Environmental Policy

Producing today but not destroying tomorrow

All companies need to take responsibility for their environmental impact, and NIS have pioneered a number of environmental measures to try and help its local environment.

  1. We have set up a recycling scheme with our neighboring companies who dispatch large number of consignments of parcels to reuse our excess boxes and packaging from consignments we receive.

  2. Our batteries (and we use a lot of batteries) are disposed of safely into proper channels, not usual refuse disposal.

  3. All of our waste paper is shredded and used as packing material, not only reducing the waste paper problem but also reducing the use of plastic bubble wrap or polystyrene chips, both problematic for environmental disposal

  4. Our waste oil from petrol plant and hydraulic crimping tools is recycled by a national waste company and is refined for both industrial and domestic usage.

Our official environment policy is as below:

Norwich Instrument Services are committed to continuously improving our environmental performance by setting high objectives.

  • We will encourage our suppliers to follow best environmental practice and assist them where appropriate.
