Let’s Talk About Climate Change
The UK is hosting the 26th UN Climate Change Conference of the Parties (COP26) in Glasgow on 31 October – 12 November 2021.
The COP26 summit brings parties together to accelerate action towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
We are at a turning point for our planet and the decisions we make now will directly impact our ability to safeguard the environment for future generations.
MBP Solutions is joining the thousands that talk and take action to combat climate change and its impacts, not only on this occasion. The degradation of the world’s natural resources caused by human activities has created the need to move from a linear model of consumption to one that maintains the highest utility and value of products, components and materials at all times. Our company encourages sustainable production and consumption patterns that help bring the concept of the circular economy to life.
Sustainability sits at the core of our business as we work together for a more sustainable world, by helping industries reduce their impact on the environment. We provide our unique service to industries who want to handle by-products in a sustainable and responsible way. What we do has a direct positive impact on the planet and we are fully committed to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Between January and June 2021, MBP Solutions took part in the “SDG Ambition Accelerator”, a six-month program that challenges and supports participating companies of the UN Global Compact in selecting and integrating “SDG Benchmarks” into core business management. The “SDG Benchmarks” were developed by the UN Global Compact in consultation with business leaders and partner organisations to translate the ambition level of the SDGs into concrete aspirations for business in the areas in which companies have a substantial impact.
One of the SDG Ambition Benchmarks that MBP is aiming to integrate into the company’s strategy is “Science-based emissions reduction in line with a 1.5°C pathway”. With this in mind, we are also taking part in the first version of the “Climate Ambition Accelerator”. The training program will run until December 2021, and it is expected to help us be better prepared to join the world’s transition to a net-zero future.
As part of this development, we will be working on a project where we will attempt to collect and register the GHG emissions from our third-party transports when we ship goods. This will be the first step in being able to communicate to our customers and suppliers the GHG impact from transports and potentially in offering transport alternatives with respect to GHG emissions.
MBP’s Sustainability Approach
Since 2017 MBP Solutions LTD has been committed to the UN Global Compact corporate responsibility initiative and its principles in the areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. In December 2020, MBP Solutions submitted the latest Communication on Progress.
Sustainability has been part of our ideological backbone since the beginning, as our organisation captures and delivers value in economic, environmental and social terms.
Our business brings to life the concepts of industrial ecology and circular economy by materialising the idea that the waste stream of one industry can be used as a key resource by another.
The report focuses on our performance, challenges and opportunities and it covers MBP’s entire organisation, including administrative offices, industrial facilities and sourcing operations.
MBP Solutions is a company specializing in sales and market development of by-products from industries with a biological manufacturing process. Using by-products in different application is both sustainable and part of a circular economy.
