At Cobal Sign Systems Ltd, we are committed to sustainability both within our office and production facilities as well as at every stage of our product life from initial design to recycling.
Our products are designed to be robust and durable without compromising on aesthetic quality. Ensuring that our products maximise their lifecycle minimises the impact on the environment and helps to reduce the demand on landfill. This impact is reduced still further in that well over 95% of the materials that we use are both recycled and recyclable.
Our choice of materials is governed by the principles of “sustainable development” which can be defined as meeting the needs of the present, without compromising the abilities of future generations to meet their own needs.
We understand that technology ensures that the situation is completely dynamic. For example, whilst LED illumination is more expensive at the outset, it saves on energy costs, requires less maintenance, has a reduced carbon footprint and is more easily disposed of than traditional fluorescent tubes.
As an organisation, our environmental policy is to:
- Regularly review and improve the environmental impact of materials used in our products and processes
- Minimise pollution produced in all parts of our business, and aim for pollution-free processes
- Minimise waste by following the priority order of reduce, re-use, recycle, incinerate and landfill
- Implement technologies that use energy resources efficiently
- Use company resources to promote environmental knowledge and awareness to those involved in our business, including employees, customers and our supply chain
- Adopt an environmentally sound transport policy, for example, use public transport wherever possible
- Assist our customers, their advisors and contractors to use our products and services in an environmentally sensitive way
- Expect similar environmental standards to our own from all third parties involved with our business – suppliers, vendors and contractors
