DCI are continuously striving to satisfy environmental concerns and reduce our carbon footprint. Over recent years, many factors have been put into place to meet the challenges of new environmental legislation.
DCI have achieved an extensive portfolio of awards and certifications, including ISO 14001, FSC®, Nordic Swan and Blue Angel.
In recent years, radical changes have been made to the factory and manufacturing processes, including:
- £1 million investment in re-roofing over 10,000m2 of the factory to achieve a more energy efficient facility. Roofing materials were removed and replaced with energy efficient material to prevent heat loss and improve light
- After reviewing the efficiency of manufacturing, considerable investments in machinery were made to produce more parts per shift
- Two 110KW compressors were replaced with two more efficient 90KW compressors
- Renewable energy is used to heat the factory in winter by converting energy from machinery to heat energy
DCI have a zero landfill policy.
Many materials are recovered in house such as test paper, cardboard, used toner powder, plastic, wood and metal. Remaining materials are sent to a local professional recycling firm who specialise in the recovery of waste materials.
