Made In Wales Awards 2014

Posted by Chris Hinton at 08:10 on 31 October 2014

Shine were fortunate to be nominated and shortlisted as a finalist for the Made In Wales Awards 2014 in the category of “Green Manufacturer” following recognition of our efforts and initiatives to reduce the company’s environmental impact having significantly invested in energy efficiency equipment such as Solar Panels to generate our own power, LED Energy Efficient Lighting, and installing an Industrial Wood Burner, using up all our paper, card and wood waste as a fuel source to provide heating to our factory.


The company have undergone a Green improvement programme over the last 48 months focusing on improving  our environmental and sustainability impacts by implementing a waste reduction, reuse and recycling plan, reducing energy consumption by fitting PIR and LUX sensors throughout the building, eliminating the need for third party collectors and processors of waste, reduced energy consumption of plant and equipment by fitting timers, reducing compressed air pressures along with a full maintenance programme to ensure machine efficiency and amending the Company car policy to limit Co2 consumption. That along with better planning of our transportation and logistics requirements to minimise Fuel consumption, working closely with our supply chain to ensure responsible and sustainable procurement, reducing packaging volumes, buying wood free paper and refillable ink cartridges.  The company has really embraced the programme which has already seen significant benefit.


Both Chris Hinton (Sales & Marketing Manager) and Louise Carey (Compliance & Bid Manager) attended the Awards dinner on the evening of 23rd October where on the night the judges awarded another company with the top spot! Louise said of the nomination “ It was a great accolade to be shortlisted as a finalist out of so many companies of varied sizes” she added, “given the tough economic climate of recent years and the slow recovery felt by many businesses that for most embarking on this kind of initiative with such heavy investment wouldn’t be on the top of the priorities list for most businesses but in doing so it demonstrates Shine’s commitment to a sustainable future for the business and undertaking measures such as these now ensures the longevity of the business as well as maintaining the focus of reducing the environmental impacts from our business and its activities”
