Sustainability

For years, we have committed ourselves to be a more sustainable business. We are committed to reducing our impact on the environment by considering our actions and working with customers and suppliers to develop and implement solutions.

 

Being ISO 14001 accredited (an international standard for design and implementation of effective environmental management systems) and a Gold Member of the Supply Chain Sustainability School shows our long-standing commitment to being an environmentally conscious business.

 

Planet – Across our branches, we continue to implement environmentally friendly measures. This includes efficient waste management, carbon footprint reduction, and the monitoring of our water use and fuel and energy consumption.

 

All of the electricity we use in our offices and warehouses comes from 100% renewable sources. We are fitting LED lights to our buildings and have active programs to reduce waste to landfill.

 

We utilise a state-of-the-art vehicle telemetry routing system that ensures every vehicle within our fleet uses the most efficient delivery run each day to ensure that traffic idle time and vehicle mileage is constantly minimised so that the CO2 emitted by our vehicles is kept as low as possible.

 

People – We proudly have a highly sustainable approach to our team members. Wherever possible we promote from within and recruit and develop our own talent. We utilise a leading online training portal that all team members can access to develop their own skills and learning. Our employees have access to several benefits to support mental, physical and financial wellbeing.

 

Bunzl Plc has recently launched ‘Inspiring Women in Bunzl’ (IWIB), which aims to be the catalyst for Bunzl to lead the way in creating a supportive and empowering culture for women to achieve their goals.

 

From individual fundraising to branch fundraising and charitable work we are very proud of the social value that we give back. Our national Charity of the Year is Emmaus, who support homeless people by providing them with a home and meaningful work in a community setting. In 2019, we raised £23,462 for the charity and donated roughly £75,000 of stock to support their communities. Currently supporting more than 750 formerly homeless people, they are passionate people working tirelessly to end homelessness. We are proud to partner with Emmaus.

 

Sustainable Solutions - At BCHS, we understand that our customers have differing priorities. We are always on the lookout for new product innovations that will help us bring new solutions to environmental problems onto the market for all. We consider it our responsibility to offer products that make sustainable cleaning solutions accessible, by considering factors such as plastic & waste reduction, non-hazardous chemicals, water saving and responsible sourcing.

 

Innovation

Innovation is at the heart of everything we do. We are constantly searching for the market’s most innovative products and solutions. If they pass our strenuous Innovation Panel which is made up of a team of very passionate experts from within BCHS by demonstrating they have real innovative qualities and features, we then feature them in our market-leading publication Innov8 which we publish on a quarterly basis.

 

Many of the products we have featured in Innov8 have been an award or multi award-winning products and we pride ourselves with being the first supplier to take them to the market and showcase them to our customers.

COVID-19

Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene is committed to the health, safety and welfare of its employees as its first priority. A risk assessment has been conducted in accordance with Government guidance on working safely during COVID-19, which was issued on 11th May 2020.

 

The risk assessment has been used to identify potential risks related to exposure to, catching and spreading COVID-19 and has identified the measures needed to reduce risk to the lowest reasonably practicable level by taking preventative measures, in order of priority. The risk assessment recommendations have been shared with our employees.

 

Measures in Use to Reduce Risk:

 

  • - Increasing the frequency of handwashing and surface cleaning in the workplace
  • - Enabling our employees to work from home where possible
  • - Taking all reasonable steps to maintain a 2 metre distance in the workplace
  • - Keeping the activity time involved in tasks as short as possible
  • - Using back-to-back or side-to-side working (rather than face-to-face) whenever possible
  • - Reducing the number of people each person has contact with by using ‘fixed teams or partnering’ (so each person works with only a few others)
  • - Finally, where people must work face-to-face for a sustained period with more than a small group of fixed partners, then we have assessed whether the activity can safely go ahead. In such circumstances, where required, additional Personal Protective Equipment, for instance face coverings have been made available

 

Particular regard has been given to employees who are especially vulnerable to COVID-19 and appropriate measures have been taken to minimize their personal risk, including home working and reassignment to tasks and activities that reduce that personal risk to the lowest reasonably practical level.

 

Particular regard has also been given to understanding the circumstances of those with protected characteristics and any measures or adjustments that may been needed to address a different degree of risk or alternative measures that may be required under the Equality Act 2010.

 

The Government guidance related specifically to working safely in Warehouses, Offices & Contact Centres, Vehicles and Retail Branches has been incorporated into the risk assessment.

 

Furthermore, the risk assessment has taken account of Government guidance on travelling to and from work, meetings in the workplace and the presence of visitors and contractors at Bunzl Cleaning & Hygiene locations.

 

The risk assessment that has been carried out will be kept under review and revisited periodically, or where Government guidance is amended or updated.
