Reduce – Reuse – Recycle
The Fellowes’ European Head Office situated in Doncaster, is certified as compliant with ISO 14001: Environmental Management, which is audited annually.
Currently over 90% of all waste at this location is recycled, therefore greatly reducing the amount of waste that goes to landfill. This waste is managed through larger points of recycling for such things as industrial packaging, etc. down to much smaller recycling points, placed throughout the building for employees to use.
Our European Head Office also features led lighting sensors throughout the office and warehouse to ensure that lighting is only on when required.
Pallet Optimisation Project
With the goal of reducing our impact on the environment, our specialist warehouse team are reviewing current packing and stacking configurations to ensure that we are utilising all available space on pallets. A higher quantity of product on a pallet will reduce the amount of pallets that need to be transported. In additions, were possible we double stack pallets on trailers to maximise the use of the space available.
