How we care for the environment
For the last 60 years, Marler Haley’s products have provided sound and sustainable display solutions. Right from the beginning our products have been engineered to be used again and again. Testament to the longevity of our products is the high quantity of Marler Haley equipment still in daily use after 25 years or more.
Even at the end of a long and useful life our products continue to be environmentally sound as they are manufactured using 80% recyclable material.
A Culture of Environmental Awareness and Best Practice
We believe that our continued success is due to our great people and our strong culture. We value the ethical and long-term perspective. This perspective includes the desire to make environmental considerations central to the way Marler Haley does business in the 21st century.
Instead of conforming to a one-off tick-box exercise to prove we're doing the minimum we'd need to say that we care for the environment, we use an environmental roadmap.
Our roadmap ensures we continually review and improve our environmental practices and makes sure we go above and beyond where we need to be as a business.
In 2017, we were awarded with a silver award, noting our progress along the environmental roadmap that we follow along with a number of international businesses.
Here are our ten environmental objectives:
- 1. Management Leadership and Direction
- To protect the environment by establishing goals, and integrating environmental considerations into routine working methods at appropriate levels, providing resources, guidance and accountability for staff
- 2. Environmental Impact and Risk Mitigation
