Due to the "green" nature of our product, we are keen to keep to all our operations as green as possible. As a consequence of this, we now e-mail many of our quotes rather than posting them, recycle all of our paper waste in our offices and collect and recycle as much of our raw material as possible within the factory.
In April 2011, we asked the firm who handles our recycling to compile information on how much timber and other materials (including our EPS) were recycled at our SIPs Eco Panel factory. They told us that during that month, we had sent them nearly 8 tonnes of wood (of which 100% was recycled) and 4 and a half tonnes of mixed waste (of which 75% was recycled). The reason for these large numbers is due to the fact that we are producing a high volume of structural insulated panels, and that we have special extraction machinery in place to collect all scraps of waste.
We are proud of our green credentials and both our office and factory managers are constantly looking for ways to further minimise our impact on the environment.
