This commitment extends to our suppliers and products too. We are especially interested in, and excited by, the market for environmentally sensitive technologies, and carbon neutral products.
We have identified a number of pioneering companies abroad that are at the forefront of the green wave, and we are already working with them on developing revolutionary new lines, approaches and offerings.
There are a number of criteria we use when appraising potential new suppliers.
Obviously not all suppliers will be able tick all the boxes, but these are the lines of investigation pursued:
- Recycling / making recyclable products
- Energy consumption
- Making use of renewable energy
- Waste emissions
- Waste water / materials disposal methods
- Use of eco-friendly materials during manufacture
- Carbon footprint of transport vehicles
- Alternate cooling methods
