Environmental Strategy

Audiotonix and its Board of Directors recognise the importance of its environmental responsibilities and, whilst complying with all environmental legislation, regulations and appropriate codes of practice, continuously seeks  to minimise the impact our business activities have in the local and worldwide communities we operate within. As the designer and manufacturer of electronic products, our environmentally conscious design philosophy has been developed to encourage the use of recycled materials in new product design and, wherever possible, that the supply chain is local to our business operations to encourage minimal transport and packing waste.

Audiotonix actively encourages our R&D teams to champion our Environmentally Conscious Design best practices during the process of concepting, developing and supporting the lifespan of our products. As part of this good design practice the weight, size and materials used are constantly reviewed  to minimise the carbon footprint required to move the product around the globe and power consumption is reduced wherever possible. The development teams work with best-in-class suppliers who, themselves,  use environmentally responsible processes and recyclable materials wherever possible, and we are continually searching for new technologies and materials that offer opportunities to improve this further.  Throughout the development of new products,  regular reviews are carried out to ensure we are meeting our goals of eco conscious design.  These benchmarks are documented within our Audiotonix R&D Eco design Strategy which forms an integral part of the R&D design methodology. Since this introduction, we have seen a number of initiatives driven by the R&D teams themselves which illustrate their drive and desire to improve the environmental impact of the Groups’ products.

Key environmental goals from Group operations relate to our energy consumption, waste generation and logistics. We are committed to minimising the potential environmental impacts from our operations by adapting the following principles:

  • Quantify and monitor the significant environmental impacts of our activities
  • Integrate environmental objectives into our business decisions
  • Enhance awareness of good environmental practises amongst our staff, partner and suppliers
  • Reduce plastic, paper and non-recyclable consumables in our offices and factories
  • Reduce, re-use and recycle as much waste as possible
  • Use technology for communication instead of travel wherever possible
  • Reduce the consumption of electricity, gas and water in our buildings
  • We are committed with a timetable to use green energy sources and technologies in our facilities
  • To generate our own electricity where appropriate

Energy management within each of our properties is key.  We have introduced local monitoring to foster energy reduction through continuous building improvements and, in addition, we are almost there in our migration to renewable electrical energy and carbon neutral natural gas in our buildings. In our business processes,  we are introducing new, harmonised IT technologies that will drastically reduce paper usage in our daily operations.

It has been the policy of the Audiotonix Group to report from April 2020 publicly on its Environmental objectives and performances on an annual basis.
