Resources are getting scarcer, pollution is on the rise and soaring temperatures and environmental degradation make it harder to ignore climate change. Taking concrete steps to protect our shared environment has never been more urgent.
At BGB, care for the environment is embedded in our culture. We take our duty to our customers, our community and the wider environment seriously. One major step we are taking to improve our processes and reduce our environmental impact is transitioning to the circular economy. We believe the circular economy is the key to a more sustainable future. We are eager to find ways to apply circular economy principles in all areas of the business.
"A circular economy is an economic system aimed at eliminating waste and promoting the continual use of resources.” The Ellen MacArthur Foundation
A circular economy is a systemic approach to economic development designed to benefit businesses, society, and the environment. In contrast to the ‘take-make-waste’ linear model, a circular economy is regenerative by design and aims to gradually decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.
BGB’s Circular Economy strategy is based on the following four principles:
> Design out waste and pollution
> Keep products and materials in use
> Regenerate natural systems
> Employee buy-in and engagement
BGB provides solutions to industries leading the way in sustainability and recycling such as Wind & Renewable Energy, Wastewater Treatment and Aquaculture.
Optimised for quality and maintenance, BGB also offers servitisation options for our customers that have demanding uptime requirements and environmental drivers. Extended warranties and our repair pool service ensure that you are never waiting for spare parts. This way of working allows our design team to optimise for quality and longevity instead of consumption and price; ensuring that we continue to provide sustainable solutions for a better world tomorrow.
