Environmental & Sustainability

Introduction
The New Fat Design Limited is a women run business, operating from 6 Poplars Court, Lenton Lane. Our main aim is to create, evolve and grow brand identities. Covering everything a business needs from corporate literature, advertising, packaging, exhibition stands to websites. We recognise that in producing these materials we add to the emission in air and water and the generation of waste. It is our aim to reduce the environmental impacts of our business and operate in an environmentally responsible manner. This policy describes how we will achieve our aim.

Responsibility
This environmental policy applies to all of our operations including management, office services, printing, delivery and procurement. Debbie Mawhinney, Director is responsible for ensuring that the policy is implemented. However, all employees have a responsibility in their area to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met.

Objectives
During 2017, we aim to:

Continue to record the amount of energy used within the premises the for heat, light and power with the aim to reducing where possible in 2018.

Continue to monitor and reduce where possible the amount of waste sent to landfill.

Continue to reduce the amount of paper used, adopting a think before you print policy. Where printing is necessary printing double sided.

Continue to assess and utilise suppliers of print (where possible) and other related services which can demonstrate an environmental policy and supply of sustainable or recycled raw materials such as paper and ink.

Get involved with National and Local charity events, building team spirit and fundraising.

Give some experience back into the industry by offering work experience placements to students and graduates.

Help companies which are smaller than us (sole traders) by paying on quicker terms.

 

Targets
To achieve our aims, we have set ourselves the following targets:

Ensure employees receive training in good housekeeping and understand this policy.

Offer 2 – 4 work experience places in 2017 for 14 – 16 year olds
