Chilli Promotional Products recognises that it has a responsibility to the environment beyond legal and regulatory requirements. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and continually improving our environmental performance as an integral part of our business strategy and operating methods, with regular review points. We will encourage customers, suppliers and other stakeholders to do the same. The key areas we are focusing on are:
Switch suppliers - Chilli Promotional Products seeks to use and promote UK manufacturers and suppliers wherever possible to reduce the carbon footprint of all supplied products. We are also committed to working with a supply chain who is focused on sustainability and as such will actively move away from suppliers who cannot demonstrate this shared commitment.
Pick other products – environmentally friendly / more sustainable alternatives will be provided to customers wherever reasonably possible to ensure that customers can make an informed choice.
Digital focused - Chilli Promotional Products can, and will, provide virtual catalogues and digital marketing solutions to cut paper usage and wastage. We will minimise the use of paper in the office and recycle and reuse paper products such as packaging.
Cut the commute - We support remote and home working for all Chilli Promotional Products staff to reduce unnecessary travel. We will promote the use of travel alternatives such as e-mail or video/phone conferencing. We also actively encourage virtual meetings rather than face to face wherever possible.
Switch on by switching off - Chilli Promotional Products will seek to reduce the amount of energy used as much as possible. Lights and electrical equipment will be switched off when not in use. We will open windows and doors to minimise the use of air conditioning in summer and provide hoodies and blankets to allow us to reduce the heating temperature in winter.
Training and development – We commit to ensuring all staff are fully trained in sustainable practices and how we can maximise this within our business and home lives.
Diverse & secure workplace – we commit to creating a safe and healthy workplace for all involved. We recongnise the importance and value of diversity & equality. Training will be provided to help staff meet their career objectives and we are committed to providing a healthy workplace and supporting our local community.
Growing greener - We will involve staff in the implementation of this policy, for greater commitment and improved performance. This policy will be updated at least once annually in consultation with staff and other stakeholders where necessary. Staff will be provided with relevant environmental training regarding suppliers, products and office processes.
We commit to monitoring and reviewing our environmental performance and taking corrective action where necessary.
