Reducing the Group’s environmental impact helps to reduce cost and to improve efficiencies and makes us more agile. The Group’s main impacts on the environment are: energy consumption (and associated CO2 emissions), waste generation and recycling, and water consumption.
- All of the Group’s operations develop energy conservation projects, tailored to their main energy consumption, and regularly monitor performance through energy usage
- The Group’s objective is to improve energy efficiency by 10% between 2011 and 2015 and it remains on track to fulfil this goal
- Senior’s Lean programme also continues to help to reduce energy demand by improving the efficiency of how the Group manufactures and streamlines the process to eliminate waste
- Senior Aerospace Weston has achieved its goal of zero landfill – all waste materials are recycled or recovered
Across the Group, 93% of its manufacturing locations are certified to the ISO 14001 environmental management standard and the remainder, all of which are businesses acquired in the last three years, are in the process of obtaining certification.
Senior engages a third party to verify its environmental data each year. Our current verification report can be viewed here.
