EDWPS business aims for 2022
Eclipsing 2021's achievements will be no mean feat by any stretch but we're more than up for the challenge. We're finalists in 3 of the prestigious Printweek awards being held in March.
We'll be making a concerted effort to further increase our eco-credentials whilst decreasing our carbon footprint. Thanks to the Sustainability in Enterprise team at Nottingham Trent University, (who provided us with a comprehensive environmental & carbon assessment report), we now have a framework of actions to be undertaken to aid our ambition to be Carbon Zero by 2027. To capitalise on our investment in 2021 we've lined up further investment in our fulfilment equipment this year our in-house improvements continue in January at our Nottingham based production facility with several areas behind the scenes being updated to welcome visitors to the site.
