Demonstrating our commitment to sustainability and quality
Published: 18th August 2021
A Silver Medal from EcoVadis
We take our ethical responsibilities and the sustainability of our business seriously so we subscribe to an independent assessment platform called EcoVadis.
EcoVadis is a collaborative platform which provides sustainability ratings, performance improvement tools, structure and transparency for both suppliers and customers.
Assessment is based on the environmental, social and ethical credentials across our business management, processes and practices, while the performance tools have also helped us to create an action plan for continuous improvements.
In our latest assessment we are proud to say we achieved Silver Medal status, with a score of 60/100, putting us in the 84th percentile and the top 25% of companies assessed.
ISO 14001 Certification
Alongside our Ecovadis medal, we are proud to hold the internationally recognised ISO 14001 standard, which verifies our efforts in designing and implementing an effective Environmental Management System (EMS).
The ISO 14001 Standard has provided a framework to enable us to improve our environmental performance through more efficient use of resources and reduction of waste.
It can provide our clients, as well as our employees, ultimate peace of mind that managing our environmental responsibilities and minimising our environmental impact is a key priority for our business, and that it is being measured and improved in a systematic manner.
To complement our ISO 14001, we are also certified to the BRC Quality Assurance standard as a manufacturer of paper and plastic point of sale display products, for food and non-food applications.
We are proud to be one of only a few POS manufacturers accredited to this demanding standard. In the eyes of our major retailers it is the equivalent (or higher) of the ISO 9001 manufacturing standard.
Achievement of the standard demands rigorous application of both GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and HACCP (Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points). This accreditation will be welcomed by Lighthouse Display’s many customers in the food, drink, snacks and confectionery sectors but also by other customers who value working with a quality partner.
The BRC standard provides significant reassurance that Lighthouse Display is a dependable, reliable and trustworthy partner to work with in the supply chain.
These three things combined will provide our clients with peace of mind, help them understand our current sustainability status and how we compare to similar companies within our industry.
“Reducing our impact on the environment is a key part of our strategy, whilst maintaining the quality of our product offering. Our aim is to adapt what we already do to ensure any detrimental effects on the planet are minimised as well as continuing to progress the business with environmental considerations in mind.”
