Corporate Social Responsibility
Here at Principled Storage, we recognise our responsibility and obligation to work to reduce the direct impact of our business operations on the environment, both now and in the future.
We are committed to creating a business that makes conscious decisions that have a positive impact on the natural environment.
During the production of our document storage boxes, any parts that do not meet our manufacturers high quality standards are granulated back into pellet form to be used in the next cycle. This inclusion of recycled materials eliminates the use of landfill.
Studies have been conducted into the use of plastic versus cardboard in the returnable transit case sector. Research shows that, in comparison, manufacturing and recycling plastic actually has less impact on the environment compared to cardboard.
On average, our bespoke plastic storage totes has a life span of 15-20 years, unlike a cardboard box which is easily damaged, and affected by damp and water.
Taking into consideration the fact that in a span of 15-20 years, you could potentially be replacing a cardboard box annually, the usage and consumption of greenhouse gases is far more in using and recycling carboard each year, rather than manufacturing and recycling a plastic tote once.
Most companies will also charge you for each cardboard box you use, and also for repacking and providing a new box each time they get damaged or damp.
Principled Storage’s Logistics Department are continually looking for ways to reduce their CO2 emissions. In the last three years, we have switched all of our fleet to hybrid vehicles, reducing our carbon footprint.
We also continually review our routes and plans and utilise GPS and telematics technology to ensure that we are taking the most efficient routes around the country, reducing our fuel consumption and again our CO2 emissions.
