One Planet: Engineering with Purpose is Spirax-Sarco Engineering’s Sustainability Strategy and its commitment to sustainability as well as its roadmap to building a more sustainable future. Through six strategic initiatives the Group will deliver: climate and environmental action; customer sustainability; resilient supply chains and stronger communities to achieve its company purpose.

One Planet guides Spirax-Sarco Engineering’s operations as it works with others, including its suppliers, customers and local communities, to leave a better world for tomorrow. Protecting and restoring biodiversity is one of the six strategic initiatives which the Group will deliver.

The company identified that the most significant impact its direct operations have on nature is the land it occupies.  It calculated the total area of its global operational facilities and the Group agreed to take a nature positive approach and protect the equivalent area of biodiverse-rich habitat each year for five years (a total of 2,785 acres).

To achieve this, Spirax-Sarco Engineering has partnered with World Land Trust (WLT), to support our Buy an Acre project on the Somuncurá Plateau in Argentinian Patagonia, helping to facilitate WLT partner Fundacion Habitat y Desarrollo to establish and manage this new nature reserve.
