Carbon footprint

We are proud to partner with Carbon Footprint Ltd, who, in 2022, assessed Global Brands’ operational Greenhouse Gas emissions, and thus have officially become a Carbon Footprint Standard Assessed Organisation.

From this assessment, Carbon Footprint Ltd set us short-term and long-term science-based targets to reduce our carbon footprint.

In the short-term, we have committed to work towards a 40% reduction in emissions per £M turnover by 2030, and in the long-term a 92% reduction in emissions per £M turnover by 2050. 

Below are a few of the ways we are currently reducing our emissions and changing our ways of working to be a more sustainable business for the future:


of our fleet of company cars are either fully electric or hybrid


of our warehouse energy is powered by solar panels

Approx 65%

of our staff force are hybrid workers, reducing our carbon footprint


of our brands now use labels made from paper and are 100% recyclable 


of our plastic and glass bottles and cans are recyclable

So, what does reducing our operational carbon footprint look like over the coming months and years?

  • Engage with suppliers and logistics providers to ensure we are working with like-minded partners who have ambitions similar to our own
  • Engage with external landlords to ensure all properties are on a 100% renewable electricity tariff by 2025
  • Begin switching the owned lorry fleet to use Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuels
  • Transition 100% of company cars and vans to electric by 2040
  • Transition to a fully zero-carbon logistics fleet by 2050
  • Reduce business travel where possible
  • Constantly review manufacturing processes to reduce our impact on the environment where possible
