We operate a full waste recycling scheme with our waste contractors who generate energy from our non-recyclable waste generated. We record, report and seek ways to reduce our waste generation and increase our recycling rates.
Recent innovations such as the design and manufacture of a steel stillage for glass door deliveries has enabled the vast reduction of single-use timber pallets. In addition, the carrying capacity of each stillage has been increased allowing more products to be delivered to site per delivery and enabling a reduction in the number of deliveries required. This has a positive impact on fuel usage, congestion and air quality in addition to reduced green house gas and particulate emissions.
We monitor our office and factory energy usage and have targets to reduce our usage. A review of factory efficiencies led to a process change allowing a gas oven to be decommissioned and improved the working environment for our factory operatives.
An LED replacement lighting system is being installed in our High Wycombe office alongside other energy efficient improvement measures.
