An old Indian proverb says: we do not inherit the earth from our parents, we borrow it from our children. We believe that if you live by this wonderful principle, you surely contribute to a better world. At SIP Protection we do so in many ways. First of all, it is our long term ambition to be a CO2neutral company. In 2017, we’ve taken some steps towards this.
Furthermore, we walk the talk. This means that what we behave as responsible citizens would do. We value safety, honesty, quality, integrity, diversity, innovation and sustainability. Our words are translated into actions and in turn these are translated into many awards and certificates. We are STEP certified, are one of the first producers of garments to obtain the ISO 14000 certificate and we are examining the feasability to hold a CO2neutral label.
Tree Nation is an initiative to reforest the world and fight climate change. Because no company, NGO or government can solve this problem by itself, Tree Nation believes the solution must come from collaboration at a massive scale.
SIP Protection shares the values of Tree Nation and decided to plant its own SIP Protection forest within the Tree-Nation community.
We are convinced that sustainable communication with sustainable actions lead to a better world for every single one of us. Therefore, a part of the SIP Protection marketing efforts will go to this Tree Nation project.
You will be able to follow this forest also via our website and our sponsoring efforts at many events.
Trees Need Care. Arborists Care For Trees.
SIP Protection is proud to partner with International Society of Arboriculture in supporting TreesAreGood.org to promote proper tree care, and the professional practice of arboriculture.
BAAs coordinates today's global national activities for professional tree careers. Main activities are, on the one hand, the establishment and organization of the European Tree Worker (ETW) and European Tree Technician (ETT) examinations in Belgium under the regulations of the European Arboricultural Council (EAC). On the other hand, BAAs organizes the National Belgian Tree Climb Championship under the rules of International Society of Arboriculture (ISA).
In 2017, BAAs obtained the status of professional association (official since May 12, 2017), and in the coming months, the organizational structure of BAAs will be restored to represent and support the tree care sector.
The "Societe Française d'Arboriculture" unites all (French) actors in forestry and horticulture. The federation informs members about legislation and develops and supports scientific knowledge and international knowledge exchange.
For more than 25 years, the Rhino is part of our logo. His tough skin protects him against the claws and teeth from lions and tigers. And yet he is very fast and agile.
Our garments protect you against the teeth and claws from your chainsaw, and you can stay comfortable at work. For more than 25 years we have been protecting you against the risks of the chainsaw, and we want to continue doing that for many years.
Over the years, we have sold more than 1.000.000 chainsaw trousers. The rhino of SIP Protection thus has protected many chainsaw operators.
In return, we also want to help protect the Rhino. When we came across Siphosetu, a South African Rhino with a beautiful name, we immediately fell in love with her. And we decided to adopt her.
SIP Protection takes CSR very seriously. So does the group we are part of.
We report on everything we do, including what and how we give back to society.
Our extensive report of 150 pages contains everything you want to know about Sioen and Corporate Social Responsibility. In this report, you can read about our efforts on environment, workplace, market place and society. It is a sustainability report and more. You can read about our carbon footprint, charity work, our efforts in the field of sustainable and renewable energy sources and products, our waste management and many more. It gives you an overview of who we are and what we stand for.
Unique in our business, is that we report the carbon footprint of our garments. The carbon intensity average of one Sioen/ SIP Protection garment is 1.97 kg CO2 whereas average carbon footprint per garment easily can be five to tenfold.
