At GBUK Healthcare we feel we have an obligation to sustain and protect both the local and wider environment. That’s why we’ve introduced our sustainability programme, established to promote the sharing of best practice across the organisation.
- Increasing water, energy and fuel efficiency
- Reducing emissions, waste and pollution from our warehousing and vehicles
- Reducing packaging
- Increasing recycling rates
Through our ongoing waste management programme we now achieve a recycling rate of around 69%. Our new head office and distribution centre is designed and built to use 22% less energy on heating and lighting.
We are members of a recognised waste packaging compliance scheme, paying a fee for the tonnage of cardboard, plastic and wood that we bring in to the country and distribute. Proceeds from the scheme go to the Environment Agency.
