As part of the Anticimex group, Pestokill seeks to meet new demands for healthy environments, for both individuals and companies across the UK, through pest prevention, new technology and sustainable solutions.
We aim to be the industry leader in reducing the use of biocides, while at the same time improving security and safety for health care, food, Industry and Occupied properties. We are ISO 9001 certified and working toward ISO 14001 for July 2023.
Our efforts are applied at a local level, in close cooperation with the local community and UK public agencies. Consistent with the Anticimex Model, Branch Managers are responsible for the sustainability performance of their branch and the Managing Director is responsible for the sustainability performance of their Country.
Governance is initiated at Group-level and mainly regulated by Anticimex’s Code of Conduct. The Chief Operating Officer has been assigned the responsibility for the Group’s sustainability work and the process of integrating sustainability measures.
Our sustainability work is based on the UN Sustainable Development Goals (“SDGs”). (#_ftn2) Six of the UN goals have been designated as especially relevant for the Group, resulting in four focus areas:
- Reducing the use of biocides – based on SDG 3 (good health and well-being), SDG 9 (industry, innovation and infrastructure) and SDG 15 (life on land)
- Reducing carbon dioxide emissions – based on SDG 13 (climate action).
- Being the preferred employer – based on SDG 8 (decent work and economic growth) and SDG 10 (reduced inequalities).
- Promoting health and safety in the workplace – based on SDG 3 (good health and well-being).
- The Group also tracks branch performance in accordance with certain KPIs that are aligned with the SDGs throughout the five focus areas.
- The UN Sustainable Development Goals is a collection of 17 goals adopted by the UN in 2015 as part of its 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development
