Environmental responsibility:

99.8% recycled shows how much we care

Our commitment to environmental responsibility is exceptional.

We regard environmental issues to be especially important and we aim to limit the impact that our business has, wherever feasibly possible for future generations.

SUSTAINABLITY

We are dedicated to operating in a sustainable manner, achieving our business objectives, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs. A key aspect of sustainability is for all organisations, including ESP, is not to consume natural resources and produce waste/pollutants at a level that will have a significant effect on the environment.

ISO & FSC®

ISO14001 accredited we have complete control over the waste we generate and it’s recycled.

We’re also FSC Certified, meaning we can trace the chain of custody of the paper we use and ensure only pulp from managed forests is used in its manufacture. The FSC also states that its certified forests are renewed by fresh planting.

We recycle 100% of all our consumable material waste.

How we do it:

Paper

All our paper is either delivered to the customer or recycled into pulp for conversion into low-grade paper

INK

Any waste ink or varnish is recycled and converted into an ignition fuel for blast furnaces

CARDBOARD

All is recycled into low-grade paper

PLASTIC WRAPPING

All is recycled into low grade plastic e.g. for the production of drain pipes

PLATES

All our metal plates are smelted down and reused for the production of car bodies

BLANKETS

These rubber blankets are shredded and converted into the surface of children’s playgrounds

CONSUMABLES

We use very few chemicals, but those we do use are purified into water

PALLETS

We re-use all the pallets we can ourselves, those we cannot, are repaired for re-use. The remainder are chipped and sold as heater fuel.
