment of people with disabilities to the launch of new automation technologies and our aim of achieving a zero accident rate.
SDG 12 sustainable procurement and business ethics
Transparency in our supply chain is key for us when it comes to ensuring sustainability with regard to environmental and social factors. We use certified materials as a way of guaranteeing environmental standards and social fairness. We always keep up-to-date with new standards and carefully select the best materials for each of our products.
SDG 15 Life on land
We want to maximize the positive impact of our basic raw material - sustainable wood. In order to help preserve biodiversity and prevent deforestation. As an active partner of Reforestaction, we act by preserving and restoring forests in France and around the world.
SDG 17 Partnerships for the goals
We recognize that sustainable development is challenging and strive to continuously develop our practices in this area. We are also more and more aware that we cannot do this alone. For this reason, we are looking for strong partners such as certification bodies like PEFC and other inspiring partners such as ReforestAction. By doing so, we hope to make a real impact.
“We have placed Sustainable Development at the heart of our organization by defining a number of strategic priorities.”
