Westmill’s Environmental Strategy

In September, Westmill launched its new Environmental policy with the goal of further improving the environmental performance of the business.

The day-to-day operations, from energy and water use, to the paper and packaging it purchases, can impact the environment.

Westmill has already carried out a number of energy savings initiatives to improve waste segregation and recycling so that no waste is sent to landfill!

The new and challenging Environmental strategy aims to do more, and bring a greater focus on environmental sustainability and addresses five main areas:

  • Energy and carbon reduction
  • Improved waste management
  • Fuel consumption and efficiencies
  • Promoting environmental awareness amongst colleagues
  • Embedding an Environmental Management system

Westmill believes that everyone in the business can help achieve those targets, whether its ensuring that waste is correctly handled, stored and disposed of; using water efficiently; or sharing suggestions for pollution prevention, waste reduction or energy conservation.
