Since joining the Scottish Government backed scheme in 2019, Robertson has demonstrated significant progress by delivering against the programme’s requirements for bronze, silver and gold Pledge levels before recently receiving platinum accreditation. 

Robertson was required to demonstrate the positive actions undertaken to improve its resource efficiency across the businesses, key activities included: 

Graeme Hannah, head of sustainability, said: “I’m delighted that we’ve been recognised by Zero Waste Scotland for the progress Robertson has made around Responsible Business in recent years. Teams and individuals across the businesses have embraced and implemented new initiatives which help strengthen our position as a sustainable and responsible business.”  

Tom Flatman, analyst consultant, Zero Waste Scotland, commented: “The evidence submitted by Robertson to support a platinum pledge is really good and evidences Robertson has been very active in resource efficiency areas in recent months. I would like to send my praises on to the team about how impressive this all is. I hope this continues to develop and helps the business continue to progress.”
