How and where has the supplier excelled in our audit?
Governance In the process of building an Environmental Management System which will enable them to identify the areas of greatest impact and constantly improve on these.
Materials Products are designed with durability and longevity in mind followed by reusability and recyclability. Using mechanical fixings instead of welding enables parts to be replaced easily in the unlikely event of damage, prolonging the life of the product. At the end of life, if the product cannot be reused or repurposed it can be easily broken down for recycling.
