With a firm focus on the future and projects, we consider it our responsibility to reduce our impact on the environment and plan for a better future. Choosing our ranges also comes down to this: zero waste, sustainable development and green economy.
The plan is to continue developing the practices already in place, ensuring that raw materials are obtained in the most sustainable way possible, improving factory, warehouse and transportation efficiency, and ensuring that packaging is the least harmful to the environment. The goal is to pave the way to ensure that Saracen Shop Nowers can easily make the right choice when it comes to supporting the environment for a more sustainable future.
Paper bags are common in the equestrian feed industry. In 2014, Saracen chose to use a packaging supplier that shares a passion for the environment. The bags are manufactured in a facility powered by its own on-site solar panels, and the materials are 100 percent recyclable, including oil-resistant coatings. The goal is to make all of our product packaging recyclable.
NUTRITION FOR THE FUTURE
With an eye to the future, one of Saracen’s priorities is to reduce its impact on the environment and plan for a better tomorrow. Five key areas have been invested in to improve environmental contribution: the ingredients used, the energy that powers the production site, waste management systems, lighting and packaging. Because the planet must be put first!
0 KM INGREDIENTS
Sourcing raw materials locally has always been a key factor in sourcing ingredients for Saracen products. Seventy percent of what is used in production comes from southeast England.
100% RENEWABLE ENERGY
The energy used at the Saracen production site comes from 100 percent renewable sources, and is supplied by a company that has a zero-emission rating for renewable energy. Most of the energy comes from wind, while the rest is generated from solar, hydroelectric and biomass sources.
The Saracen plant and warehouses are illuminated by LED lights. This type of lighting uses 75 percent less energy, and the bulbs last 25 times longer than incandescent bulbs. There are also many light panels in the roofs of the warehouses, which let in more natural light so as to rely less on artificial lighting. All lighting, both outside and in the office, is sensor-based, which means that lights are used only when necessary.
SUSTAINABILITY IN WASTE MANAGEMENT.
For nearly a decade, Saracen has used a waste management contractor with a zero-dump policy. All waste is turned into compost, pallet wrappers and straps are recycled, and all packaging sent to consumers with Saracen products complies with waste packaging regulations.
