Our Sustainability Vision

 

PU foam is a widely used material that has traditionally been made from non-renewable chemicals. Working with multiple stakeholders, The Vita Group continues to be at the vanguard of using lower carbon and more sustainable alternative raw materials. With our suppliers, we pioneered making foam from the world’s first sustainably-sourced polyol.

 

 

Our ambition is to lead the ESG agenda within our industry because, quite simply, we see operating more sustainably, being a stronger partner in our communities and improving as an employer as good for our customers, our employees and everyone that interacts with our business.

In The Vita Group’s 75-year history, we have proven time and time again that we are a catalyst for positive change.

ESG Vision Sustainability - Green - The Vita Group

Our Approach to Sustainability

 

Right for our business, the environment, and the consumer.
Putting sustainability at the heart of all that we do is morally and ethically the right thing to do.

Vita puts words into action.
When we committed to greenhouse gas targets (GHG) in line with the Paris Climate Accord, we also signed up to be one of only 2811 pioneering companies globally taking action by submitting those targets via the Science-Based Targets Initiative (SBTi) – one of the most rigorous analyses of GHG emissions. We have consistently improved our safety record, halving our LTA’s across the group in 2021 and on track for an even better performance in 2022.

Sustainability and Innovation go hand in hand at Vita.
Through our strategic partnerships covering academic research, raw material and wet chemical analysis, development of new sustainable foams, and investment in four Innovation Centres, Vita is an enabler of the circular economy.

Continuously seeking opportunities to work more efficiently.
Vita has pioneered the use of trim materials for carpet underlay, hydroponic/green roof materials, and Revosport. We continue to invest in developing new products, ensuring we remain a net consumer of trim materials.

 

Commercialisation partner of choice.
Vita is defined by multi-layered sustainability breakthroughs: re-purposing by-products, seeking alternative raw materials, enabling customers to improve, and processing trim of our customers’ customers. We are the clear ‘commercialisation partner of choice’ for advanced technologies and sustainable thinking.
