The WWF has published a ‘Timber Scorecard’ report assessing over 100 companies’ performance in terms of sourcing sustainable timber and timber products. Pearson was given a ranking of ‘two trees’ out of a possible three in the scorecard. This indicates Pearson has made a very good start on the sustainability journey through the commitments the company has made to source FSC, PEFC and recycled products as well as establishing control mechanisms over the way it uses timber products. Peter Hughes, Sustainability Director at Pearson said: “At Pearson, our commercial success goes hand in hand with a focus on operating sustainably and responsibly. This is the right thing to do and positions us strongly to succeed in a fast-changing global environment. “We have been members of WWF’s Global Forest and Trade Network for over a decade and understand the importance of sustainable sourcing and efficient usage of paper. We’re pleased with the WWF scorecard rating, but will continually look at ways of improving our impact on the environment.”
As the COP26 summit in Glasgow reached its conclusion, our steadfast commitment towards ensuring sustainability remains at the forefront of our business growth here at HH Global has only strengthened.
We are proud to have recently been featured in Deloittes’ Goal 13 Impact Platform Report; a summary of interviews from executive voices and key stakeholders in the market. Having interviewed over 250 companies to date, in sectors from finance to procurement, Deloitte has created a comprehensive summary of how cross-sector collaboration can be harnessed to create the most impactful climate change initiatives.
The Goal 13 Impact Platform Report was used throughout the COP26 summit to inform and empower important conversations around businesses’ climate journeys; examining what it takes to make climate programmes successful. It was mentioned at numerous high-profile COP26 events including the CBI business dinner and Hustings.
Chief Sustainability & Innovation Officer at HH Global, Kevin Dunckley said, “This report looks at how businesses across the board are transitioning to net- zero carbon emissions, to protect our planet for future generations. We are therefore thrilled to have featured alongside some of our biggest clients, coming together under one common sustainability goal, and further distinguishing HH Global as the market leader.”
