FutureSure is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.
We pledge that we will comply with all relevant environmental legislation, regulations, and government guidance.
FutureSure accepts responsibility for the harmful effects its operations have on both the local and global environment and is committed to reducing them.
We will implement a training program for our staff to raise awareness of environmental issues and enlist their support in improving the Company’s performance.
FutureSure evidences our commitment to the environment with our robust and detailed measuring of raw material use, transport use, power and water use, waste produced including the use of ink and paper and ultimately the company’s overall impact on the environment and set targets for ongoing improvement.
The key points of our strategy to achieve this are:
- Minimise waste by evaluating operations, ensuring they are as efficient as possible.
- Minimise toxic emissions through the selection and use of its vehicles and the source of its power requirement.
- 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.
- Use an accredited program to offset the greenhouse gas emissions generated by our activities.
FutureSure pledges to off-set our environmental impact through a number of environmental positive endeavours such as:
- Tree planting to off-set our carbon footprint
- Charity work and contribution to environmental charities
- Environmental considerations such as hedgehog and insect shelters on site etc.
