With a strong tradition of maximising efficiency and minimising environmental impact, Velden goes beyond compliance and actively works to improve our environmental performance in all activities.

Between 2012 and 2014 we reduced our carbon footprint by 39 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e). This was an 8% reduction in emissions during a time of an overall increase in production. Enworks Report

 

Reduction in carbon footprint achieved by:

 

50Kw Solar Panel Installation

Factory LED Intelligent Lighting

Used Coolant Treatment, Oil Separation & Recycling

Collection & Separation Of Swarf & Off-Cut Metals For Recycling

In an effort to continually improve environmental performance, Velden cultivate an environmentally-friendly attitude amongst employees by encouraging them to follow the waste hierarchy of “reduce, re-use, recycle”.  Other initiative include:

Minimising printing wherever possible and using FSC approved paper
Using recycling bins in offices to maximise recycling opportunities.
Ensuring 99% of waste collection is diverted from landfill.
