Crowbond Environmental & Sustainability Policy
Crowbond recognises that its legal and moral responsibility to the environment and sustainability of the world’s resources.
We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment and are continually improving our performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods.
The Directors are responsible for reviewing, improving and providing the resources required to implement this policy.
Day to day responsibility for the implementation of the policy is delegated to the Senior Management Team which includes the Manager, General Manager and Technical Manager.
All employees have a responsibility to ensure that the aims and objectives of the policy are met as part of their everyday duties.
We aim to:
- Comply with all regulatory requirements
- Continually improve and monitor environmental performance
- Continually improve and reduce our environmental impact
- Increase employee awareness of environmental issues relating to our business
We source our products from environmentally responsible suppliers and aim to reduce our overall carbon footprint through our supply chain.
We recycle all eligible waste products and encourage our customers to recycle where possible.
In order to reduce food waste, we donate products with a short shelf-life to City Harvest located at New Spitalfields Market so that this can be distributed to local charities.
We are committed to reducing our energy consumption by using energy-efficient appliances and turning off all electronics when not in use.
We are replacing all the florescent lighting throughout the premises with low energy LED lighting and have also installed motion sensors to reduce the need for lighting in lower traffic areas.
Located within New Spitalfields Market means that we can hand select fresh fruit and vegetables every night so that they are fresh for you when we deliver the next morning. This also means that we start reducing food miles as soon as we receive your order.
All delivery routes are planned to reduce the miles travelled and the engines on vans are turned off to reduce the emissions.
We aim to be a responsible company who takes a leading role in preserving our planet for future generations.
