Leading supplier of logistics automation, warehousing, materials handling and storage systems, Dematic has achieved Silver Partnership Status with the NSW Government’s Sustainability Advantage Program.
The program recognises excellence in environmental performance and commitment to sustainability. Apart from Dematic, 40 other NSW businesses representing diverse sectors such as aged care, education, manufacturing, property and infrastructure were acknowledged for their outstanding environmental achievements by NSW Environment Minister Robyn Parker at the ceremony held at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.
Dematic, which has a manufacturing facility on the edge of the national park in Belrose, has made environmental management a key priority since becoming a member of the Sustainability Advantage Program in 2007.
The company has undertaken extensive risk analysis and resource assessments at the facility, identifying key areas of improvement and making significant changes in its operations, from switching to more efficient IT equipment to redesigning products and packaging to reduce steel content and waste.
Dematic’s Silver Partnership marks another step in its continuous process of improvement, along with the organisation’s ISO14001 certification. Dematic is focused on engaging their suppliers in the programme, while continuing to identify areas of internal improvement with the ongoing support of the Sustainability Advantage Programme.
