At Luminati Waycon Ltd environmental stewardship starts in the workplace but extends far beyond. For us, being green means a respect for our external environment and a total commitment to; eliminating pollution and waste, minimising the use of natural resources, maximising reuse and recycling and working steadily to reduce our carbon footprint.
Together with our employees, customers, suppliers and partners we strive to devise and implement solutions that work for Luminati Waycon and protect the world around us.
Pollution prevention and waste reduction
In our effort to prevent pollution and preserve natural resources, we continue to work towards a reduction in waste generation and the recycling or reuse of waste we cannot eliminate. This includes the implementation of the following:
In 2009 Luminati was one of the first businesses in the country to sign up to a tangible ‘green’ initiative designed specifically for recycling plastic products. Luminati now uses specifically designed one tonne cages and stillages to recycle a variety of plastics materials including acrylic and foam PVC. This innovative system effectively utilises storage space and maximises the efficiency of collections
Acrylics are joined together by using solvents. All solvents are supplied in recyclable glass containers using a deliver and collection scheme
All acrylic products are recyclable and we encourage consumers to recycle responsibly at the end of the product lifecycle
Through investment and new production techniques we are now able to maximise the most product out of a sheet of raw material therefore reducing wastage. This system was introduced early in 2010 and already it is estimated raw material efficiency and the reduction of waste has been improved by 20-25%.
Luminati has introduced and encourages paper free procedures
In the 2009/10 financial year Luminati set itself a target to reduce its energy consumption by 10%. This has been achieved by systematic reviews of energy consumption and together with ideas generated by our employees the following initiatives have been undertaken over the past 12 months.
