No matter what industry we work in, we’re all know how important it is for businesses to be aware of their social and environmental responsibilities.
As a large manufacturer with 5 production facilities across Europe, DURABLE have always exuded a culture of corporate responsibility, long before it became fashionable to do so, in a bid to reduce their carbon footprint and commit to a sustainable future.
What initiatives have DURABLE implemented in recent years?
Low-energy building lighting: At their UK site they have installed low-energy lighting throughout their buildings. This investment in low-energy office lighting has reduced energy consumption and therefore reduced energy costs. Electricity used to power the office lights has dropped from 22,831 to 6,610 KWh/year and so the annual spend on electricity has reduced by over 70%.
Solar Panels: In early 2016, Durable UK installed solar panels. Since then, the solar panels have produced enough electricity to power all electrical needs within the building with enough spare to return to the grid.
Manufacturing site and process improvements: As far back as 2014, 100% of plastic waste that arises during production is internally recycled. DURABLE use the waste from production to create the raw materials for manufacturing another. Waste heat from the production process, compressors and refrigerators, is used for heating the buildings or passed to energy recovery systems.

“Green Office” is not just a trend but a long-term change toward greater sustainability in the workplace. DURABLE now offers a Blue Angel-certified range of office accessories that are made from at least 80 per cent recycled plastic.
