United Brands Group strives to have a 100% sustainable office environment and our internal footprint shall be 100% green by 2026. In addition, we only work with suppliers who are continuously improving sustainable ways to work, for example by using green trucks, green electricity in their factories or offices, and minimal CO2 emissions
Our footprint reflects the 3 levels of emissions of the organization and steps to make housing, HR, purchasing, logistics, communication, and production more sustainable. In our Environmental Improvement Plan, we discuss several goals to make UBG more sustainable. This plan will be uploaded to the website as soon as it is completed. Below the footprint and chart, we state important points that already ensure a more environmental-friendly UBG.
3 levels of emissions
Level 1 is the direct emission of our organization, which means emissions caused by our own sources such as company cars or production-related activities.
Level 2 reflects indirect emissions, which means emissions caused by generating self-purchased or consumed electricity or heat.
Level 3 includes the emission caused by activities of other organizations such as investments. Or think of the emission caused by the farmers who harvest our veggies and fruit we eat during lunch, or the screws of the laptops, printers, or cellphones we use.
