Empower now is our group wide sustainability strategy which aims to impact on five key areas: transforming our products, rethinking resources, empowering our people, partnering for success and laying foundations, underpinned by a robust governance structure.
We’re playing our part, in how we do business and the business we do
At Glen Dimplex, we are defining new ambitions that will push us to go further and faster, drive progress on social and environmental issues, and create a world where we can all thrive. Having a clear sustainability framework enables us to understand all our risks and opportunities, so we may create a real-world impact in the economy and for society.
On our sustainability journey, we will listen to our stakeholders, learn about new processes and technologies, partner with experts that will challenge us, empower our staff to go further, and set long-term goals that are embedded into our business plans.
Transforming Our Products
As people’s preferences move towards more transparent and sustainable products, our teams will continue to adapt and be at the forefront of innovation. We incorporate sustainability design principles into our decision-making for product development. We will constantly keep abreast of technology that will help us become more sustainable whilst investing in key innovations ourselves.
We recognise that a healthy environment is essential to the health of society. When you look around and see the challenges facing our planet, it is clear that we need to make changes in the way we do business. We are dedicated to taking urgent climate action across our entire business, focusing on travel and transport, management of our buildings and manufacturing process.
Empowering Our People
We aim to put our people at the heart of our business by nurturing an inclusive culture and investing in the quality of life of the communities we serve. People want to work for companies where they can really make a difference. The health and happiness of our people is directly linked to the pride they share in delivering their best to our customers, and the wider world.
Partnering for Success
We aim to embed sustainable action across our entire business and encourage everyone we work with to do the same. We recognise that the world is more connected than ever and we must collaborate to see success. We will engage with our stakeholders, industry, suppliers, and customers to ensure their needs, feedback, and ideas are incorporated into our decision making.
Our sustainability strategy
For Glen Dimplex Group, sustainability means effectively dealing with the different challenges, in each of the divisions, presented by the energy transition. What remains important is to start building sustainability momentum, including tangible plans and actions, that will help Glen Dimplex, and its network of communities, to prosper for future generations.
Our combined activities will fulfil our Purpose, demonstrate our climate credentials, and lay the foundations to become a leader in the transition to a sustainable world.
