Fileder holds a proactive approach to social responsibilities – people, values, other organisations and the environment around us; annually nominating a local charity and encouraging our employees to volunteer as part of the company’s commitment.

Keen to inspire learning and fulfilling ambitions both within and outside of the workplace, Fileder organises various development and social activities.

Recycling

Fileder's recycling initiative sends all possible materials to be reprocessed into new products and, where not, all other general waste is generated into energy; consequentially resulting in absolutely 0% to landfill.

Our Business Partners can help support Fileder’s ‘Go Green’ commitment further by recycling wooden pallets, all cardboard and plastic packaging, or reusing items, such as plastic pallets, which are specifically requested by some industries.

Fileder is working with our manufacturing partners to ensure that cardboard packaging meets our goal of using 75% recycled material, with Spectrum and Suez already exceeding this figure.
