CFH Docmail Ltd have been awarded a “Big Tick” for our environmental contribution in the Sustainable Product and Services category at the BITC Responsible Business Awards 2014.
It is yet more recognition of CFH’s impressive contribution to a cleaner environment in the build up to Bristol’s recognition as European Green Capital, 2015, when the eyes of the Europe will be on the region.
As part of the South West Business article on this issue, CFH Docmail’s efforts are commended:
“Another local business doing its bit is print and mailing specialist CFH Docmail. Following a two-year research project with UWE, the firm is looking at ways to reduce waste, energy use and the overall environmental impact of its 110,000 sq ft Radstock plant. It has already cut energy use by 23 per cent.
“Managing director Dave Broadway said: “Some of the changes are very obvious – such as our switch to using electric vehicles to deliver mail to the local postal depots, switching to LED lighting, and buying our electricity from a sustainable source.”
“But he said other less obvious changes had had a big impact too, such as replacing inefficient air compressors, used printing press machines, installing a gas optimisation controller and energy measuring equipment, and implementing a staff cycle-to-work scheme.
“Perhaps the firm’s biggest strides have been in the introduction of its Velopost service, which delivers 20,000 pieces of mail by bicycle in Bristol and Bath.
“Innovation of this kind will help Bristol square the circle of living up to being Europe’s Green Capital.”
