A company that intends to make the difference and to innovate should grant the sustainability on more fronts, from the environmental one to that concerning the work environment. As well known by Xtrac, UK’s award-winning high-performance automotive and motorsport transmission technology specialist, which in the last year has achieved three more important accreditations over the past 12 months. They include attaining the Environment, Social and Governance ESGMark, setting emissions reduction goals through the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi), and recognition as a Real Living Wage Employer.
Adrian Moore, company’s chief executive explained: «Xtrac has a longstanding commitment to ESG matters with employee wellness at the heart of its operations, as measured by our high levels of staff retention. Looking after our employees helps us look after our worldwide customers and other stakeholders, ensuring that we remain at the pinnacle of our industry as it transitions from internal combustion engines to hybrid and electric vehicles. It also ensures that we maintain our exports of around 70 per cent annually to Australia, Asia, Europe, and the Americas».
The accreditation by SBTi explains the commitment to reducing greenhouse gas emissions by 42% within 2030, in compliance with the targets of the Agreement of Paris to maintain the global warming under 1.5°C. On the other hand, in the training ambit, Xtrac Academy is the feather in the cap of the company, which can rely on highly skilled technicians and professional engineers.
