ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY AIMS

Our general objectives as a
company are to:



Bullet point Comply with all legal regulations, and exceed the minimum standards where possible.

Bullet point Keep the day to day running of the company as "green" as possible, helping our administrators and craftsmen to keep the environmental impact of their work in mind.

Bullet point Involve staff in the implementation of this policy, always keeping them abreast of changes and alterations.

Bullet point Regularly research, and try to utilise, new methods of conducting a more environmentally friendly business.

Bullet point Consider and evaluate the environmental impact of all our entrepreneurial decisions.

Bullet point Continually review the policy, so as to stay as environmentally friendly as we can be. At least annually, somebody will completely revise the policy to incorporate any more up to date information.

Paper and Office Supplies


Bullet point We minimise the use of paper in the office through high use of electronic storage, disks, memory sticks etc.

Bullet point We recycle all appropriate material to cut down the amount of rubbish we produce.

Bullet point We reduce packaging as much as possible, using re-usable protective furniture blanket wraps to transit package for shipping Solid Surfaces.

Bullet point We evaluate whether the need for any office supplies can be met in another way, only ordering when stocks of completely necessary products are low.

Bullet point We evaluate if renting/sharing is an option before purchasing equipment of any kind.

ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY AIMS

Bullet point We seek to buy more environmentally friendly and efficient products, often checking if there are equivalent "green" versions of our usual purchases. For example; our biggest supplier; Corian has introduced six new colours which contain up to 14 % recycled post-industrial material. We make attempts to use these wherever possible.

Bullet point Envelopes, jiffy bags, and paper of all kinds are reused where possible and recycled where not.

Bullet point Cardboard used in the workshop is always recycled.


Energy and Water


Bullet point We heat the workshop by recycling the heat energy generated by our CNC machine, topped up with one Sealey infra-red cabinet heater.

Bullet point Lights and electrical equipment are switched off when the office closes, and rooms not in use will not be lit up.

Bullet point We do not have central heating in any part of our premises.

Bullet point The energy efficiency and consumption of new products is taken into account when purchasing them, in particular workshop tools.

Bullet point We do not use a dishwasher, saving water and energy by doing all washing by hand.
Bullet point Energy saving light bulbs are used throughout the workshop and office complexes.


Transportation


Bullet point We seek to make use of travel alternatives for the sake of communication- such as e-mails, video calls and group conference calls.

Bullet point We make efforts to accommodate the needs of those using buses, trains, bicycles or any other form of public transport.

Bullet point Where car share schemes are possible we encourage these, making staff aware of their proximity to other staff.

Bullet point We make every effort to combine installs, collections and deliveries into single trips in order to minimise the environmental impact of our commercial vehicles.

Bullet point Continually use the same cleaning fluids, so the bacteria in the plant will work more effectively.

Bullet point Tend towards the usage of liquid cleaners rather than powders.

Bullet point Do not put any of the following substances down the toilet: sanitary towels, medicines, mouthwash, tampons, baby wipes, disposable nappies, cooking oils, fat, garden chemicals or engine oil.

Bullet point Materials used in the office refurbishment are as environmentally friendly as possible. For Example: in the construction of our showroom, every effort is and will be made to use off-cuts and sheets of Solid Surface that we already have.
