Environmental, Social and Governance Strategy

Our purpose is to build solutions which make a difference, create employment and opportunities, and allow Rowe to give back to our wider community.

We are committed to making a positive impact and creating sustainable value for the future.

Net Zero Commitment

Environmental

Sustainability is embedded into our culture and business through knowledge, collaboration, and innovation.  It is an integral part of our culture and will make us part of a positive sustainable change for the future.

As part of this Rowe has committed to be Net Zero by 2050 through:

  • Reducing our consumption of goods and services
  • Embedding sustainability into procurement
  • Reducing amount of waste
  • Encouraging sustainable travel as the norm
  • Reducing business travel
  • Becoming more energy aware

During this journey, we are working with Ecologi to created Climate Positivity by funding environmental projects.  This is coupled with an annual company volunteering day supporting local environmental projects.

Social

People are at the heart of our business.

Innovation, growth, knowledge sharing, and support are all reflected in our culture.  It is an agile, living thing which reflects the Rowe community and our shared purpose.
