Solarglide commits to UNFCCC Race to Zero


Solarglide is using 100 per cent biodegradable packaging

Marine blind specialist Solarglide is continuing to commit to the United Nations climate scheme UNFCCC Race to Zero, which is a global campaign to support businesses, cities, regions and investors towards a zero-carbon climate.

Solarglide, which is based in Newcastle, UK, is currently working towards being a net-zero company by 2025 while the overall goal for all companies involved  in the UNFCC race is to halve greenhouse gases before 2030 and to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, making Solarglide ahead of its competitors.

The organisation’s sustainable commitments include 100 per cent biodegradable packaging; an ISO 14000:2015 Environmental Management accreditation; and a partnership with Newcastle University to review its products and to understand its carbon impact so it can share this data with clients.

“We are striving towards being net zero and have set ourselves an ambitious target of three years to do this,” said Paul Pringle, managing director of Solarglide. “We believe we have the capabilities and infrastructure to achieve this by making changes which include utilising electric vehicles and transitioning to biodegradable packaging.

“We are proud to be involved in the UNFCCC Race to Zero, as a prestigious global campaign it will give us a platform and the incentive to be a part of an environmental revolution.”
