During the last few months Vision logistics has started to look at ways of being more environmentally friendly. The company has started to recycle its cardboard and shrink-wrap in our warehouse with recycling collections being collected fortnightly. Another way we are becoming more environmentally friendly is within our office environment, we now have bins that are used for paper only; reusing folders and one of the main changes within the office is that it is going more towards being paperless. For example more invoices are now sent via email and not the old conventional way. This has the effect of saving the environment and money with buying paper to print on, ink envelopes and saving money on postage. Almost all offices have facilities to receive emails and send them so it seems appropriate and quicker to send invoices and correspondence via email.
Vision have now gone as far as setting up online data storage with links so that people within the organisation can access files without them being sent by email and need for them to be printed out.
Vision Logistics is committed to trying to do its bit for the environment as everyone will benefit in the future if we can preserve natural resources.
