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.
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.
Working Together to Reduce our Carbon Footprints
Fileder can support your environmental initiatives through its professional services and products, which provide a technical solution for removing contaminants and promoting the conservation of natural resources.
As the global and customer focus turn more to environmental responsibility and action, having Fileder as a business partner promoting sustainability and being part of your supply chain can reduce your company’s carbon footprint.
Electric Company Cars
All company cars are being upgraded from hybrid to electric, meaning less emissions from our sales teams on the road.
Fileder has partnered with TCV (The Conservation Volunteers) to plant 2021/2022 trees in the Maidstone area.
Working Towards ISO
Fileder is currently working towards obtaining the voluntary standard ISO 14001:2015, which assists companies in continually improving environmental performance; stage 1 achieved in April 2021.
Work-life balance is important at Fileder. 20% of our staff are employed part-time, and benefits for all include subsidised osteopath treatments, golf society, weekly boxercise and fitness sessions.
Plastic Packaging Tax - 1 April 2022
Fileder supports the Government’s drive to encourage the use of recycled rather than new plastic within plastic packaging and is already working closely with our manufacturing partners to ensure that we not only meet but exceed the 30% recycled targets.
In 2020, Fileder was awarded SILVER in the EcoVadis Sustainable Procurement Leadership Awards scheme, which celebrates excellence and recognises the outstanding performance of companies in engaging and integrating sustainability into their relationships with trading partners around the globe.
