SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT GOALS
At Traffi, we are driven by our core values. They are at the heart of everything that we do. We then looked outside our own business to see where else we could find guidance on how to help.
We looked closely at the United Nations 17 Goals for People and Planet and thought about how we were able to get involved. We felt confident that we were able to align ourselves most closely with 4 of the 17 goals.
We want to ensure that the production of our gloves does not have a destructive impact on the planet. Our Life Extending Technology (LXT) range of gloves is washable and reusable, meaning that less worn out and contaminated gloves are sent to landfill. In this way, we are helping to ensure that our gloves are a sustainable option in a world where disposable PPE is on the rise.
In 2019, levels of greenhouse gases rose to record levels. To protect our planet, we must do what we can to reduce the number of carbon emissions that are coming from the production of our gloves. In 2020, we achieved this by reaching carbon neutral status. This means that we have worked out our organisational carbon footprint and are able to compensate for the emissions that we produce.
Deforestation is a global problem. It poses a threat to around 1 million animal and plant species globally. To help in the fight against deforestation and effect that has on ecosystems, we have been working with our glove production partner to plant trees in Sri Lanka. We've lovingly planted, tagged and cared for around 113,000 trees over 620 acres of land.
We will only achieve if we work together as one world. At Traffi, one of our core values is to Make a Positive Impact on our customer, the environment and the communities in which we live. Everything that we've been working towards for the past five years on our sustainability journey has been to ensure that as a company, we are having a positive impact on the world in which we live.
