Continuous Environmental Investment
De La Rue understands the impact that its activities, products and services can have on the environment. All of our manufacturing sites have achieved ISO14001 accreditation for their environmental management systems. We do our best to reduce any negatives and increase the positives by:
- Tracking key environmental KPIs on a monthly basis (waste, energy, water usage).
- This data is also confirmed at each financial year-end where sites complete an environmental questionnaire to create an overall environmental summary. Subscribing to the Carbon Disclosure Project
We are working towards achieving a robust integrated approach to environmental sourcing.
Accreditations across the Group: ISO14001:2015 Certificate for all manufacturing sites
Examples of some of our recent environmental achievements are:
- We have reduced our waste going to landfill by better segregation of the waste types and improved recycling.
- The introduction of an energy monitoring programme to reduce energy consumption and cost per tonne of good output tracking.
