Reducing waste: at the start of 2019, only 1%of all DWT waste went to landfill.
Reducing fossil fuel use: by utilising natural resources and renewable energy to serve our buildings wherever possible.
Our headquarters at Cricklepit Mill uses the old mill leat to power a hydro-turbine which provides us with electricity and allows us to export any surplus to the National Grid. In 2015 the turbine provided up to one third of our energy needs.
Reducing water use: we harvest water for flushing toilets which reduces the need for treated and pumped water.
Procurement: since 2015 we have used a procurement policy which ensures we select products which are not associated with any global environmental issues such as Palm Oil, Sustainable Fishing and Deforestation.
