A few years ago, we took the step to change from caged eggs to cage free eggs. It took one phone call........if only it was that easy to minimise our carbon footprint.
Changing a few bits of packaging and some light globes doesn't cut the mustard, we have to instigate wholesale systematic change. As a business we are about to experience massive change moving from our current site to a state of the art purpose built facility which represents a fantastic opportunity for us to up our game when it comes to reducing our carbon footprint.
If we succeed in this process, we hope to influence our customers, our suppliers, our staff and our competitors. Cleaning up the way we do business should be bi/tri/quad-partisan.
It's a sad reality that money talks, so if the changes we instigate are cost neutral or even income generating then hopefully our competitors will get on board. And that's fine with us 'cos we're all in this together!
