Sustainability Processes

Environmental  

  • Our main focus is waste management and saving energy. Our office is situated beside the biggest recycling centre in the town. All waste materials are inspected on a daily basis and the majority of this waste is reused and recycled when possible.

  • We mindfully reduce our energy bills by adopting smarter energy practices where possible, plugging out laptops, turning off lights and reusing old laptops not buying new ones.  We are a fully electrical operation, we do not use a heating system.

  • We print double sided to save paper and recycle the printer toner cartridges. Our Warehouse has energy efficient light bulbs installed.

  • Currently we use DPD delivery services who have just recently hit 1 million sustainable deliveries and invested 2 million into decarbonizing it’s Irish fleet, procuring 100 additional electric vehicles by the end of the year.

  • For external printing we work with Digital Print Ireland who only use paper, which comes from environmentally and responsibly managed forests. They ensure that for every tree used, another is planted.

Social

  • We promote inclusivity and offer equal opportunity, develop potential and attract the very best talent. 60% of our employees in our affiliated companies are women and our finance team are mindful of The Gender Pay Gap Information Act 2021 set out by The Irish Government. 

  • We hold our suppliers to our own ESG standards and operate an ethical supply chain.

  • We are GDPR compliant and committed to our data and security privacy policy outlined on our website.
