With an ever growing need to protect the environment, we strive as a business to continuously find new ways to monitor and improve the ways in which we work. Having recently received a gold membership from the Supply Chain Sustainability SCHOOL, we are heading in the right direction.
We have made many changes over recent months, such as significantly reducing the amount of waste we send to landfill as well as minimising the energy used per unit. We have also reviewed our manufacturing and design process, identifying ways to further reduce waste going forward.
It’s important to us that the suppliers we use have a similar vision to ours and because of this we have conducted a full review of our supply chain, ensuring they also have a sustainability plan in place too.
“Continuously find new ways to monitor and improve the ways in which we work.”
Whilst the improvements within the manufacturing and installation side of our business will have the biggest impact on the environment, we have also assessed the way our offices work too. Training plans are in place highlighting the importance of sustainability and how our team can make changes to their working day. We have seen an increased uptake in video conferencing to reduce the amount of travel required and minimise vehicle usage.
However, these are just some of the things we have done so far, there is still plenty more we can and will do.
The Road to Sustainability
The positive impact that tree planting can have in supporting efforts to mitigate the effects of climate change is no secret. Each new tree planted sequesters CO2 over its growth time, helping to slow down damage caused through deforestation, desertification, and flooding.
As part of our ongoing commitment to sustainable development and a low-carbon economy, we have partnered with (more:trees); an organisation that helps businesses take impactful climate action through global tree planting projects.
