How Sandhurst Autoprint is pushing forwards in sustainability
Sustainability and Sandhurst Autoprint
At Sandhurst Autoprint, we have established a Sustainability Programme that underpins our commitment to protecting the environment. We actively take measures to enhance our environmental friendliness and promote sustainability. Our focus includes reducing carbon emissions through reusable energy, minimising waste and prioritising responsible sourcing.
We have implemented and maintained our Environmental Management System which is certified to ISO14001:2015 (UKAS certified) and is managed by our Sustainability Officer who ensures that environmental considerations are integrated into our operations and decision-making processes.
WE AIM TO...
Achieve NET ZERO by the year 2050
As of June 2023, a significant portion of our power consumption at Sandhurst Autoprint is met through self-generated solar energy. The SAP group of companies has harnessed the full potential of the warehouse roofs by installing solar panels. This investment in solar power reduces our reliance on traditional power grids, thereby reducing our carbon footprint.
As of June 2023, over 50% of our company vehicles at Sandhurst Autoprint have been transitioned to fully electric vehicles. We are continuously working towards replacing additional vehicles with electric alternatives in the coming months, as part of our ongoing efforts to reduce emissions and promote cleaner mobility options.
In line with our sustainability goals, Sandhurst Autoprint has installed energy-efficient LED lighting with automated motion sensors in our offices and warehouses. This technology activates lights only when rooms are in use, reducing energy waste and contributing to our aim of achieving NET ZERO by 2050. Overseen by our Sustainability Officer, this upgrade is part of our ISO14001:2015 certified Environmental Management System
OFFFICES AND WAREHOUSE
We are proud to announce that two sites within the Sandhurst Autoprint Group have onsite allotments growing a variety of fruits and vegetables and also creating a delightful sanctuary for local wildlife. Additionally, these green spaces provide a tranquil environment for our staff, promoting mental well-being and offering a peaceful retreat during their workday.
All paper that we use is EU Ecolabel (PT/011/002) which is 100% recyclable supplied from responsible sources (FSCC008924)
All cardboard packaging that we use is fully recyclable and usage of packing materials is kept to an absolute minimum
Where possible we now re-use packaging from our own suppliers. This may mean as a customer you may notice a difference in appearance but be reassured it is a step towards our sustainability goals and your products and deliveries will still be securely packaged.
Recycling within the warehouses has been in place for some time but now Recycling is encouraged within office spaces in addition to the warehouse recycling facilities.
