At FPL Signs, sustainability is at the heart of our operations. We've established a comprehensive Sustainability Programme, reflecting our deep commitment to the environment and future generations. Through initiatives like transitioning to electric vehicles, harnessing solar energy, and implementing an ISO14001:2015 certified Environmental Management System, we're actively reducing our carbon footprint. Our dedication extends to the materials we use, from 100% recyclable paper to sustainable inks, ensuring that our signage solutions not only meet the highest standards of quality but also respect our planet
FPL Signs is dedicated to moving forward in regards to Sustainability and Environmental Management
As a company FPL Signs are strong believers that industry must focus on being more sympathetic to our world and the resourses that are available. We actively take measures to enhance our environmental friendliness and promote sustainability. Our focus includes reducing carbon emissions through reusable energy, minimising waste and prioritising responsible sourcing.
We have implemented and maintained our Environmental Management System
which is certified to ISO14001:2015 (UKAS certified) and underpins our dedication to minimising our impact on the environment
At FPL Signs we are dedicated to using Water-based HP Latex Inks in our production, these offer health and environmental advantages - compared to eco-solvent, solvent, or UV-curable inks - from the work zone to the point-of-display of finished prints and recycling of consumables. HP Latex inks are ECOLOGO and GREENGUARD GOLD certified.
HP LATEX INKS
As of June 2023, a significant portion of our power consumption at FPL Signs is met through self-generated solar energy. FPL Signs have harnessed the full potential of the warehouse roofs by installing solar panels. This investment in solar power reduces our reliance on traditional power grids, thereby reducing our carbon footprint.
OFFICE & BUILDING
We have recently made significant updates to our office and warehouse facilities. At our Group HQ, we have installed energy-efficient LED lighting with motion-sensing technology. Additionally, we have implemented energy-saving software on all our headquarters' computers to minimize electric wastage and optimise power usage.
As of June 2023, our company vehicles within the group have been transitioned to fully electric vehicles. We are continuously working towards replacing additional vehicles with electric alternatives in the coming months, as part of our ongoing efforts to reduce emissions and promote cleaner mobility options.
Where possible we now re-use packaging from our own suppliers.
This may mean as a customer you may notice a difference in appearance but be reassured it is a step towards our sustainability goals and your products and deliveries will still be securely packaged.
All paper that we use is EU Ecolabel (PT/011/002) which is 100% recyclable and supplied from responsible sources (FSCC008924)
All cardboard packaging that we use is fully recyclable and usage of packing materials is kept to an absolute minimum
Recycling within the warehouses has been in place for some time but now Recycling is encouraged within office spaces in addition to the warehouse recycling facilities
