Our key environmental parameters are presented here and in our annual report. Where relevant, we apply the Global Reporting Initiative (GRI) Sustainability Reporting Guidelines. Since 2008 we have also participated in the Carbon Disclosure Project, an international, not-for-profit organisation which provides a global system for companies and cities to measure, disclose, manage and share vital environmental information.
We continue to refine our environmental reporting with the intention to continuously monitor and improve our sustainability and impact on the environment.
We regularly assess the environmental impact of our business to ensure that we take advantage of opportunities to improve our performance and efficiency and to help manage finite resources. All facilities exclusively occupied by BTG with more than 20 employees are committed to implementing two eco-efficiency projects per year.
We recycle paper, cardboard, plastic and metal at each of our sites and encourage the use of local materials, suppliers and contractors wherever possible and cost effective. We measure waste produced from all of our production sites.
We operate an international supply chain for the manufacture of our products and where possible we transport in bulk using the most efficient transportation in order to save money and reduce our carbon emissions.
We monitor electricity and gas consumption at manufacturing sites and offices which employ more than 20 people, and we try to reduce our carbon emissions and increase energy efficiency wherever possible.
Our intent is to comply with all requirements of local legislation and to provide a minimum standard by which all sites will operate in the absence of local legislation. To do this, we have developed 20 Environment Health and Safety (EHS) standards that we monitor and manage on a continual basis using our EHS management system. The full list of EHS management standards are:
Sites are audited on an annual basis by the corporate EHS/Risk team until a number of conditions are met to satisfy each standard. When the standards are achieved the site is audited every three years unless significant adverse data is reported, in which case the site is re-audited as soon as possible. Each audit is accompanied by an improvement plan which the site must implement before the next audit. Sites report their EHS results to the Leadership Team on a monthly basis.
