REDUCING OUR FOOTPRINT
Less is more
We go about reducing our environmental footprint via a six-step plan. We start by looking at what we can avoid using, then we go about reducing, reusing and recycling resources across our operations. We also include recovery of resources wherever possible, for example in the way we capture and use waste heat in our processing plant. Only then do we dispose of anything that we simply cannot make use of, but not before we examine how we might be able to change that in future.
Diverting 90% of solid waste from landfill
Through effective separation of waste materials we’ve managed to divert 90% of what would otherwise be solid waste away from landfill, to be reused or recycled. It’s a key area we monitor throughout the year and we set new targets annually.
There’s still a way to go
However much we have achieved, however much we are doing now, there’s always more we can do on our path to improving sustainability. It’s hugely rewarding to keep finding ways we can reduce an impact here or make something more efficient there. And the ultimate reward is knowing we’re always doing better by the planet.
