A family run business since 1984, Polyroof has been handed down through three generations of the Roberts family. We strongly believe in a sustainable future for all.
As a leader in the flat roofing industry, we are fully committed to making sustainability the centre of our business, embedded in our culture from top to bottom. We aim to lead the way on sustainability. We are really pleased to announce our new near-term science-based carbon reduction target (approved by the SBTi) and Net Zero plans.
The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has warned that global warming must not increase beyond 1.5°C if we are to avoid the most catastrophic effects of climate change. Limiting global warming to 1.5°C will likely require global emissions to peak before 2025, to reduce by 43% by 2030, and be Net Zero by 2050.
At Polyroof we have worked hard to produce an ambitious, realistic plan which aligns with these goals. The need for a realistic plan was key for us, and we have carefully considered how and when we will achieve the milestones on our journey. In particular, we recognise that achievement of Net Zero Scope 3 emissions will be very challenging, requiring widespread collaboration across our value chain and the global economy in general.
As part of our plan, we have already implemented a range of initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint, including investing in renewable energy projects and reducing waste in our manufacturing processes. We are constantly exploring new technologies and solutions to help us reduce our impact on the environment and achieve our goals.
We invite our partners and customers to join us on this journey and work together towards a more sustainable future. Keep an eye out on our sustainability page for more updates as we look forward to evolving and developing our plans over the coming years.
