Calor Gas Launches Its Responsible Business Plan for 2018 - 2020

Apr 27, 2018 9:00 AM ET

Calor Gas has launched its Responsible Business Plan for the next three years. This marks a change in name from the company’s previous sustainability strategies but it reflects the approach Calor’s always taken to sustainability, seeing it as something which encompasses a range of equally important elements. Calor has six brand values, around which they centre their business – Safe, Seamless, Local, Caring, Leading and Sustainable; the Responsible Business Plan encompasses all of these. The plan is based on the three pillars of Our People, Our Business and Our Planet. Essentially this means that Calor will look at the social, environmental and economic impacts of their activities, as well as the long term viability of the company. The Responsible Business Plan has also been developed to support the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, with each target linked to one of the 17 development goals for 2030.

There are 10 targets, split across these three responsible business pillars, which are intended to help the company continue to be a responsible business. These targets range from an ambitious employee volunteering target (50% in the first year, rising to 100% by 2020), to a new approach to wellbeing, reducing our carbon footprint and increasing the supply of BioLPG into the UK market. Calor received its first shipment of BioLPG in March and is part of its parent company, SHV Energy’s, ongoing commitment to reduce our carbon emissions whilst growing our business. SHV Energy has stated that by 2040, its ambition is for 100% of our energy products to be from renewable sources.
