Zero waste to landfill achievement for Christeyns

Warrington-based Christeyns Food Hygiene has achieved zero waste to landfill for the last two years as it puts sustainability at the heart of company policy. By working in partnership with ACM Environmental, the firm has achieved exceptional environmental performance with zero waste to landfill in 2020, 2021 and on target for 2022.

Christeyns Food Hygiene, as part of Christeyns UK, has been working on a strategy for reducing waste and emissions and is part of a group initiative, Project Terra, which focuses on every aspect of the firm’s business in relation to sustainability and the environment. Considerable budget has been invested in equipment and training to ensure facilities are as modern and efficient as possible. This has included installing low energy LED lighting across the whole site, creating a reduction in usage of up to 75%.

Other initiatives completed over the past two years have been the installation of EV charging points, the recycling of all toner cartridges, adding plants to the site to improve biodiversity, and the collection and monitoring of all gas, electricity and water data to establish targets for reductions.

Sarah Hobbs, health, safety and environmental supervisor at Christeyns Food Hygiene, said: “Being one of the largest food hygiene providers in the UK, it is important for the whole team to lead by example and minimise the impact of our business on the environment. More and more of our clients are focusing on green issues and it is reassuring for them to know that their supply chain is equally committed.”
