Green Statement

Videopro is committed to leading the industry in minimising the impact of its activities on the environment.

We do this while continuing to meet the expectations of our customers for quality and service, by providing a safe working environment for our employees, contractors, customers and the environment alike.

We believe that all Videopro employees and everyone associated with the Company have an important role to play in helping to achieve our environmental objectives and targets.

The key points of its strategy to achieve this are:

  • Minimise waste by evaluating operations and ensuring they are as efficient as possible
  • Use energy efficient equipment where possible
  • Actively promote recycling both internally and amongst its customers and suppliers
  • Source and promote a product range to minimise the environmental impact of both production and distribution
  • Meet or exceed all the environmental legislation that relates to the Company
  • Attempt to reduce the environmental impact that relates to shipping by (where applicable) aiming to purchase more locally produced products. Regularly reviewing pollution based practices and further monitor them by minimizing the creation of waste
  • Train and educate our employees and advise contractors in respect to the environmental policy and objectives.
