Acorn Sustainability Report

03 September 2018 | Updated 07 September 2018
 

Acorn Engineering Group has published its first free Sustainability Report which looks at the environmental and social performance of the business over calendar year 2017.

It highlights how the Company is meeting its targets of reducing the environmental impact its business has had on the environment.   Reduction in energy use and natural resources plus increased recycling and investigation of other areas has played a key role.

Reduction of Acorn’s carbon footprint and improved sustainability are high on the agenda.

Jonathan Coiley, Acorn’s Managing Director said: "Sustainability is at the forefront of everything we do in our business so I am really excited to see the launch of this report. It demonstrates a huge step towards greater transparency and engagement with our clients and reiterates our commitment towards sustainable development.”

The report is based around the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity.

In 2017 and through the Planet Mark Accreditation, Acorn has directly and measurably contributed to seven of these sustainable development goals.

Jonathan concluded: “We aim to improve on this year-on-year and be able to contribute to more of the global goals as our sustainability agenda continues to grow.”
