Environment

Individuals and companies alike are raising their awareness of their day-to-day impact on the environment and the need to do more to protect and improve the planet. Here at Standard Brands we are sensitive to our environmental impact and we are consistently focused on improving.

Since the company's founding in 1936, we have always felt an inherent responsibility for the surrounding area where our factory is located and where many of our employees live. In 2008, we successfully launched our Sustainability Initiative and have made significant changes to the way we operate as a business and as a production facility.

The waste generated from the products we manufacture is completely recycled back into production, and our control procedures ensure that our liquid byproducts are compliant with license agreements and relevant legislation. Our fire starter packaging is 100% recyclable, and we have a line of natural products made from wood and wax with FSC accreditation.

Recently we have developed a unique fire starter using a formulation of naturally sourced, fully sustainable biofuels that are both environment and wildlife friendly.

Business practices such as Skype calls, car sharing, and double-sided printing/photocopying and recycling are now second nature to us. We actively seek out and source materials from suppliers who share our environmental outlook and standards. Collectively we believe that we can all make a difference and will continue to invest in our environmental initiatives.

Environment  ISO 14001

Standard Brands continues to be ISO 14001 accredited, the international standard for Environmental Management Systems.
