CoirProducts.co.uk, a division of Salike Limited, is deeply committed to sustainability as a fundamental aspect of our business ethos. Our focus on making a positive impact extends to the products we offer and the way we operate. With a purpose-driven approach, we consistently take significant strides to minimise our environmental footprint and contribute to climate progress.
A significant milestone for Salike Limited is our achievement of carbon neutrality, which highlights our unwavering dedication to environmental responsibility. We have been recognised for our commitment by meeting the requirements of ISO 14064-1:2018, earning verification in accordance with ISO 14064-3:2019 for our organisation-level greenhouse gas (GHG) statement. These standards provide clear guidelines for quantifying and verifying our GHG emissions. Building on the carbon-neutral certifications of our parent company, which is involved in the manufacturing and supply of our products, we ensure that our operations are carbon neutral. Our products are manufactured in Sri Lanka, where the raw material is readily available, and we follow the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) processes to offset our carbon footprint.
Coir, being a natural, biodegradable, and organic resource, allows us to bring truly sustainable and trusted products to the UK market. It serves as an environmentally-friendly alternative to peat-based products, especially in horticulture. The extraction of peat has detrimental effects on ecosystems. At CoirProducts.co.uk, we view every decision as an opportunity to minimise our impact on the environment.
Our commitment to sustainability extends beyond carbon neutrality. Our coir products proudly carry vegan certification, ensuring they are cruelty-free and meet the rigorous standards set by The Vegan Society. As a member of the Organisation for Responsible Businesses, we prioritise social and environmental considerations. Membership with Sedex reinforces our dedication to fair trade and compliance with essential environmental, social, and governance (ESG) legislation.
From the outset, we have embraced environmentally-friendly practices across all facets of our operations. Key initiatives include eliminating unnecessary plastics in our packaging, adopting reusable FSC-certified boxes, and optimising box sizes to enhance transportation efficiency. Our products are free from harmful chemicals, ensuring safety for both people and the planet.
Moreover, Salike Limited adheres to an Ethical Production and Sourcing Policy that upholds ethical business practices throughout our manufacturing and operational processes. We prioritise the welfare of our staff, ensure safe and legal production and sourcing, and minimise harmful impacts on the environment.
At CoirProducts.co.uk, we take great pride in our environmental journey. Our unwavering commitment to purpose over profit places people and the planet at the forefront of our work. We regularly review our operations and supply chain to ensure alignment with our social and environmental commitments. Compliance with national and international labor laws and standards, as outlined by esteemed organisations like Sedex, is of utmost importance to us. By achieving carbon neutrality, we remain steadfast in our core principles of serving our partners and customers with honesty, integrity, and transparency. Our products reflect the care and concern with which they are manufactured, embodying our commitment to creating a better world for all.
