Sustainability and Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) are hot topics, and fast becoming the norm to enter into a bid or tender application.
More and more businesses are requesting your CSR policy and plans to align your operations with the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
A great way to showcase this, is through your supply chain. By ensuring you’re working with ethically responsible businesses, you can add their activities to your own CSR offer.
What are the UN SDG?
In 2015, world leaders agreed to 17 goals for a better world by 2030. These goals have the power to end poverty, fight inequality and stop climate change. Guided by the goals, it is now up to all of us, governments, businesses, civil society and the general public to work together to build a better future for everyone.
How can Green Parts help?
If your business is aligning your CSR with the SDG and their targets, these are the goals we can help you work towards.
Goal 8. Decent work & economic growth
Diversify, innovate and upgrade for economic productivity- By using our unique portal and app to sell or purchase second-hand quality OEM parts, you are helping to achieve higher levels of economic productivity (across the UK) through diversification, technology and innovation.
Improve resource efficiency in consumption and production – Joining the green parts revolution will help your business to contribute to global resource efficiency in consumption and production and endeavour to separate economic growth from environmental degradation.
Promote youth employment, education and training – We are proud to have our own Apprenticeship programme in-house, helping us to close the skills gap in our industry and to reduce the proportion of youth not in employment, education or training. By supporting us you are supporting this target.
Goal 9. Industry, innovation & infrastructure
Upgrade all industries and infrastructures for sustainability – By integrating our services into your infrastructure we can increase your resource-use efficiency and greater adoption of environmentally sound products and processes.
Goal 12. Responsible consumption & production
Substantially reduce waste generation – Using Green parts saves a new part from having to be manufactured. It is better than recycling, it is reducing demand for precious resources and giving new purpose to good parts that would otherwise be discarded!
Responsible management of chemicals and waste – As part of our environmental policy and standards, we achieve environmentally sound management of all chemicals and waste throughout a vehicles end of life. In accordance with agreed UK frameworks, we can help you significantly reduce waste to landfill.
Encourage companies to adopt sustainable practices and sustainability reporting – by using our sophisticated portal, you can track and measure your sustainable impact. This can then be passed on to your clients, encouraging them to adopt sustainable practices and to integrate sustainability information into their reporting cycle.
By working with The Green Parts Specialists, we can help you to align your corporate strategies with responsible governance, marrying and measure the need for effective commercial solutions with good business practice, robust environmental processes and supported social outcomes.
