We achieved the ISO:9001 accreditation in 2010 and since then we have been committed to meeting or exceeding environmental legislation.
We have implemented a number of new initiatives to work in line with this which also helps our customers meet their own commitments to the environment.
We are committed to meet or exceed environmental legislation and routinely involve our staff in reviewing new legislation and agreeing how to apply best practice.
In 2010, our main distribution centres reduced their energy use by 160%. They also overachieved on their waste recycling targets by recycling over 91% of the waste at their locations.
The design of our delivery boxes ensure that products arrive undamaged. 95% of the products are packaged in fully recyclable cardboard with other materials kept to a minimum and only used when no other form of packaging can be utilised.
We currently sell more than 2,400 products which have a recyclable content of 50% or more and we are continually attempting to increase this number of products within the portfolio with the assistance of our suppliers.
Our strategic objective is to provide a coherent framework of good environmental practice within each of our operating sites. Our Environmental Management System is documented, implemented and maintained, and communicated to all employees.
Where we are operating on client sites we will work with their Environmental Management Representative in achieving shared goals and objectives in line with the clients own systems.
Ensure it is appropriate to the nature scale and environmental impacts of our activities and services.
Ensure that the system is documented implemented and maintained.
We are committed to the process of continual improvement and prevention of pollution.
