Waste

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

 Our business recycles approximately 90% of all waste across its manufacturing, warehouse, technical and office sites. Since 2014 our total business landfill intensity has also improved by 20%.

We support Zero Waste to Landfill initiatives. In 2019/2020 our focus is on auditing our sites to understand where we can make improvements, and then educating our workforce on how to implement improvements.

We strive to reduce waste to landfill by setting targets and regularly monitoring performance. As with our other key environmental metrics, our waste target is based on tonnage of landfill for every kilolitre of production.
