Carbon Footprint

Green

We care about our environment and therefore believe that a few changes in the way we do things can assist in making a difference to our environment.

Electricity

Every kilowatt-hour (kW/h) we save on electricity saves over a kilogram of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere. We have installed specialised sensor lighting systems at our premises that ultimately save thousands of kilowatts of electricity and hence reduces CO2 emissions into the air thus reducing our carbon footprint considerably.

Recycling

Our company’s intake of cardboard boxes is huge. Therefore, we have a rigorous recycling programme in place which allows us to recycle tons of cardboard which ultimately lightens the burden on the environment in a big way.

Soft chemicals

Hygiene is vital to our business. To keep our premises in tip-top condition we have to use cleaning chemicals that will keep bacteria at bay as well as squeaky clean. Our chemicals are environment-friendly and therefore gentle on the environment.

Logistics and vehicle management

Our outbound logistics planning system requires careful planning and expediting of customer orders. In this way, unnecessary driving is omitted to reduce the carbon monoxide emission into the atmosphere. Our drivers are made aware of how better driving habits can contribute to a reduction of tons of CO2 emissions into the atmosphere per year. These include:

  • Accelerating slowly and smoothly
  • Driving the speed limit
  • Maintaining a steady speed
  • Anticipating stops and starts

A maintenance plan keeps our fleet in healthy conditions minimising the negative impact of our vehicles on the road
