Lyreco UK wins the SHD Logistics Environmental / Sustainability Award 2016 

On Thursday 15th September 2016, the team at Lyreco UK based in Telford, Shropshire, proudly accepted the SHD Logistics Award for Environmental / Sustainability, presented by comedian Mark Watson in front of 600 industry professionals. The event, which took place at Resorts World Birmingham, celebrated excellence in the logistics industry accross eleven main categories.

Lyreco UK's success was based on their continued commitment to the environment and the company's Eco Future Environmental Strategy. They have a strong ecological ethos and have successfully reduced their impact on the environment with traditional and innovative approaches to resource effciency and waste minimisation. 

With the implementation of extensive management programmes and projects throughout the business, Lyreco has covered some key sustainable areas:

Waste Management: 
With an amalgamation of various in-house projects including waste segregation, in 2014 Lyreco achieved zero landfill and continue to hit the same target annually. 

Biodiveristy and Conservation: 
An Eco-garden on site at the Head Office in Telford to encourage employee engagement and support local biodiversity. More recently, Lyreco introduced two beehives, which will eventually produce their very own honey.

Energy Effciency: 
Possibly the highlight of Lyreco's overall vision has to be the installation of 13,860 solar PV panels mounted on the roof of the National Distribution Centre in Telford. The objective of this system is to provide the Head Office and surronding areas with a clean electricity supply for many years to come. 

Peter MacLeod, editor of SHD Logistics, said "The mood of the evening was celebratory and upbeat, and it was heartening to see the obvious delight and pride shown by the winners. I congratulate Lyreco UK - a very deserving winner."

Nick Dacey, Logistics Director for Lyreco UK, added "Once again, the Team at Lyreco UK have exceeded all expectation and show a continued commitment in lowering Lyreco's environmental impact. I am immensely proud to be part of a team of likeminded individuals with an extensive wealth of knowledge and experience and are dedicated to lead the business into a more sustainable future."

Lyreco Award Highly Commended at Lux Awards

In November the 21st Lyreco was awarded a “Highly Commended” recognition in the Lux Awards in London. The awards celebrate and reward both creativity and sustainability among lighting professionals and individuals. The energy efficiency lighting project in the National distribution Centre was shortlisted in the “Industrial and Transport project of the year”. Although the winner of the category was “London Underground” for the implementation of LED’s, Lyreco was highly commended. This is an excellent recognition for a project that is delivering major carbon and cost savings. With an investment of £220K over 2 years, the project has less than a 2 year payback period. Electricity consumption from previous lighting has been reduced by 60% with annual savings of 685 tons of CO2 emissions. This is another example of how sustainability is high on the Lyreco’s business agenda.
