Environmental Responsibility

Redland has been at the forefront of raising environmental awareness in the construction sector for many years. Redland won a Queen's Award for it's pioneering Cambrian Slate during the 1980s for its high recycled waste content while in 1997 Redland became the first UK roof tile manufacturer to launch a roof-integrated photovoltaic solar panel for generating zero-carbon renewable electricity. In addition to working with the Environment Agency to help protect and improve our environment, Redland operates an environmental policy and management system across all its manufacturing sites covering energy efficiency, waste minimisation, water efficiency and pollution reduction.

Improvement projects in all these areas continuously reduce the embodied environmental impacts of Redland products so that they meet the needs of our customers and requirements of new building codes such as the Code for Sustainable Homes. (see button below for the government communities website)

Environmental Management System (ISO14001)

As well as working with the Environment Agency to help protect and improve the environment, Redland operates a policy and management system covering energy efficiency, waste minimisation, water efficiency and pollution reduction.

Improving and developing an Environmental Management System is both good business practice and a matter of corporate social responsibility. Hence our manufacturing operations incorporate a documented Environmental Management System 'EMS' which is designed to be audited against ISO14001 and include compliance with all the relevant environmental regulations. Monier Limited sets and reviews achievable environmental performance improvement objectives that contribute to a continual reduction in the environmental impacts of the company's products and services.

We take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. We do not see them as a legal burden but as an opportunity to differentiate ourselves in a competitive market and to help shape and improve the quality of life of local communities near our plants and the country as a whole.

Recycling of waste material, waste water recycling, packaging reviews and recycling used product at the end of its life are ways in which Monier strives to reduce the impact of waste on the environment. Specific examples can be found by clicking here

In combination with a robust Environmental Management System (EMS), here in the UK we benchmark all our plants against over 150 Monier Group roofing plants around the world. For more information click on the heading above.
