These efforts are investments toward a sustainable future. Our commitments go beyond the requirements of the regulatory environments in which we operate and include:
- Estabilished sustainability and ESG Reporting Team
- Using Word Wide Generation (WWG) we measure, track and report relevant social economic and environmental impacts, benchmarked against key policies, standards and framework in support of UN Sustainable Development Goals
- World Wide Generation benchmarking, monitoring and sustainability reporting
- ISO 13485:2016 quality system certification
Our offices use 100% renewable energy, LED lights and other energy-efficient, low energy systems
We view the protection of the environment as a core priority despite our small environmental footprint and low relative climate risk
- Parsortix technology uses pressure to harvest cells rather than a chemical approach reducing/negating the requirement for antibody reagents and other chemicals
- We restrict business travel to necessity, promote use of video conferencing, and encourage home / flexible working, cycle to work and carpool schemes
- Our landlord’s waste management services seek to divert landfill and recycle as much as possible, and we utilize several other specialist recycling services and systems
In 2021, ANGLE further responded to increasing investor demand for transparency and higher standards of sustainability reporting by engaging with World Wide Generation (WWG), the provider of a leading digital reporting tool for small and mediums sized companies
