Economy and Waste Reduction Principles
To always ensure environmental best practice in line with our Environmental and Sustainability Policies and in compliance of our ISO14001:2015 accreditation. This commitment covers multiple parts of our operations, including:
As part of Radii Planet Group’s ongoing commitment to sustainability, we have published a library of Environmental Product Declarations (EPDs) for our aluminium framed partitioning and door systems:
Our EPDs are based on results from life cycle assessment (LCA) studies, formulated using 2019 production data from the RP Products’ manufacturing facility in Burgess Hill, UK and from a key supplier in Aylesbury, UK.
RPG's EPDs present details of the relevant LCA, a description of the product life cycle that it covers, the values for the environmental indicators specified by EN 15804, in accordance with ISO 14025 and a brief explanation of the results.
To enhance and guarantee their value and credibility to users, EPD are subject to rules and standards, which mandate independent external verification.
All of RPG's EPDs are therefore produced with respect to the Product Category Rules defined by an independent EPD Programme Operator.
Visit our downloads page to download EPDs for each of the listed products.
We understand the importance of transparency, not only when sharing information on our products, services, policies and procedures, but also those of our supply chain.
We expect the same regard be given by our suppliers to environmental, human rights and social value principles, as we demonstrate ourselves.
Where required, we can report on the compliance status of our suppliers and provide supporting documentation for assessment, including:
Radii Planet Group is pleased to have contributed towards several construction projects that have achieved or exceeded the required performance criteria in the assessment of sustainable performance.
We can demonstrate compliance against the most commonly used sustainability standards for building projects:
Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) is a green building certification program used worldwide. The USGBC (The U.S. Green Building Council) is a provider of LEED & promotes sustainability in building design, construction, and operation.
An international scheme that provides independent third party certification of the assessment of the sustainability performance of individual buildings, communities and infrastructure projects.
An environmental assessment method, benchmark and standard for non domestic fit outs, which comprises more than a hundred 'good practice' measures covering energy and CO2 emissions, waste, water, materials, pollution, wellbeing and transport.
Central to our sustainability work is the ongoing development and implementation of our Net Zero Carbon Strategy, a key pillar of our environmental and sustainability commitment as we contribute towards the drive to reach a position of 'net zero carbon'.
RPG have implemented a Net Zero Carbon Strategy as part of our continued commitment to reducing our environmental impact and to aid the UK government in their target of the country being NZC by 2050.
Around 40 per cent of the UK’s carbon footprint is attributed to the ‘built environment’ – meaning that our progress in implementing our strategy and supporting our industry colleagues will be of direct importance if the nation is to meet its targets.
