In a continued bid to reduce its environmental impact, Triton Showers has reportedly made some significant savings in the last 12 months, while setting a series of ambitious goals for the future.
According to the company, Triton began a concerted sustainability effort back in 2015, when it exceeded its own objective of zero waste to landfill, two years before its target. Since then, the company’s aspirations continue to grow, with a series of technology purchases.
Investment in a new shrink wrap process is said to of resulted in a 3,180kg reduction in plastic per year, while the introduction of LED lighting throughout the company will see a reduction in carbon of 178 tonnes and a further 12.5% by the end of 2020. Furthermore, the company has gone on to reduce its gas consumption by 32% and water consumption by 31%.
Office staff have also helped to achieve further savings through the introduction of a paperless desk policy as well as a series of new processes which have seen a 28.5% reduction in paper waste.
Commenting on the company’s sustainability strategy and progress to date, Dave Tutton, said: “As a responsible British manufacturer, the business has set itself a series of bold sustainability objectives – we have a duty of care to make sure we leave a minimum impact on the environment. From the manufacture of products which are fully recyclable, to minimising the creation of waste at the point of production and through the entire lifecycle, we are making progress but there is still some way to go.”
“Looking ahead, we will continue to increase our goal for the reduction in packaging waste. By 2020 for instance, three of our major suppliers have been tasked with using returnable packaging, two of which have already complied.”
With manufacturers across the world under scrutiny for their environmental impact and waste levels, Triton Showers is firmly highlighting its commitment to operating in a sustainable way in the future.
