- The Enviornment
Going Green, Eco Friendly, Carbon footprint or Environmentally Friendly are terms that we hear about every day. However, since our beginnings in 1987, reuse of your display, recyclable products and environmental friendly business practices have been core values in the manufacture and supply of our products. As we learn more about environmental issues, we continue to improve our practices to meet our obligation to the environment.
For over 20 years, we have been manufacturing and supplying high quality display hardware that can be used again and again. Our display stands are modular, reconfigurable or easily updated to be fresh and innovative for your current brand or marketing requirements. Further to this, we encourage the return of displays (no longer used) so we can donate to charities and not for profit organisations who face financial challenges.
On average, 95% of our display items (including banners, pop ups and trade show and exhibition stands) can be recycled. Our display stands are predominately aluminium; all displays are constructed from aluminium (fully recyclable) structures and fittings. Our printing processes are predominately water based and dye sublimation which are better for the environment in comparison traditional UV and solvent based printing. The majority of our printing media is polyester which is recyclable or fabric/textile.
Waste reduction is an important factor in creating a better environment. At Spyder, we reduce our waste through effective management of stock, quality control procedures, and use of fully recyclable products. We have also reduced our overall use of paper, toners and equipment, and energy use by harnessing our technology. Through device rationalization, efficient software packages and staff supported procedures; we have reduced our paper consumption by over 50% in the past few years.
We are leading the local business communities with environmentally sustainable business practices including the installation of a massive 54 kilowatt solar PV system to run our factory and head office. This has future proofed the business for expected production over the next 20 years.
