This means adapting how we operate, across all Resource companies, to ensure we hit robust sustainability objectives and work with the environment in mind.
Companies across the Resource group take great care to reduce their reliance on non-sustainable materials and strive towards a cleaner, greener way of working.
Several of our company / pool vehicles are hybrids or low-emission vehicles, and our partner companies encourage working from home where possible, to reduce the need for unnecessary car travel.
Alongside this, all Resource companies carefully select suppliers and source local products where possible to avoid high mileage from suppliers.
Where possible, we recycle equipment we no longer need (most recently we donated computers and 3D printers to schools across Wales).
Much of the steel used across our partners in the manufacturing industry is 99% recycled and recyclable, with a low carbon footprint and longer life cycle.
Inside our second business base, The Maltings, we have installed water fountains in every building and co-working space to aid water conservation & cut down on plastic bottles.
We have also recently installed a vacuum toilet system from Jets™ Group in the new toilet block, which uses 90% less water.
In 2019, we installed LED lighting across every acre of Wentloog Corporate Park, implemented in conjunction with Carbon Trust – this reduced our carbon footprint by 26.06 tonnes per year.
Wentloog Corporate Park has its own lake with established trees that were planted for environmental reasons – consequently, an array of local wildlife has thrived there for years.
To reduce our use of paper, we’re transitioning to digital versions of all company brochures with far fewer being printed and have halted unnecessary printing, turning payslips and other paper files digital where possible.
