The Monarch Group’s sustainability initiatives are aimed at improving our impact on local and global environments. Our comprehensive environmental plan has 3 major focus areas:
CLEAN ENERGY, REDUCED ENERGY
Energy can be a major contributor of carbon emissions depending on how it is generated. The Monarch Group remains focused on initiatives aimed at reducing energy consumption through investments in new machines, auxiliary technologies and lighting. These initiatives all combine to lower power consumption considerably.
WASTE REDUCTION, REUSE, RECYCLE PROGRAMS
Waste reduction is enabled in part by a series of computer and smartphone applications that dramatically reduce the need for paper. The Monarch Group’s recycling and reuse efforts include a formal recycling program extending across all facilities, providing employee education and convenient bin locations. In our manufacturing facilities, to help eliminate waste and scrap, we reuse plastic scrap generating from manufacturing, which is a by-product when forming our products.
At Monarch, we believe that excellent design is achieved when products deliver a superior customer experience, while being manufactured with an optimum amount of material. The introduction of key design elements results in lighter weight products which in turn reduce carbon emissions relating to reduced resin use and transportation of lighter products.
Our packaging consultants will also offer design insight from a sustainability lens to ensure that product recyclability is optimised. We also offer sustainability insights into the product designs, to educate customers
