Reducing Environmental Impact

At TT we realise that our activities have an environmental impact. As well as producing sustainable products for our customers we optimise our own operations to reduce their impact on the environment, Our goal is to be a net zero carbon business by 2035, with like-for-like annual reductions in our emissions. We are also committed to reducing our single-use plastic and the amount of waste we send to landfill.

MSCI - Environmental, Social & Governance Rating

Our overall progress has been recognised, as we received a rating of ‘AA’ in the 2021 MSCI ESG Ratings assessment, placing TT in the leading companies in its sector group. MSCI ESG Research provides in-depth research, ratings and analysis of the environmental, social and governance-related business practices of thousands of companies worldwide.





Carbon Disclosure Project

In addition, we participated in the 2021 CDP annual climate change survey. CDP is a not-for-profit charity that runs a global disclosure system for companies and other organisations to manage their environmental impacts. It awarded us a stable ‘C’ rating, denoting awareness of climate change issues.






We are committed to driving our ambitious sustainability agenda:

  ESG matters including culture, strategy, compliance, risk and internal controls are governed as part of our overall governance and risk management frameworks, ultimately overseen by the Board. An update on key health, safety and environmental (including sustainability) metrics is provided at each Board meeting and in-depth reviews are undertaken on at least an annual basis.

  Oversight of and decision-making on our environmental strategy and performance is provided by the PSEE Committee and both the Committee Chair and the Non-executive Director representative on the Committee report to the Board on these matters. The Committee is advised by our Sustainability Council which comprises a mix of senior corporate managers and representatives from each division and provides on-the-ground insight and specialist advice as well as enabling the sharing of best practice and ideas across the Group.

  Responsibility for local planning and performance lies with our site managers who work with our site environmental champions and employee green teams to formulate and deliver projects and engage employees with our local and global agendas.
