What can we do as individuals on a day-to-day basis to alleviate the issues affecting our environment? It’s this question that led our company to start its journey to a more sustainable future. 2020/21 will see us making a concerted effort to become more environmentally friendly, and we are learning about ways in which CYBRID can help reduce its carbon footprint. We’re undertaking a range of small steps towards being a greener organisation, including switching to reusable coffee cups and water bottles, switching to uniforms made from recycled water bottles, and buying local.
At the end of 2019, we made the switch to use Henri-Lloyd as our uniform supplier. Why? Henri-Lloyd chairman Hans Eckerström is deeply passionate about his surroundings and determined that Henri-Lloyd play their part in sustainability. His philosophy is that we are the guests in this world, and we should treat our host with respect. This means that Henri-Lloyd is working with some seriously innovative fabrics, and as a result, our CYBRID-branded jackets are all made from 100 percent recycled polyester each using on average nearly 15 plastic (PET) bottles. So far, due to their innovative product development, Henri-Lloyd has removed the equivalent of 1.2M PET BOTTLES from the ocean!
Early in 2022, we partnered with Ecologi so we can play a part in helping offset the environmental impact our business has – each month we’ll be planting trees and making a small difference. Their expert climate committee helps ensure that all the money received via the platform goes as far as it possibly can to have the greatest possible climate impact.
