The UN Global Compact Network UK has organised a series of online peer-learning workshops open to all 270+ SME participants in the Network to help streamline the process of creating environmental strategies and reaching net zero.

David Osborne, chief executive officer for Roman, was asked to speak at the first of the 12-part UN Global Compact Network programme, covering the topic – ‘Developing a Comprehensive Environmental Strategy’. David Osborne shared Roman’s environmental journey and strategy, covering Roman’s experiences and best practice in sustainability.

Roman is immersed in all aspects of the Circular Economy and is committed to using recycled materials in the production process – and to ensure that all parts of all products can be recycled and reused back at their original value at their end of life. Roman was certified by the Carbon Trust as Carbon Neutral in 2021 and are active in many other initiatives within the business relating to sustainability.

The UNGC Programme aims to help SMEs create comprehensive environmental strategies and implement policies and practices to tackle a broad range of environmental issue areas (such as climate change, waste, water, biodiversity, and energy use) across their operations. Each workshop will highlight how leading SMEs are overcoming key challenges and will provide a peer-learning forum through which attendees can share best practices and be signposted to credible tools/resources that can help them make progress on the environmental sustainability agenda.

David Osborne commented: “As a British Manufacturer, we take sustainability and CSR extremely seriously and we are proud to be a member of the prestigious and far-reaching, United Nations Global Compact Network. It was a great opportunity to speak at the opening session of UNGC’s new series of workshops and to share our environmental sustainability journey, and we hope it helps other members tackle the broad range of environmental issues across their operations.”
