As a responsible major leading supplier of contract soft furnishings around the world, we take our duty to understand the potential impact of our activities very seriously.
Our duty of care starts with the health and safety of those that we work with (suppliers, employees and customers), it stretches to the locations of our activities and further to the spaces that our products travel to and from.
We take care to work with our customers to aid the specification of products that will help in reducing waste, energy and pollution.
Our aim is to be a zero plastics operations. Currently we have reduced incoming supply chain of plastic packaging or products by 90% and our outgoing processes by 95%.
Our energy usage in the factory is supplemented by upwards of 45% solar generated and reduction in electricity and fuel is driven by use of LED lighting and conversion to PHEV vehicles in the fleet.
All surplus materials and fabrics are upcycled through local network of schools, colleges and craft groups.
Local Charities benefitting with our integral participation are The Salvation Army and Candlelighters. Our work with International Charities is through Orphans In Need.
Environmentally, our management systems are based on ISO 14001 (International standard for implementing environmental management systems). We are currently working towards ISO 14001 accreditation which we hope to achieve in the very near future.
As a Family, Team and Business, everybody at Robena has a social and moral responsibility to see how we can improve our Products, Processes, People, Energy and Water Usage. In everything we do our aim is to “Leave it better than you found it”.
