Taking Action for a Safer Tomorrow Arco’s Responsible Approach to Sustainability

Climate change. Economic uncertainty. Social inequality. Our world faces many challenges. Arco are taking action for a safer tomorrow.

HSE People took a visit to the H&S Show where we met up with Jim Harbidge, Arco’s Head of Sustainability, highlighted the company’s commitment to sustainability, particularly through initiatives like Responsible Workwear. This line of clothing is not only ethically sourced but also designed to last, with a fully traceable supply chain.

Jim also talked about Arco’s Responsible Hi-Vis range recently launched which has been developed for circularity with life-extending features, responsibly sourced materials and certified production processes for a complete recycling solution at the product’s end-of-life.

Jim explained to us about Arco’s mission to build on their core purpose which is to keep people safe at work by having a clear vision of what we can do to help secure a more sustainable future for everyone:

  • Having a positive impact on people
  • Enabling businesses to be more responsible
  • Taking responsibility for our impact on the planet

A Safe Tomorrow is our strategic plan to help secure a safer future by being more sustainable in how we develop and deliver products and services and how we work with customers and partners.

Our plan spreads across our three key strategic priority areas, whilst they are set out as distinct areas, the goals within each are highly connected and interdependent. Each has been mapped to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and we are prioritising those where we have the biggest impact.

When it comes to sustainability, we believe our job is never done. That’s why as a business we’ll continue to do everything we can to make the world safer in the workplace and beyond.
