Connolly’s RED MILLS Group, owner of Carr & Day & Martin focuses on sustainable manufacturing practices across all its sites
An important one is how we manage wastewater across our sites and at the Goresbridge factory, the focus has been managing wastewater in harmony with the thriving wildlife nearby, while our wastewater at our Carr & Day & Martin manufacturing site is held and sent for treatment to an approved facility which turns the water into biogas via anaerobic digesters.
This ensures our wastewater is environmentally friendly, and sustainable and is contributing to sources of renewable energy. Furthermore, the site where Carr & Day & Martin is produced is a member of Sedex and has been SMETA audited to ensure we comply with our social, environmental, and sustainability practices.
Moreover, we have long been utilising 100% renewable energy sources across all sites as standard practice, showcasing our commitment to sustainability through carbon footprint reduction, water usage management, and the promotion of sustainable packaging.
Our key staff are trained in sustainability practices and continue to introduce new initiatives in both our offices and factories. We remain dedicated to exceeding our sustainability targets and advancing our vision.Read more on our Group's Practices
Championing Sustainability: Our Clear Roadmap and Progress
As the world becomes increasingly aware of its carbon footprint, consumers are increasingly seeking more eco-friendly packaging without compromising the product and with no additional cost.
However, packaging plays a critical role in the protection and secondly, the marketing of the product, therefore any change is a complex project and a number of areas need to be reviewed including product protection, quality efficacy, market research, and recycling policies.
We are continuously exploring more sustainable packaging options across our entire business, such as the use of biodegradable materials, eliminating single-use plastic in products, introducing more PET/recyclable plastic, and refillable product options.
Our hard work has paid off and we have made significant progress in this area. Carr & Day & Martin has been exemplary in introducing more eco-friendly products and packaging options in the last two years alone, and our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and promoting sustainable practices only continues to grow.Also Explore Our Charity Sponsorship
