EPP sign the Midlothian Green Pledge

Category:

Midlothian Council are asking businesses to pledge their support to make their commitment to operating in a more sustainable way.

The Green Pledge supports and encourages businesses to play their part in operating in an environmentally friendly way whilst often benefiting from cost efficiencies at the same time.
Taking what this means as a business, EPP were delighted to sign and pledge their support.

Why did EPP sign the Midlothian Business Green Pledge?
As a business with a strong focus on the environment, signing the Midlothian Business Green Pledge made sense. We have numerous green initiatives already in place, environmentally conscious employees and customers and with the Net Zero targets of both Midlothian and Scotland in mind, EPP Ltd we saw this as a positive Midlothian initiative. It gives the company an opportunity to continue to improve and challenge our existing operations and show that we take Midlothian’s climate ambitions and actions seriously.

What are EPP Ltd doing to reach Net Zero?
Integral to our business are the ‘three R’s’’: Reduce, Reuse, Recycle.

Where possible, we ensure that the business operations fall into these guiding principles to ensure we are doing our bit for the environment, both now, and for future generations.

We have our own water Borehole providing our water source. Rainwater is recycled back into a natural burn and an onsite pond is a natural source of water for wildlife and birds.

EPP Ltd’s Green Pledge
Sharon McCluskie, Admin Manager from EPP Ltd said: “Signing the Midlothian Business Green Pledge is something we are delighted and proud to be part of. We have a number of innovative and impactful environmental initiatives already in place but felt this was the perfect opportunity to take a step back, evaluate our performance, process and ensure that we are environmentally on track, where possible. We understand that small steps can make a big difference to all our futures. This is a great initiative for Midlothian and we encourage other businesses to sign up too.”
