Although Berry Services' activity has very little impact on the environment, the company nonetheless strives to limit its impact on the environment as much as possible.
All used packaging is sorted by category in order to facilitate its recycling.
Berry Services is equipped with a cardboard compactor, which halves the volume of used cardboard to be transported.
Non-reusable pallets are given to a specialist company to be repaired or recycled.
To reduce electricity consumption, we have equipped the lighting controls with occupancy sensors so that lights only come on when necessary.
All traditional lighting is gradually being replaced by LED lights that consume 2.2 times less energy, while providing better lighting quality.
Insulation and heat pump heating
Our workshops and warehouses are particularly well insulated (roofs and walls).
We have developed a heat pump heating system, which is far more energy efficient.
Environmentally friendly products
For cleaning, stain removal and washing services, Berry Services only uses products that comply with legislation and that are biodegradable.
Simple actions to help safeguard the environment
- Replacing fabric hand towels
Fabric hand towels have been replaced by latest generation electric hand dryers. In addition to being far more hygienic, this equipment saves water and energy, given that there is no need to wash hand towels.
- Scrapping plastic cups
The provision of plastic cups for staff has been discontinued; everyone must now bring their own bottle or flask.
This will save around 25,000 cups per year from ending up in landfill.
