Waste is an inevitable part of any manufacturing process, but there are ways to ensure it doesn’t become an environmental headache. For example, at Venesta, we’ve set ourselves the challenge of reducing waste in all areas, not only in manufacturing but also in our administration processes.

Managing our energy.

Eliminating landfill.

The cost of energy and the issue of carbon emissions are high on our environmental agenda and we’re continually searching for ways to reduce energy consumption across all of our facilities. This year, we have achieved our objective of zero waste by investing £1 million pounds in to a state of the art biomass burner, which generates of our waste into fuel for our manufacturing site.  This means we’ve been able to replace our conventional gas-fired heating systems, significantly reducing our heating usage and carbon emissions.

Reducing our travel.

Decreasing carbon emissions.

As part of our ongoing commitment to improving our carbon footprint, we’ve undertaken to reduce employees’ travelling time. All staff are encouraged to use public transport wherever possible and we’ve installed video conferencing facilities on all of our sites to allow meetings to be held without the need for travel.

Modern Slavery & Human Trafficking.

Policy Statement.

Venesta Ltd remains committed to driving out acts of modern day slavery and human trafficking within its business, and from within its supply chain. The Company acknowledges responsibility to the Modern Slavery Act 2015. 

The company considers slavery and human trafficking as part of the company supplier approved process. Imported goods from sources outside of the UK and EU are potentially more at risk for slavery and human trafficking issues. Although a minority of the company’s supplies are from outside of the UK and EU, the level of management controls over these suppliers are closely monitored.

The company will not support or deal with any business knowingly involved in slavery or human trafficking. 

The company Directors have been assigned the responsibility for implementing this policy statement and its objectives, and will provide adequate resources, training and investment to ensure that slavery and human trafficking is not taking place within the company or within its supply chains. 

This policy is reviewed annually by the Directors to ensure its continuing suitability, and at other times, following any changes to the Company organisational structure, business activities or procedures. 

This policy is available to interested parties, including the general public via the company’s website.
