Environment & Sustainability
At OBEX Protection Ltd we understand the importance of playing our part to protect the environment. We have implemented a number of measures to ensure that we are reducing our environmental impact and promoting sustainability.
We’ve recently implemented a plastic baling and recycling initiative. Plastic is a major contributor to environmental pollution and that’s why we’ve made it a priority to recycle as much plastic as possible. We’re constantly looking for ways to reduce plastic waste, and ensure that it’s recycled in an environmentally-friendly manner.
We also bale and recycle all of our waste cardboard, which significantly reduces the amount of waste going to landfill, thereby promoting sustainability.
Our commitment to recycling extends to the empty 200 litre metal drums. We’ve invested in a compactor that crushes the drums which are then sent for recycling. The offcuts from the tape and film rewinding process, as well as cardboard cores from bespoke manufacturing, are also all recycled.
There are many other products for which we have implemented a recycling programme, including our waste wood, used batteries and aerosol cans.
OBEX Protection Ltd is committed to protecting the planet and will continue to implement measures to reduce its environmental impact.
ISO 14001 Certification
ISO 14001 stands as the globally acknowledged benchmark for environmental management systems (EMS). It offers a structure that enables organizations to create, execute, and consistently enhance their environmental practices. At OBEX, we are proactive in our efforts to reduce our impact on the environment, ensuring compliance with applicable legal regulations. Our possession of the ISO 14001 certification serves as a clear indication of our unwavering dedication to accomplishing these environmental goals.
What is ISO 14001?
ISO 14001 presents a methodical approach for businesses to tackle pressing global environmental issues. When organizations adopt this standard, they demonstrate their commitment not only to adhering to regulations but also to continuous environmental enhancement. This proactive environmental management approach can yield tangible benefits, including reduced waste, energy preservation, and financial savings.
How Does ISO 14001 Benefit OBEX’s Customers?
ISO 14001 enhances an organization’s reputation, fosters stakeholder trust, and frequently fulfils an essential requirement for participation in global trade and supply networks. In essence, ISO 14001 serves as proof of an organization’s commitment to a sustainable future, harmonizing environmental responsibility with strategic business growth.
