A little while ago, we worked with the environmental sustainability specialist, ENWORKS, to examine all aspects of our work, including everything from production operations to office tasks, procurement and logistics.
As a result of that work, we made a series of important changes.
We found new efficiencies in our manufacturing processes, which helped to reduce waste ingredients, water use and energy consumption, and we identified other energy saving opportunities with our lighting and heating systems.
We also found ways to reduce our delivery route mileage, and identified local suppliers in line with our ‘buy local’ policy.
The work was very useful, and helped us to maintain our drive towards continuous improvements and greater sustainability. However, another year has passed so we decided to take another look, this time with the help of the Burnley-based utility management specialist, Energy Finder.
We’re looking forward to an on-site meeting with energy consultant Tony Mercer later this month. It will only be the start of a detailed process, but we hope we’ll be able to identify new ways to reduce our environmental impacts and minimise waste.
