Transport

Chadwicks is moving towards more sustainable transport through introducing the trail of electric vehicles, by replacing its fleet of forklifts with low emission vehicles and by fitting company vehicles with trackers to make drivers become aware of their driving behaviour.


Energy Consumption

Across all Chadwicks branches, all lighting has been changed to LED delivering a 30% reduction in costs and all locations are powered by 100% renewable energy.

Technology

We have undergone multiple changes to be more sustainable with our technology such as replacing all printers with energy efficient Xerox machines, introducing an Ink Cartridge Recycling program and PrintReleaf program “Print One- Plant One”, as well as introducing ePOD and eInvoicing to remove paper when purchasing.


Community

From bug hotels, wild gardens, tree planting and supporting local community initiatives, Chadwicks prides itself in giving back to its communities.


Members of IGBC
