OUR COMMITMENT TO SUSTAINABILITY
At ACTIVE we are not only committed to 100% compliance with all environmental regulations governing the conduct of our business, we are pro-active in our quest for continual improvement to operate in more environmentally friendly ways.
Sustainability Focus Areas:
Energy efficient manufacturing
Recycling of manufacturing waste and by-products
Management of plant discharges to the sewer and the atmosphere
The suggestion and use of recyclable materials in production
Adopting manufacturing methods more readily permitting recycling at end-of-life
Quotation estimates to reclaim recyclable materials in goods no longer required
ACTIVE recieved POPAI's 2017 ENVIRONMENTAL STEWARDSHIP Award for our Myer A/W New Season Visual Merchandising. READ MORE ABOUT THIS ACTIVATION
Energy reduction initiatives:
LIGHTING: Use of energy efficient MV lighting in all manufacturing facilities
POWER SAVING: Energy waste minimalisation through automatic shut-down of non-essential power out of business hours (at main switchboards)
RECYCLING: All waste paper, plastic & metal products are collected and recycled
COMPLIANCE: All manufacturing plants hold current 'Trade Waste' agreements with local Water Authorities.
Designing for sustainability:
Where performance constraints permit, we will adopt mechanical fixing methods to join the various parts rather than adhesives.
Mechanical joins permit the dismantling of uncontaminated components at end-of-life to permit effective re-use and recycling.
Where possible, use redressible store fixtures. E.g. Wall prints - redressable frames
