We are committed to empowering our people to contribute to making a positive change for our environment.
Collaborating with our partners and suppliers we are continuously evaluating and identifying ways in which we can minimise our environmental impact and contribute to the sustainability of our planet.
Our waste management practices, sustainable energy use and strategic partnerships are just the beginning of our journey towards a sustainable Prima.
Our commitment to the environment is at the forefront of everything we do here at Prima. We are dedicated to finding new ways to help minimise our environmental footprint and divert as much as we can from landfill.
In partnership with Ricoh our ink cartridges are retained and recycled with over 1.2 tonnes, the equivalent to 3840 cartridges, that are processed and repurposed into recycled materials every year.
We are continuously looking for ways in which we can minimise paper wastage through efficient set up of products specifications, batching rules and waste management. Since January 2019 Prima have diverted over 230 tonnes of paper from landfill. That is the equivalent of 5,520 trees!
Powered by a 100kw on site solar energy farm, Prima has generated over 115,000kw in energy to power our facility and to help minimise the amount of electricity that we consume.
Storm water collected in our water storage tanks is utilised to supply our air conditioning and toilets and we are currently looking to expand its use across other areas of business and are investigating how to make this possible.
Sustainability is something we see as our responsibility, internally we have several ongoing projects that are focused on further reducing our energy and water consumption. We hope to deploy these additional measures in the near future.
