Reducing our impact on the environment

One of our key sustainability priorities is to minimise the water use of our operations. At Sidcup, we recently conducted trials to find out how we could make the plant more water-efficient.

We discovered that the amount of time being spent washing our production lines and equipment was unnecessary, and that by cleaning for a shorter amount of time we could still maintain the same high levels of cleanliness, but by using much less water and energy.

We have now made these changes across all of our tanks, and as a result we saved 12 million litres of water and 1,300 hours of pumping time per year. We have reduced our wastewater by 50%.
