At DexGreen, we care. We have extended our focus on sustainability. We are doing this by reducing waste, decreasing our energy and water usage, and limiting our impact on the environment by making more sustainable choices in all areas of the business, from lighting our offices with energy-efficient bulbs to supplying our products with less packaging.
How we are reducing our environmental impact:
Dexgreen’s EMS Is Accredited to ISO14001:2015
ISO 14001 is the international standard that specifies requirements for an effective Environmental Management System (EMS).
There are many benefits to ISO 14001:2015, including improving resource efficiency, waste reduction, assuring that environmental impact is being measured and, improving overall environmental impact.
DexGreen Uses Digital Instructions Where Possible
For the CSP demarcation box alone, approximately 50 pages of installation guides covering all cable types are required. An installation book would usually be included; however by utilising videos and app-based digital documentation, we have significantly reduced our paper usage.
Reduction of Single-Use Plastics
DexGreen is committed to reducing the use of single-use plastics in our packaging. Plastic bags have been removed from our discrete connector range resulting in the removal of 150,000 bags per year.
In other product ranges, we prevent over 13 Tonnes of single-use plastic wastage each year. This is done by replacing the plastic with more environmentally friendly, compostable materials.
Environmental Programs at DexGreen
By increasing recycling at DexGreen headquarters, we have seen a reduction in waste going to landfill. We have implemented initiatives to reduce energy and water usage, and we have reduced air travel by supplementing site visits with alternative methods of communication, such as Teleconferencing.
