As a leader in the manufacture and distribution of industrial fasteners, we are committed to making our company — as well as our customers and suppliers —
more sustainable in what we do and how we do it.

Sustainable Material Sourcing

At Optimas, sustainability is a core business imperative. We’re focused on our material sourcing sustainability efforts to ensure we continue to drive improvement across our manufacturing operations.

Sustainability Goals

We have set aggressive goals for our sustainability efforts. We intend to reduce our Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon footprint by 50% in the next five years, with the ultimate aim to reach net zero over the next 15 years.

Reducing Energy Usage

We invest in ways to reduce our energy usage, both in our facilities and in how we source for our customers. We’re also looking at opportunities to reduce greenhouse gas emissions across our operations.

Optimas calculated its full Scope 1, 2 & 3 greenhouse gas emissions (GHG) inventory for January – December 2022 as a baseline for future emission reduction targets.


Optimas is targeting a 10% overall reduction by 2025. We will communicate our near-term and net-zero targets, as they relate to goods and services, with suppliers.


Optimas has set a reduction target of 55% in Scope 1 & 2 emissions to reach net-zero by 2037. By reducing emissions and business innovations, Optimas aims to reach a reduction target of  51.6% in Scope 3 emissions, per £m of revenue, by 2030 from the 2022 baseline.


Optimas is targeting a reduction in Scope 1,2 & 3 emissions to 50%, from the 2022 baseline, by 2032. This is in line with the Science-Based Targets Initiative’s (SBTi) net-zero standard.


Optimas is aligned with US and UK regulations to reach the target of net-zero emissions from heavy goods vehicles (HGVs) under 26 tons that are involved in receiving inventory from suppliers and shipping products to customers.


Optimas has set a net-zero goal for Scope 1 & 2 (market basis) by 2037. This will require a 90% emissions reduction from the baseline year of 2022. Both targets are more ambitious than the reductions required to limit global warming to 1.5 C stipulated in the Paris Climate Agreement.


Optimas has set a long-term target of reducing Scope 1,2 & 3 emissions to 10% of the 2022 baseline by 2042 to achieve its net-zero goals.


Optimas has a Scope 3 target of reaching net-zero by 2050. This aligned with US and UK regulations and many of our customers’ strategic plans. Reaching this net-zero target will require a 3.2% annual reduction in Scope 3 emissions regardless of business growth.

Optimas is working with an energy and sustainability advisor, providing us with science-based targets to work towards.

Optimas is committed to reducing our carbon footprint. From January-April 2023 we have been holding business-wide consultation meetings to establish our current position and detailed baseline data.

  • Our commitment in 15 years: Net Zero carbon footprint by 2037.

  • 50% reduction in carbon footprint at US and UK manufacturing facilities in five years.

  • We are implementing plans to reduce our Scope 1 and 2 carbon footprint by 50% by 2027 and reach net zero by 2037.
