We strive to undertake the production process of our products and delivery of our service, in an environmentally friendly, and sustainable way. We will continue to research and employ new techniques, working practices and technology in order to continuously improve our environmental impact.
Acrastyle Limited is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.
The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:
- Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
- Minimise toxic emissions through continued monitoring of and evaluation of our own power requirements.
- Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers.
- Source and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution.
- Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to the Company.
Whilst continuously improving our own environmental impact, Acrastyle Limited has implemented and continues to develop new ways to improve our carbon footprint. Including, but not limited to;
We have introduced the internal use of tablets, ensuring that team members have access to information, at the physical point of need, without requiring paper-print outs. By reducing the number of print-outs required, we have reduced our use of paper products, and our power consumption, as well as reducing overall wastage.
We have introduced the software and hardware infrastructure needed to automatically shut down devices when not in use, or out of business hours. This has reduced our power consumption and lowered our carbon footprint further.
We have introduced LED lighting across our manufacturing and office spaces, which has provided a better quality of working light for team members. LED consumes 75% less energy on average compared to a standard fluorescent bulb.
We now have processes in place to ensure the re-use of packaging materials across our products. Packaging materials such as cardboard, and polystyrene received on inward bound materials, are now set aside, for re-use on outward bound products.
