Corporate Responsibility

ETL’s corporate and social responsibility is fundamental to the way that it operates. The company is continuously striving to improve its impact on employees, the wider community, and the environment, whilst upholding the highest standards of governance. ETL’s ESG Policy and Framework is available below and sets out how we are achieving this in line with the three key goals of our business strategy:

Operational Excellence - designing and manufacturing high quality products in the most efficient and sustainable way.

Sustainable Business Growth - engaging with customer and suppliers to encourage socially and environmentally responsible business ethics amidst the growing market.

People and Culture - equipping our employees to fulfil their potential in a safe, positive and inspiring workplace.

As part of a network of other organisations, people, and the environment, ETL’s relationship with its suppliers and third parties is critical for ethical and sustainable business growth. ETL’s Supplier Code of Conduct compliments ETL’s ESG Policy and Framework by encouraging socially and environmentally responsible business ethics across this network.

Reducing the energy, carbon, water and waste impact of our business is of critical importance to ETL. We are increasingly integrating environmental responsibility into our activities, from daily operations and processes through to long term business planning and investment.

We aim to reduce our environmental impact across the full life cycle of our products and services by engagement with suppliers; to propagate environmental responsibility throughout our supply chain.

Commitment to Net Zero:
ETL’s Carbon Reduction Roadmap aims to reduce emissions year-on-year in line with NET Zero reduction targets. Our roadmap (February 2024 release) states a Net Zero target date of 2050 and target of a 70% reduction in CO2e by 2033 (from baseline position), with incremental targets each year and associated actions. This target has been set using the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) guidance. Key measures to achieve this include monitoring and reporting on energy use, identifying where savings can be made, increasing the overall efficiency of our operations and use of renewable energy.
In April 2023, we installed an additional 141.96 kWp of solar PV at our Hereford site, in addition to the existing 72.64 kWp already in place. Our solar PV is expected to generate over 190,000 kWh per annum.
