Scott Bader has begun a strategic sustainability project, supported by 'The Natural Step', a specialist NGO which helps companies transform business activities to address ecological and societal factors on a sustainable basis. The campaign is part of the company's new 'making a positive difference' corporate theme and a presentation made at JEC in Paris.
The presentation made by the company during JEC World 2017 in Paris was on 'sustainable development in the composites industry'.
Scott Bader is now actively looking for partners on this transformational journey to achieve new, long term sustainability goals. The new sustainability initiative is led by Jean-Claude Pierre, group chief executive officer and the Scott Bader group executive. The aim is to fully combine the three company "pillars" of ecology, humanity and business, into an integrated and coherent approach to doing future business.
The Natural Step helps organisations and individuals understand and make meaningful progress to identify and implement new sustainability objectives. Over the last 25 years, The Natural Step has helped major global multinationals including Panasonic, Nike, Ikea, Philips, Rohm & Haas Dow and Akzo, define, plan and implement an effective sustainability journey.
 "Our intention is not to just tick a sustainability box. This new sustainability project aims to create a road map which will put Scott Bader into the top league of companies globally which have a clear ambition and long term strategic commitment to put care for the global ecology at the core of how it does business today and in the future, for long term sustainability," Pierre said to Scott Bader employees.
"The aim is for Scott Bader to actively lead and contribute towards building the type of responsible society that is aligned with the visionary corporate, social and environmental ideals in our commonwealth constitution, as laid down by the company's founder, Ernest Bader, over 60 years' ago. We want to continue using our chemistry expertise to innovate responsible solutions to market needs which use sustainable resources to minimise any environmental impact," he said.
The objective is to identify and then start implementing a number of defined actions by as soon as 2018. The company is already implementing a number of environmental projects to reduce energy consumption, such as replacing old technology lighting with LED lights in all Scott Bader facilities. A number of product and process related innovations have been developed by Scott Bader to improve the environmental impact and sustainability for producers of composite parts. These include the use of 100 per cent lead free pigment pastes worldwide, and a new 'zero styrene' gelcoat which was officially launched at JEC World 2017 in Paris. (SV)
