SAM-Sensory Dimensions commitment to sustainability – November 2022

Climate change continues to take centre stage and the world’s eyes were on COP27 in Sharm-el-Sheikh, Egypt this month.

Strong business ethics and sustainability are at the heart of our values at SAM Sensory and Consumer Research and we have a commitment to becoming carbon-neutral by 2025. We are taking positive strides towards this goal in the way we work every day. Here are some examples:

  • The crockery, cutlery and glassware used in central location tests is re-usable rather than made of disposable materials.
  • Left-over food from fieldwork is distributed to charities.
  • Waste is meticulously sorted and composted where possible.
  • We are piloting parcel boxes sent to consumers for in-home testing that can be re-used by being converted into letter format and mailed back to the manufacturer for re-use.

To reinforce our commitment to business ethics and the environment we have been certified by ecovadis and Sedex.
