SUSTAINABILITY

At Radii Planet Group, we recognise and are acting upon our legal and moral responsibility to manage our business operations and reduce any detrimental impact on our planet.

We understand that a company such as ours has the opportunity to make a difference; for all employees and stakeholders, at all locations, for every project we work on, and with every product we produce.

OUR COMMITMENT.

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:

  • DESIGN:  Our systems are designed and drawn in order to minimise wastage. All of our projects are extensively surveyed, CAD detailed and then 3D modelled. This allows great accuracy in our material take off and efficient calibration.
  • RESPONSIBLE SOURCING:   Aluminium and glass materials are all sourced within the UK and delivered direct to our manufacturing facility, while timber materials come from FSC/PEFC certified suppliers and transported directly to projects.
  • PRODUCTION:  BTMC tracking and aluminium pre-fabrication prior to site arrival keeps waste to a minimum, while our core materials carry EPDs to aid understanding of carbon impact and environmental performance.
  • PACKAGING:  We have invested in our site operations allowing us to store, collect and reuse packaging across multiple projects. Where we cannot re-use we recycle, using approved waste specialists who monitor and report back what we send them.
  • TRANSPORT:  A minimum of FORS bronze is required on HGVs delivering to RPG sites. Including our factory location and central London logistics hub, our suppliers all operate within a 65-mile radius of central London. We seek to consolidate deliveries on all projects and operate our own fleet of vehicles to reduce transportation mileage and CO2 emissions.
  • RE-USE:  Our 3D modelling capability can allow redeployment into new locations of previously installed relocatable systems and materials and minimise new material requirements.
  • RECYCLING:  We source aluminium from suppliers that use >70% recycled content, while glass products can be returned to source with approximately 30% put back into the manufacturing process.
OUR COMMITMENT.

COMPLIANCE.

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:

  • 1. BREEAM: an international scheme that provides independent third party certification of the assessment of the sustainability performance of individual buildings, communities and infrastructure projects.
  • 2. SKA: 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.
  • 3. LEED: 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.

ADAPTABLE. REUSABLE. SUSTAINABLE.

At Radii Planet Group we believe that 100 per cent reusable and relocatable partitioning solutions, able to be redeployed multiple times throughout the lifecycle of the product, will be a key area of consideration moving forward.

As working habits evolve, creating flexible, agile internal workspaces will be a true benefit to organisations who aim to keep pace with the ever-changing needs of their community.

With the industry-wide push towards a more sustainable future, the use of reconfigurable office partitions greatly reduces material wastage and — through the gathering of product EPD data — can be a notable contributing factor towards the achievement of recognised environmental standards and certifications.

THE ROUTE TO NET ZERO CARBON

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 nationwide 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 government in their target of the UK 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.
