World Environment Day is Saturday 5th June and across the world people will be raising awareness of, and taking action on, environmental challenges that we are all facing.
At Lucy Group, we are very proud to support and contribute to the development of the communities in which we live and work.
Across all of our businesses, we are working hard to provide environmentally friendly solutions to our customers and stakeholders to help reduce their carbon footprints and meet their sustainability requirements.
Some of the solutions and initiatives that we are working on include:
Smart lighting – to conserve energy by providing the right light at the right time
Effective lighting control which can significantly reduce light pollution
Air quality sensors – to monitor, measure, and proactively manage emissions
EV charging supports our move towards cleaner transport across the UK
Innovative power distribution solutions – to enable utility networks to meet their responsibilities to provide sustainable, secure & affordable energy
Connection of renewable energy including wind & solar
Responsible production processes – scrap copper is collected in large bins and sold on to local recycling companies
Recycling packaging – incoming cardboard is fully recycled and non-confidential paper waste is shredded and reused to pack and protect products within cardboard boxes
Process improvement – switch from hand soldering to spot welding. The new process eliminates the use of solder, flux, and gas, bringing both cost-saving & environmental improvements and increases operator personnel performance and productivity
