Ever since the formation of our company, we at Gripple have always appreciated the importance of sustainability. In our Environmental Policy Statement, we’ve pledged to identify any risks, prevent pollution, comply with the relevant legislation and improve our environmental performance overall. Much like our stringent Quality procedures, we have an Environmental Management System in place certified to ISO 14001, and in 2007 we were the proud winners of the EEF Environmental Award.
As a manufacturing plant, we recognise our responsibility to reduce our impact on the planet. Over the last few years, we have managed to maximise our energy efficiency, decrease electricity use, reduce landfill/incinerated waste, increase recycling, conserve our use of raw materials, and minimise our packaging. We continuously strive to integrate sustainability into our design process, which is epitomised by the resounding fact that a Gripple today uses 30% less zinc than the original design, without compromising its strength or functionality.
You can be confident we’ve minimised our environmental impact as far as possible during the design and manufacture of our goods, and we believe our products and their applications can play a fundamental part in you achieving your own suitability objectives.
