Calor Gas Ltd – Britain’s leading supplier of bulk and bottled LPG (Liquefied Petroleum Gas) – has today published its 2015 Sustainability Review.

In 2015 Calor embarked on a new 3-year sustainability strategy, setting 25 ambitious targets across 5 key sustainability areas – Environment, Innovation, Community, Workplace and Marketplace.  New areas of focus for 2015, as identified by Calor’s stakeholders, included waste, employee travel, equality and diversity, supply chain management and air quality.
The 2015 Review charts the company’s progress against these targets and outlines various projects implemented by Calor during the period, not only to help achieve their targets, but also to further enhance their sustainable development proposition.
