Watershed Packaging is committed to being a sustainable and environmentally friendly business operating in the Print industry. As a business we want to play a vital role in ensuring we are doing all we can to help the environment.
We produce Flexible Packaging such as Shrink Sleeves, Flexible Packaging, Die Cut Lids, Labels and Printed Tape. We also sell end of line Packaging Machinery. We are taking steps to ensure our business is as environmentally sustainable as possible and we have the environmental credentials to match.
Our Environmental Credentials
In 2018 we were awarded a Zero Labels 2 Landfill certification and a Zero Foil 2 Landfill certification. This Scheme is run by Prismm Environmental Limited and is sponsored by the British Printing Industry Federation (BPIF). It guarantees that absolutely none of our Label waste or Foil/ Metalized Polyester waste will be taken to landfill. This year we have kept this certification which shows we care about the sustainable aspects of our business.
Label Printing companies similar to ourselves that have already signed up to the scheme have diverted 5,925 tonnes of Label waste from landfill in 2015. The aluminium Die Cut Lids that we produce are all fully recyclable.
Sustainability is at the forefront of our design of our end of line Packaging Machinery, with energy saving and safety a priority and passion. All our machines are built with non-toxic components.
Our Building & Site Environmental Measures
Our state of the art headquarters in Leeds is also extremely energy efficient. 100% of the Electricity supply at Watershed Packaging now runs on renewably sourced energy and we have a Guarantee of Origin (GoO) certificate to prove it.
We use primarily LED lighting where possible and in our office spaces we recycle paper printer waste and all our printer ink cartridges. We encourage our staff to bring in their own ink cartridge waste from home to recycle at work.
Throughout our building we recycle air to ensure our employees are receiving a high quality air supply despite being indoors.
We hold surface water in a huge underground tank to prevent our nearby river from flooding.
All oil leakage from cars and transport vehicles is collated into a central separator underneath our site which prevents it from reaching fresh water.
We have also taken part in CycleScheme whereby our employees are given funding towards a bicycle of their choice, to encourage an active method of transport to get to and from work, to not only reduce car emissions but also to promote fitness and wellbeing.
As well as aiming to delight all customers, we truly care about our team and the wider community. Having a happy, healthy and empowered workforce working in a thriving community is central to the ongoing success of Watershed.
