At the heart of Origin Green is a programme plan which encourages Slaney Foods and other food companies to engage directly with the challenges of sustainability through reducing energy inputs, minimizing carbon footprint and lessening the overall impact on the environment. Origin Green has complimented our GreenTrack corporate sustainability philosophy and provided us with the framework for a robust sustainability plan for our business which is independently verified.
Slaney Foods were one of the first verified members of Origin Green. Our sustainability targets are ambitious, and we have already had significant achievements in the areas of energy and waste usage efficiencies, water recycling and reducing our carbon footprint. We are now sending zero waste to landfill and our plan is to significantly reduce the amount of water, energy and carbon we use as result of projects such as lean manufacturing, efficient wastewater treatment and the conversion of all on-site boilers from oil to gas.
