Sustainability at Servomex

A commitment to sustainability, across our organization

Servomex has embarked on an ambitious and exciting sustainability program with a commitment to reach net zero carbon across our organisations by 2030 and across our value chain by 2040– part of a coordinated activity across the Spectris group.

Our focus is not just on reducing emissions, but on introducing a sustainable approach to our people and operations. This commitment is supported at the corporate level, ensuring our actions have the full weight of the Spectris leadership team behind them. Find out more about sustainability at Spectris.

We partner with leading expert organizations such as EcoAct and EcoVadis to validate the effectiveness and veracity of the activities within our sustainability program and our Net Zero targets have been validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi).

We are also aligned with SBTi’s Business Ambition for 1.5°C campaign, a global coalition which aims to help halve global emissions by 2030 to keep the global temperature rise to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels.

Reducing our impact on the environment

As a responsible business, Servomex recognizes its role in tackling environmental degradation and climate change. We do this in two ways: first, through providing products and services that reduce the environmental impact of our customers, and secondly, through the active management and mitigation of the environmental impact of our own operations.

As part of a Spectris Group-wide process we have undertaken a climate risk assessment scenario analysis as required by the Taskforce for Climate-related Financial Disclosure (TCFD) to understand the risks and opportunities present in our business related to climate change.

We have also published a credible net zero target approved by the Science Based Targets (SBTI), which commits us to reaching net zero for Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions and abating 42% of our Scope 3 emissions by 2030. We aim to have abated all possible emissions across our value chain, and balanced remaining emissions to reach net zero, by 2040.

In 2020 our operations have obtained a B rating from the Carbon Disclosure Project.

Ensuring more sustainable business operations

Servomex is committed to supporting the values and sustainable goals of all stakeholders through its own operational activity. To this end, we are developing a common set of tools to categorize our products and understand the sustainability of our market position.

Working with the consultants Finch and Beak, we carried out a successful pilot scheme to determine how we can assess and improve the sustainability of our products. This will be rolled out across our entire product range.

In 2021 we have begun work with EcoVadis to review our supply chain assurance processes to ensure that all our suppliers align with our values  on human rights, labour laws, and supply chain management.

Taking care of our people

Servomex aims to be the employer of choice for our people and for our future personnel, by providing long-term, sustainable and rewarding careers in a safe and inclusive working environment.

Key to this is our ongoing Wellbeing program, which supports the physical and mental welfare of our staff with a long-term culture of healthy high performance.

Servomex also operates a culture of recognition and appreciation of its people’s talents and achievements, and has opened communication channels to build further employee engagement.

We support Spectris’ campaign to increase science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) activity globally, recognizing that this is key to success and industrial prosperity in all the countries we work in.

These efforts are backed by the Spectris Foundation, which champions those with a passion for technology, aiming to improve their access to a quality STEM education, and helping them to enable a cleaner, healthier, and more productive world.
