We hold our corporate social responsibility at the heart of our business and instil our values throughout all of our business activities, to ensure we enhance our social and physical environment touched by these business operations.
Bio-mass boiler – We are dedicated to minimising the environmental impacts of our manufacturing activities and seek to explore new ideas through eco innovation, including over £1 million investment in an eco-boiler to convert all waste timber into heat for our factories.
Sustainably source raw materials – All timber used in our manufacturing is sourced locally from from sustainable sources.
FSC® Timber – Wood is a significant material used across many Be Modern products. As demand for forestry products continues to grow, Be Modern plays its part in conservation by selecting over 75% of its raw timber from well-managed FSC® (Forest Stewardship Council®) recognised forests and holds full Forest Stewardship Council chain of custody certification.
Recyclable packaging – We ensure we used minimal plastic in our packaging. We ensure our packaging is made from recyclable cardboard and we have an inhouse cardboard machine, so all boxes are produced to the required size to eliminate excess and unnecessary packaging.
Environmental Management – Having been accredited with ISO 14001, the internationally recognised environmental management standard, Be Modern is committed to continually improving the effectiveness of our environmental management system.
98.85% of waste generated by Be Modern is recycled
1.08% of our waste is used for waste derived fuel
0.07% of our waste goes to landfill
Be Modern has an employee assistance programme, which is available to all employees and immediate family members. This service is completely free and anonymous and implemented by a third party organisation with expert assistance and resources. Taking care of our people is incredibly important to us, as it it the people who make the business.
Be Modern’s logistics department makes thousands of deliveries each year, providing us with an opportunity to reduce the carbon footprint through regularly modernising our fleet to minimise noise and air pollution and training drivers in fuel efficient, safe driving.
