Igne utilises the Future-Fit methodology to further its ESG ambitions - with the help of Paul Breslin, Igne's ESG and Regulatory Risk Director, and The Solix Group.

Meet Paul Breslin - ESG and Regulatory Risk Director

Hi, my name is Paul Breslin. I am the ESG and Regulatory Risk Director for Igne. 


Guided by the Future-Fit ESG methodology, I am wholeheartedly devoted to propelling Igne towards a more sustainable future. 


We will forge a path that ensures our operations align with the highest environmental, social, and governance standards, leaving a positive and lasting impact on the world we inhabit.

The Future-Fit Methodology

The Future-Fit ESG methodology goes beyond traditional ESG frameworks. It sets a high bar for companies by defining a set of environmental and social goals that all organisations should strive to meet to ensure their operations do not compromise the ability of future generations to thrive.

Future-Fit provides a set of 23 goals (translated from the UN's Sustainable Development Goals) that companies, such as Igne, can use to assess their sustainability performance. These goals cover a range of areas, including climate change, water use, biodiversity, employee well-being, and human rights. By aligning with these goals, companies such as SafeLane can work towards becoming truly sustainable and future-fit.

Our Future-Fit Goals

Of Future-Fit's 23 goals, Igne has selected 17 to pursue. 6 goals have been excluded due to being tailored towards manufacturing / product based businesses, whereas Igne is purely service based. 

Each of Igne's goals are listed below. You can click each goal to learn more about them via the Future-Fit website.

Renewable Energy  Water Usage    Procurement  Operational Emissions  Greenhouse Gases

Our Progress

The table below will be regularly updated when Igne makes ESG progress. 

August 2022 - March 2023

Igne began its Future-Fit journey in August of 2022. Since then, it has made progress on the following goals:

BE04: Igne doubled its overall recycling performance from 43% to 86% for its 10 UK-based offices. The recycling categories include paper, cardboard, metals, electronics, wood, glass, inert waste, oil, and batteries.

BE11: Igne became accredited with the Living Wage Foundation, meaning all of its employees are paid at or above the real living wage.

BE12: Igne benchmarked this goal at 90% Future-Fit.

BE14: Igne has begun working on a transparent, accountable employee concern / feedback system which will be implemented in the near future.

April 2023 Paul Breslin was promoted to ESG and Regulatory Risk Director, taking over Igne's UK-based ESG responsibilities.
May 2023 Paul has been inducted and has now begun laying the groundworks for ESG progress.
