We want to offer unbeatable, class leading supply chain and manufacturing services and as we do so, we can be passionate about reducing our impact on the environment.
Our whole business ethos is based upon simplified, localised supply chains, reducing waste, both commercially and environmentally. This standard business practice promotes ecological awareness and natural improvements in environmental sustainability through the supply chain.
We also proactively look to reduce our environmental footprint and that of our suppliers. We have sustainable packaging solutions in all our warehouses and productions areas. We use the Pregis easypack machines as they are a compact, user-friendly system that is versatile and highly efficient, allowing us to pack more goods at higher speeds.
There are many benefits to using these machines in our warehouse and production areas such as:
- Using 100% recycled, recyclable and biodegradable paper
- Fast, convenient on-demand packaging
- Simple and comfortable to use
- Controlled paper consumption improves efficiency and reduces wastage
As we pack thousands of parts each day, a sustainable approach to our packaging materials is important to us and the environment. The paper we use to package our items is recycled, recyclable and biodegradable. We also reuse the paper that comes in our own packages to make sure we are making the most of every resource.
We also request that our subcontractors responsibly return any packaging reel, tubes and trays, as well as re-using any paper from our deliveries to Vanilla Electronics. This practice is extended to our ESD packaging, as well as trying to re-use the ESD boxes and reusable bubble wrap bags where possible.
Our Group Environmental Policy Statement highlights our commitment to become a sector leader in Environmental responsibility and compliance. This is not only communicated throughout all our group businesses, but also our staff.
