TAKING SUSTAINABILITY AND ENERGY EFFICIENCY SERIOUSLY

23rd April 2019

One of the main benefits of Sontay’s products is the contribution they make to the energy efficiency of buildings. Sensing devices and control solutions help improve building management system performance, reduce energy and maintenance costs and increase occupant comfort levels.

However, it is not just about our products. It’s about the impact we have on the environment and how we can support a sustainable planet.

We are committed to reducing the impact Sontay has on the planet by preventing pollution and defending the natural environment from degradation arising from the company’s activities as well as through our products and services. As such, we have been awarded ISO 14001 Environmental Management System certification for our commitment.

We are also taking other steps. For instance, we have managed to reduce our total waste from 20 tonnes to just under 14 tonnes in the last two years. So far this year we have recycled 75% of our total waste! We are now reusing as much packaging as possible to reduce wastage. The packing team has also reduced the size of our packaging going out to customers, ensuring that shipments are packed in the most efficient way. In our head office building, we have switched all of the lighting to LED, along with cutting down on paper use and printing. Our customers are supporting our aims and now 60% of them receive all information electronically.

Throughout the business, Sontay is thinking about how it can reduce its impact on the environment and making changes to the way it operates.

Take a look at our mission statement to find out how we are tackling issues around energy efficiency and sustainability as well as understanding the impacts buildings have on our health and wellbeing: https://www.sontay.com/en-gb/about-us/news/2019/04/03/sontay-mission-statement/
