Mother Earth Day: Our Commitment to Sustainability
Contributing to sustainable development is a core element of Cube Modular’s business strategy. We are continually focusing our activities on devising solutions to protect the environment, reduce carbon emissions and mitigate the challenges presented by climate change. Sustainability is a natural and integral part of our business and we always strive to act in an ethical, transparent and responsible way, working with our business partners and suppliers to do the same.
Through the Cube International group’s policies and procedures, we aim to aid the mitigation of carbon emissions, improve energy and material efficiency, protect the safety and wellbeing of those who work for, and alongside, us, increase stakeholder awareness and enhance the long-term economic viability of the events, brands and businesses we support.
The Cube International’s Commitment to Sustainability programme, sets the framework for continual refinement and improvements with regards to minimising the environmental impact of our operations.
These include the following commitments:
- Reducing the carbon footprint of logistics across all operations
- Reducing waste associated with branding, packaging and manufacturing across all operations
- Reducing energy use and wastage across all operations
- Increasing the use of recycled materials
- Providing a safe and healthy workplace
- Protecting the long-term health of ecosystems through responsible use of natural resources
CASE STUDY – CONTINEST
The Cube International group has been working with its global partners to specially develop the Continest modular building, making it perfect for use within any industry.
The flexibility of the Continest concept means these innovative and award-winning units are used for temporary accommodation at a range of events, festivals, businesses and venues.
Critically the compact nature of their ‘flat-pack’ system means multiple units can be transported on one HGV vehicle. This can produce up to 80% reductions in haulage CO2.
Coupled with this the system is constructed from 70% recycled and/or recyclable material and has an integrated photovoltaic roof option enabling it to make a major contribution to clients’ sustainability commitment.
By making sustainability an integral part of our strategy and operations, we aim to achieve long-term returns and generate a positive impact for society and the environment, in line with the Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations and the Paris Agreement. We want to make sustainability an integrated part of all our global business relationships and work closely with our suppliers and business partners to achieve long lasting impacts across our entire value chain.
Part of the Cube International group, Cube Modular designs and manufactures modular portable buildings and containers of exceptional design, quality and functionality for sports events, venues, stadia and businesses.
