UK Light Gauge Steel Frame market leaders, Sigmat, have announced the formation of a specialist Sustainability Committee to help the company meet their challenging environmental targets.
The committee, which is set to meet quarterly, is made up of a cross-section of Sigmat team members from Board level, to specialist design, construction, and engineering experts along with representation from a handful of environmentally aware apprentice-level staff.
Designed to work in tandem with the company’s internal Environmental Management System, the group has been tasked with ‘reducing the environmental impact of the business by creating leading-edge sustainable solutions for a new era of construction.’
The formation of the committee, which is part of Sigmat’s ‘Future Ready’ initiative, heralds the start of a raft of new R&D projects for the company, all of which are focussed around the development of innovative sustainable construction solutions.
Already widely recognised as one of the most sustainable construction methods on the planet, LGSF is now leading the green agenda in the MMC sector.
As part of their commitment to the environment, all of Sigmat’s structures are built using at least 42% recycled materials and as steel is one of the world’s most reusable materials, with an impressive 90% recovery credentials, their building process is now one of the most sustainable in the industry.
Speaking about the launch of their new committee, Sigmat’s CEO Mark Eburne commented: “For us, there is no distinction between being a successful business and an environmentally conscious corporate entity. Launching our own, in-house ESG committee is a clear demonstration of how central sustainability and social value are to our core values here at Sigmat.”
“Climate change poses a huge threat to future generations and everyone has a role in combatting its potentially devastating effects. We have set ourselves an ambitious target is to become 100% net carbon neutral by 2050 and our sustainability policy forms the core of this commitment.”
