Steps Taken

We have taken several steps to becoming a more environmentally friendly and sustainable organisation:

  • Lights across our 16-acre headquarters and production facility have been replaced with LED versions, reducing light-related greenhouse gas emissions by 80%.
  • Rainwater is harvested and diverted into our bathrooms to use when flushing toilets. With almost 250 members of staff on-site, this greatly reduces our water consumption and demand on local resources.
  • We have further reduced our water consumption by installing ecocaps in urinals. These innovative devices hold an enzyme that breaks down the liquid and negates the need for the cisterns to be flushed more than three times a day.
  • Our on-site biomass boiler is fed with wood waste, which it burns and turns into energy that heats our factory. This method is far more sustainable than using fossil fuels, and helps reduce the waste that we send to landfill.
  • We operate condensed working hours from Monday to Thursday, saving staff commuting money and reducing their carbon emissions. For three days each week, we do not need to turn on machinery, lights, heating or use water, therefore reducing our organisational carbon footprint too.
  • Electric vehicle usage is championed, with a salary sacrifice scheme available to staff members who wish to use it. Electric vehicle charging points have been installed at the factory to make charging more convenient for both staff and visitors.

Our commitment to working as sustainably as possible means that we are constantly monitoring and evaluating our environmental impact. A culture of accountability ensures that our efforts remain effective and we continue to look for new ways to improve.
