With increasing concern for the environment, Russel is making a difference.
At Russel we have developed a sustainable, environmental and social policy to demonstrate our commitment to continued improvement.
FSC: We have been accredited suppliers of wood under the Forestry Stewardship Council since 1999. In order to be given FSC certification a forest must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, socially beneficial and economically viable manner. Inspections are undertaken by independent organisations, such as the Soil Association, that are accredited by the FSC.
Sedex: We have been members of Sedex since 2007. Sedex is a social, ethical and environmental database of supply chains giving customers who also are members, visibility to the factories that supply their products. Sedex is both a self-assessment programme and an independent third party assessment programme where ethical factory audits are available to demonstrate how well the factory treats its employees and the environment.
Waste Management: We have a proactive waste management policy including paper, plastic and cardboard recycling. We are Wastepack certified having complied with the ‘Producer Responsibility Obligation (Packaging Waste)’ regulations for the latest year. We also are WEEE certified having complied with the ‘Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment’ regulations for the latest year.
