Sustainability is integral to our core business values and it shapes the way we work across our operations in the UK and how we engage with our global supply chains. We aim to minimise the environmental impact of our products at each stage of their life cycle. We look to deliver innovative and sustainable solutions and services to our customers which promote circular economy principles, aiming for zero non-recovered waste. By recycling our own internal waste in all of our facilities, we also avoid generating landfill.
