CLD Physical Security Systems, a North West-based business and the leading manufacturer and supplier of rigid mesh fencing and security gates in the UK, has partnered with Planet Mark, a sustainability certification that verifies and measures carbon and social data to reduce emissions.
CLD is a leading supplier of security fencing in the UK, offering tailored, trusted and durable security solutions to protect environments such as data centres, schools, transport hubs, manufacturing warehouses, high-profile sporting venues, open spaces, and Critical National Infrastructure (CNI) sites.
CLD consistently strives to introduce solutions that align with sustainable principles, such as their rental security systems. Rental options in the security industry provide a sustainable alternative, promoting resource efficiency and waste reduction. They offer clients access to high-quality security-rated solutions that provide a high level of security on a temporary basis, thereby reducing the need for new materials and long-term commitments.
To further its sustainability goals, CLD has now partnered with the sustainability accreditation, Planet Mark. The Planet Mark Business Certification is an internationally recognised sustainability certification for businesses reporting its carbon footprint and demonstrating continuous progress, encouraging action and building an empowered community of like-minded individuals.
As part of CLD’s commitment to environmental best practice, the business strategically emphasises rental solutions and solar-powered innovations that pave the way for a greener and more secure future, aligning with the contemporary focus on circular economies and resource optimisation. In addition to these sustainable solutions, CLD has made significant strides in incorporating eco-friendly materials into its product lines, including the use of 100% recycled plastic for its FenceSafe bases, and the incorporation of 78% recycled steel in its steel fencing and posts. Furthermore, CLD's hoarding systems use 80% recycled plastic, contributing to a greener and more sustainable future.
Russell Wells, Director of CLD , commented: “As a business, it is critical that we measure our own impact on the environment. Planet Mark will support us with measuring and validating our carbon footprint, creating a clear picture of all our environmental impacts. Our products embrace the latest in innovative technology with sophisticated control systems to ensure the highest level of security and sustainability.
“We are aware of the rising threat of greenwashing throughout competing industries and so it is hugely important for us to document regular updates on our sustainability achievements. That’s why, throughout 2023 and beyond, we look to accelerate our sustainability journey. At the heart of our vision lies a steadfast commitment to sustainable solutions without compromising on security or longevity.”
Russell adds, “We want to continue to do our part in having a positive impact on the planet and society. Each and every one of us plays an important role in our sustainability journey and we’re encouraging colleagues and customers to get involved in any way they can.”
