REDUCE. REUSE. RECYCLE.

Over the past few years, we have developed our knowledge and skillset to enable us to evaluate areas within our business which can be improved, resulting in a lesser impact on the environment. Although we have already made some positive steps towards being a greener business, we are still at the beginning of our journey, a journey which will continue to adapt and evolve as the world around us does so. As climate change impacts the world around us, as a market leading brand we want to be part of the solution, not the problem. Our mission is to make all areas within the business as sustainable as possible as the only future is a sustainable future. To help achieve this, we have partnered up with both Textiles 2030 and Positive Planet.


We believe in the 3 R's. Reduce. Reuse. Recycle

OUR PLANET

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDG's) also known as Global Goals, are a set of 17 integrated and interrelated goals set out by The United Nations to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that humanity enjoys peace and prosperity by 2030. 

Our ambition as a business is to implement strategies to align to as many of the SDG's as we can.

RESPONSIBLE CONSUMPTION & PRODUCTION

Our planet has provided us with an abundance of natural resources. Sustainable consumption and production (SDG 12) is about doing more and better with less. SDG 12 is meant to ensure good use of resources, improving energy efficiency, sustainable infrastructure, and providing access to basic services and ensuring a better quality life for all. Lets take a look at what we do at PULSAR® to align with this.

Positive Planet

LOW ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT, HIGH PERFORMANCE

FSC® CERTIFIED PAPER

FSC® CERTIFIED PAPER

The paper and publishing industries rely on thriving forests to meet demand; global consumption of paper continues to grow. Although paper can be both biodegradable and easily recyclable, it can also be the product of deforestation or poor forestry practices if not sourced sustainably. 

Through responsible management of forests, and verifying the use of recycled materials, the FSC® system can help secure a long-term, source of paper. FSC® can enable the paper and printing sectors to demonstrate their commitment to responsible forestry. 

All PULSAR® swing tickets are made with FSC® certified paper.

OUR CARBON FOOTPRINT

Forest

CARBON NEUTRAL BUSINESS

We are delighted to announce that we now are a Carbon Neutral Business certified by Positive Planet.

PULSAR® has measured its Scope 1, 2 & 3 greenhouse gas emissions for 01/01/2022-31/12/2022 using the GHG Protocol, and offset 100% of total annual emissions to become Carbon Neutral.

By having our emissions calculated by Positive Planet, a summary of our carbon footprint gave us up-to-date insights on our business emissions and helped us to understand where to focus our actions to reduce our climate impact. By working with Positive Planet we have outlined the step's we'll be taking to minimise our carbon footprint in our first net zero report.


 

Positive Planet

ELECTRIC CARS

At PULSAR®, we now have 6 FULLY electric company cars! 

Electric cars produce less life cycle emissions than traditional cars and they are more energy efficient than internal combustion engine cars. Switching our external sales teams cars to Electric cars has helped protect our environment and helped reduce our carbon emissions.

At our head office we have installed electric chargers for these vehicles using 100% renewable energy.

SOLAR PANELS

Based at our head office we have installed 60 solar panels that produce up to 15 Kilowatts which powers the property as well as any company electric cars when connected.

Having solar panels, provides clean, renewable energy, giving us control over our electricity and also causes no greenhouse gases to be emitted after installation. All these steps contribute to us helping our environment and us becoming an even greener business.

TRUSTED PARTNERS

Textiles

By 2030, we will reduce our combined greenhouse gas emissions in line with a 1.5o C UN trajectory to reduce climate change reducing carbon impact by 50%, reducing the water footprint of products sold by 30% and following a roadmap to a more circular fashion future. As a Partner Signatory, we will pursue a joint circularity leadership agenda, following a circularity roadmap and collaborating with others across the textiles industry to transform the sector. The roadmap will ensure products are made to be recyclable, more products are acquired for re use, and more circular raw material than linear raw material is in new products.

We’re delighted to announce that we are one of the pioneering signatories to Textiles 2030, the UK’s most ambitious voluntary agreement designed to limit the impact clothes and home textiles have on climate change in line with the Paris Agreement and the UN Fashion Industry Charter for Climate Action.

 

Textiles 2030 uses a ‘ Target Measure Act’ approach to reduce the impact of fashion and homewares products across the UK. Along with other signatories, we will set tough targets, measure the impact of our products and track our progress on an individual basis, towards national targets.


Textiles 2030
Fibre

The Microfibre Consortium work to connect and translate deep academic research with the reality of commercial supply chain production. Their goal is to offer solutions to brands, retailers and manufactures to transform textile production for the greater good of our ecosystems. 

From luxury to workwear and everything in between, the fashion and textile industry is uniting in a shared commitment to reduce the impact of microfibre pollution from textiles to protect our natural environment.

As part of the signatory community, PULSAR® will help to scale root-cause understanding of fibre fragmentation through testing fabrics and sharing results. This enables the Microfiber research team to analyse the factors which effect fragmentation at the fabric level, to inform material research and influence product change.
