Reducing waste

The generation of waste is a significant environmental issue. Generating waste represents inefficiency, consumes scarce resources, contributes to greenhouse gas emissions and can impact on biodiversity.

Our business recycles approximately 85% of all waste across its manufacturing, warehouse, technical and office sites. We strive to reduce waste to landfill by setting targets and regularly monitoring performance.

There are waste-management programs in place at all sites, focused on the Reduce > Reuse > Recycle hierarchy. Regular waste audits are undertaken to identify and implement opportunities for improvement. All sites have labelled and colour-coded bins, along with education programs for employees and contractors to promote the correct use of bins.
