Plastering and drylining product manufacturer British Gypsum has marked two years of sending zero waste to landfill.
The firm has diverted in excess of 200,000 tonnes from landfill since April 2009.
The company identified areas where waste was being produced in the manufacturing process, and made changes to minimise this.
It then significantly invested in increasing its in-house recycling capabilities at each of its sites.
Brian Andreas, sustainability leader at British Gypsum, said: “We’re committed to addressing sustainability across every aspect of our business, and waste is one key area of focus as highlighted by the Plasterboard Sustainability Action Plan.
“So as well as helping customers tackle waste management, we’ve explored how we, as a business, can minimise what is sent to landfill too.”
