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.

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:

  • 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.

ENVIRONMENTAL PRODUCT DECLARATIONS

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.

SUPPLY
CHAIN
TRANSPARENCY

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:

  • Environmental Product Declaration status (or equivalent)
  • Third party assessment schemes
  • Responsible sourcing evidence
  • Banned substance status / declarations
  • Indoor environmental quality compliance
  • SKA / BREEAM / LEED / WELL credit contributions
  • Modern slavery compliance
  • Supply Chain Transparency

    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:

    • LEED
    • BREEAM
    • SKA

    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.

    BREEAM

    An international scheme that provides independent third party certification of the assessment of the sustainability performance of individual buildings, communities and infrastructure projects.

    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.

    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.

    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 as working habits evolve.

    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 recognized 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 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.

    PEOPLE & COMMUNITY.

    At Radii Planet Group we understand that, alongside the environment, social considerations are also key to building a sustainable future for our Company.
