Putting the planet first
As a responsible business Rapid is committed to reducing the impact the business has on the environment, trading in a more sustainable way and limiting the amount of waste it produces. We comply fully with the RoHS, WEEE and REACH regulations and actively engage with our suppliers and customers in keeping them informed of the latest developments.
We continually monitor the payment and delivery terms of our customer accounts, so that our vehicles spend less time delivering low value orders. All suitable boxes are re-used in packaging, while waste cardboard and paper are stored separately from general waste and taken to local recycling depots. The paper that we use in our packaging processes is produced from 100% recycled, biodegradable neutral ph paper. Each office area has a recycle sack for all clean used paper and mailers. We post emails or information on announcement boards to conserve paper and use ceramic mugs for tea and coffee rather than the plastic disposable type. We use scrap paper for notes and re-use large envelopes, boxes and packaging materials.
As in every company and household, there will always be a certain amount of material that has to be classed as general waste, but at Rapid we use authorised waste management companies to ensure that general waste is disposed of efficiently. We are continually striving to embrace new and innovative methods to further protect the environment and put the planet first.
