Commsworld targets zero waste to landfill

Edinburgh-based Commsworld has secured a new accreditation as it pursues an ambitious sustainability goal, to send zero waste to landfill.

As a result of sweeping green measures throughout the business, Commsworld has achieved an environmental accreditation ISO:14001.

The company introduced a number of green measures, even monitoring how the aggregate waste created by its suppliers is treated, as well as a policy that sees it recycle all of its computer hardware, often through donations to charity.

John McDermott, Chief Operating Officer, said: “To become deeply environmentally focused and see real change we had to set ourselves lofty targets, and zero landfill is exactly that.

“We believe we can achieve this in the coming years. The next challenge will be accelerating the timeline for delivering this.

“I believe our success here has been down to us getting granular with our approach to recycling and upcycling. It’s worth it and is the right thing to do.”
