Providing Water Solutions for a Healthier Environment
Sustainability has always been in our DNA, and we offer a wide range of environmentally responsible products that are designed to be healthier for users, save water and/or energy, and minimise carbon footprint. We now want to formally embed the environmental, social, and governance (“ESG”) aspects into our products, services, and regulations and put it at the core of our business models and decision-making processes.
Proudly ISO 14001:2015 Certified
Galvin Engineering is proud to have maintained ISO 14001 certification since 2012. ISO 14001 is a valuable management tool supporting the advancement and continual improvement of our environmental responsibility. This includes the enhancement of environmental performance, fulfilment of compliance obligations and achievement of environmental objectives.
What is ESG and Why is it Important?
Evolving from Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), Environmental, Social, and Corporate Governance (ESG) takes the CSR agenda one step further to integrate environmental and social responsibility into core corporate strategy along with a strong governance framework. It involves quantifiable targets and measurable impact assessments. ESG covers a broad range of issues from carbon emissions and waste management to modern slavery and community engagement, corruption and executive remuneration.
An ESG framework is considered something no business should be without if it wants to ensure it remains competitive in a local and global market. Businesses of the future will be measured against key aspects of their people and environmental management and ethical governance practices.
Developing an ESG strategy shows our partners and customers that we are committed to representing our vision, values and the way we operate, creating a level of transparency and comparability.
Our Four Pillars
The World Economic Forum (WEF) organised the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) from the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development of Governance into four pillars: Planet, People, Prosperity and Principles of Governance. These four pillars are the foundation to the development of our ESG Strategy at Galvin Engineering, ensuring we address all areas within the Company.
An ambition to protect the planet from degradation, including through sustainable consumption and production, sustainability managing its natural resources and taking urgent action on climate change, so that it can support the needs of the present and future generations.
An ambition to end poverty and hunger, in all forms, and dimensions, and to ensure that all human beings can fulfill their potential in dignity and equality and in a healthy environment..
An ambition to ensure that all humans being can enjoy prosperous and fulfilling lives and that economic social and technological progress occurs in harmony with nature.
The definition of governance is evolving as organisations are increasingly expected to define and embed their purpose at the centre of their business. However, the principles of agent,
accountability and stewardship continue to be vital for truly “good governance.”
Our strategy, goals and metrics are ingrained in our purpose to create Water Solutions for a Healthier Environment, and have been developed aligning with emission scopes 1, 2 and 3 (as defined by the Greenhouse Gas [GHG] protocol) and the World Economic Forum’s framework as outlined in report “Toward Common Metrics and Consistent Reporting of Sustainable Value Creation”.
Categorised into the four pillars of Planet, People, Prosperity and Principles of Governance, many of the initiatives and projects have already been completed or are underway. Thus, our core focus lies on improving data quality, access, collection and automated reporting.
