Slater Harrison believes that effective environmental management enhances business performance and is inseparable from all other business objectives.
We are committed to continually improving our environmental performance across all aspects of the business which interact with the environment and to ensure a safe and secure workplace for our employees.
As an organisation, we are obligated under the Producer Responsibility (Packaging Waste) Regulations 2007 and ensure full compliance with these regulations. We take the management of our waste seriously, sending waste to landfill is a last resort.
Slater Harrisons ‘Centura’ specialist pigment coatings are water based, non-toxic, fully recyclable, and free of any metallic pigments or plastics.
As well as their strong environmental credentials, these coatings provide a unique and innovative alternative to polyester laminates or metallic inks for luxury packaging and graphics and are ideal for converters and end users looking to create a premium finish, while reducing their impact on the environment. They are suitable for all common printing techniques, foil blocking, laminating and embossing.
Responsible Fibre Sourcing
FSC® Chain of Custody Certification ensures that all our paper and paperboard products come from responsibly managed forests and provide environmental, social and economic benefits to the communities.
Slater Harrison is certified for the purchase of FSC Mix and FSC Recycled paper and paperboard, for the conversion to and sale of FSC Mix and FSC recycled board and coated paper via the ‘transfer system’.
Compliance within the FSC® Chain of Custody requirements is a requirement of the business; and, is audited annually.
We take energy conservation and recycling very seriously and have policies in place across our business.
We recently completed a huge undertaking to install LED lighting throughout the business.
Some of our converting machines are equipped with sensors so that we can monitor the consumption of gas and electricity to increase efficiency and reduce waste.
We also have solar panels installed on some of our buildings and plan to increase these in the coming years.
