We are committed to the prudent use of all natural resources and the minimisation of wastes in all activities from the specification of incoming raw materials, the use of materials in production activities and packaging, and the transmission of materials into the supply chain. Where waste is unavoidably created we will manage its disposal in the most appropriate manner giving full consideration to environmental issues.
Our ultimate aim is to be zero to landfill and to achieve this target we have upgraded our database to collate waste data for all of our Manufacturing and Logistics centres. All of our sites are encouraged to increase reuse, recovery, or recycling of waste.
Reduction in Packaging Materials and Plastics
Historically, pallets of products received have been split for onward delivery which has meant additional packaging being required. We are committed to ensure that all tertiary carton material used for all products should be recycled material/recyclable material or FSC material. The Dechra Service Center (DSC) in Uldum, Denmark will act as a pilot prior to roll out to the Group. We will also commit to reusing all pallets where possible, and any damaged pallets are sold for alternative use.
