Our Commitment to Change

Different businesses are approaching sustainability in different ways. At Richard Haworth we want to be recognised as a business that is Impact Conscious, but what does that mean?

At Richard Haworth our decisions are driven not only by thinking about the impact we have on the world around us, but more importantly we will positively ACT on that knowledge. Meaning people, planet and profit will drive our business forward in unison. 

 

 

 

Carbon Reduction Programme


Richard Haworth is committed to achieving zero emissions for Scope 1 and 2 by 2025. Due to current limitations in accessing accurate data from overseas partners (requested between April and September 2023), at this stage Scope 3 Net Zero commitment is aligned to the Paris Agreement of 2050.

In order to progress Scope 1 and 2 Net Zero, we have actioned the below:

  • Senior leadership policy commitment statement shared throughout the organisation. 

  • A ‘Sustainability Lead’ resource has been recognised within the internal leadership team.

  • Impact Champions have been appointed to manage current initiatives and continue to drive positive change across all departments.

  • Campaign led programme to enhance internal and external engagement; ‘We are Impact Mandatory employee ‘Environmental Awareness’ training, using change management techniques, has been delivered and is now incorporated within the new employee induction programme.

  • Quarterly internal update shared with all employees to ensure the Richard Haworth team are aware of initiatives and more importantly the reasons why initiatives are being implemented.
