Environmental Policy

 Policy Statement

It is Sedgewall’s policy and practice to always consider the environment, wastage and safety aspects at all levels of all operations, within both our company and our sub-contractors.


Deliveries – wherever possible contract carriers are used to ensure that maximum efficiency is obtained rather than a small urgent package being delivered in isolation.

Company vehicles are regularly serviced to ensure maximum efficiency.  Staff are encouraged to use public transport wherever possible especially within London and other major cities.

Waste Management

Purchasing of materials and components are made on a “just in time” basis from the large distribution organisations.  This minimises “over-stocking”, consequent wastage, and reduces the storage area required to a minimum, further reducing the need for heating and lighting power.

Prototypes of all new products are made and proved prior to full scale production, to minimise unnecessary waste of time and materials.

Our BS EN ISO 9001 quality system assists in highlighting human resource wastage within our business. Sub-contractors are encouraged to become similarly registered.  Regular internal audits and reviews are performed to ensure efficient operation. Visits by our internal audit staff to our sub-contractors, assist both Sedgewall and the sub-contractors in minimising waste.


All surplus and unwanted stock is sold to specialist companies for disposal.

Metal scrap is sold by its weight for recycling.

Packing – inwards packaging is re-used wherever possible with new labels for goods being shipped out.

Skip waste is recycled by our waste disposal contractors.

Wherever possible, toner cartridges are returned to the manufacturer for re-use.

New products are designed to enable components and materials to be recovered, recycled or disposed of safely at the end of their lives.
