It is increasingly clear as an organisation that the issues of sustainability and minimising our carbon footprint are not just a matter for this business but for all businesses generally.
As a business that manufactures from raw materials it is increasingly important to Pinetec that we adopt an active role in achieving optimal energy use and carbon emission minimisation. Our intent is to always demonstrate leadership toward forest product sustainability.
For our organisation this means that we will adopt a learning mindset in what will make a difference. Achieving a deeper understanding of our impact on greenhouse gas emissions, building our knowledge and raising the awareness of our people will enhance our sustainability and in turn improve our customers carbon footprint.
Improvement in any corporate element demands a starting point. Pinetec has recently appointed independent industry specialists who have conducted a review and audit of our current energy use, waste and other indirect emissions.
The report has concluded that overall the Pinetec business has a "relatively minor environmental impact". These findings will provide us with an excellent platform to initiate programs that further reduce our greenhouse impact.
