Case study: Sacla UK


Leading food company Sacla’ is working towards BCorp status and sees it as critical to engage their staff on their journey. They used Sustainabl’s employee emissions tool to baseline their workforce emissions, getting a 100% response rate in the process as well a range of ideas directly from staff that can enhance and their accelerate their progress further.

The Challenge

Sacla’ makes world renowned Pesto and is on a mission lead the way in sustainability.
They are currently embedding BCorp principles across the business in preparation for certification, and collecting baseline data for their journey to Net-Zero is a fundamental part of this.

They currently collect no data on employee impact directly, but this has become more relevant as the workforce has moved to a mix of office and home working.

Making their staff a key part of their sustainability journey is a critical part of the mission and they are always looking for interesting and engaging ways to do this, while not detracting from the work itself.

Moving our business towards sustainability and net zero, and supporting our staff on the journey is really important to us. Sustainabl gave us a quick, tangible and effective way to make this process easier.

Why Sustainabl

Sustainabl’s employee emissions tool combines 3 tasks into 1…

Collecting a missing set of data attributed directly to staff; engaging staff with the company’s overall net-zero objective; and identifying areas of emissions and cost reduction potential for both individuals and the business as a whole.

The tool’s simplicity meant that it fitted easily into the way Sacla’ collects its wider data and its custom design meant like it felt like an extension of the Sacla brand.

How it worked

Cleverly, Sacla’ ran a specific event to collectively complete the tool.

The entire workforce met over breakfast and worked through the questions together (it takes a matter of minutes to complete).

Fully bespoke to the Scala’ mission and objectives, the tool contained key messaging
that the team we able to take on board together and discuss.


A 100% completion rate gave Sacla its first full set of employee emissions for commuting, home working and hybrid working.

Sustainabl’s end to end process gave valuable time back to the HR, Sustainability and leadership team along side a set of data dashboards that have enabled them to identify a key areas to make reductions

A simple and engaging and process to involve staff in our sustainability strategy, and give us the data we need, taking workload away from our comms and HR teams.
