Reducing our carbon footprint - Continuous improvement
Although the data above is a great start our team continue to look at ways to continually improve our environmental impact. The items below are our ideas for the future to help reduce our carbon footprint.
Reducing plastic wrapping
Our operations team are working to reduce our plastic wrapping usage by moving to a bailing system that uses recyclable bands to hold pallets and parcels together instead of polythene wrapping.
More recycling, less waste collections
Our staff are looking at ways to better sort our recycling and use more recycled products in order to reduce the number of waste collections we require. Less waste collections means less fuel used by our waste company.
Electric charging points for staff and visitors
With the future of motoring becoming more electric we are looking at ways that we can encourage our staff and partners to move to electric or hybrid vehicles. By providing electric charging points our staff would be able to charge their cars during the day ready for their commute home.
Electric delivery vehicles
We currently ship thousands of parcels per year which all require delivery to our customers. Our team are working with our delivery partners to see how we can use more electric vehicles to deliver our parcels.
We are focussed as a business on doing our part to help the environment by working closely with our customers, partners and suppliers to reduce waste and continue to source sustainable products that help to reduce the impact on the planet.
Our Home, Our Responsibility.
