3R has completed a Sustainable Development Report annually since 2014/15 and each year submits it to the Sustainable Business Council for review. We find the process to be invaluable in supporting our sustainability journey.
A Sustainable Development Report (SDR) identifies economic, environmental and social issues and impacts related to a business. The SDR is a valuable tool that can be used to highlight areas for improvement; identify opportunities for change; manage risk; develop and enhance reputation; improve processes and systems; and enhance internal and external communications.
ISO Certification gives us the opportunity to demonstrate that our sustainability values sit at the heart of the way we do business.
