            At Howdens, sustainability is central to our growing business to ensure we continue to be worthwhile for our staff, our customers, our suppliers, the environment, and the communities we serve. That is why sustainable behaviours are adopted right across the business from our material sourcing to manufacturing, right through to depot waste management and our distribution fleet. It is through these behaviours that we have achieved carbon-neutral in our dedicated factories in the UK and reached zero waste to landfill in our production operations. Both accomplishments align with the Science Based Targets Initiative (or SBTi) standards, and our ambition is to halve our carbon emissions by 2030. We also continue to develop and re-engineer our products to ensure we meet our mission statement of “no-call-back on quality”, so we produce and source products which are durable, safe, and continue to benefit the environment.

            Product development is central to what we do at Howdens to ensure we meet demand from our trade customers and homeowners alike. Sustainability is a key factor in the design process, with many new products being developed so they are more energy-efficient, use recycled materials, and are recyclable at end of life. It is our goal to make all new products sustainable, and we are constantly creating sustainable products we are proud of.
