R.I.C. Publications is a certified recycler
R.I.C. Publications is committed to managing environmental matters as an integral part of our business planning and decisions. Our commitment extends to the manufacturing facility, our surrounding environment and our ability to contribute to the greater environment in which our products and operations extend.
R.I.C. Publications will endeavour to comply with applicable environmental legislation standards, industry codes of practice and procedures that we subscribe to. We strive for continuous improvement through the development of specific programs to address the environmental impacts and costs of our activities, products and services and will achieve this by:
- Developing and maintaining an EMS that will enable us to set and review environmental objectives and targets, and document and monitor our overall environmental performance. This will be accomplished in cooperation with SITA Western Recycling, who will provide timely statistical data on the level of waste produced in addition to recycling capabilities.
- Management of environmental systems will be adequately resourced and staff trained, where necessary, to ensure policy compliance. This includes the provision and clear labelling of recycling stations in all R.I.C. work areas and the implementation of a double-loop learning process for staff and management regarding the efficiency and effectiveness of the EMS.
- We are committed to the prevention of pollution, focusing on minimising the release of contaminants into the environment and the efficient use of raw materials to conserve natural resources. As such, we have adopted a policy of maximising our use of digital resources in order to reduce our reliance on paper, a major concern for publishing companies.
- We will communicate our commitment to environmental quality and to our company’s environmental performance to our employees, vendors, customers, and external stakeholders. R.I.C. Publications is a participant in the Green Stamp program, an initiative that provides certification of our environmental performance and allows us to communicate our commitment to stakeholders through the inclusion of the Green Stamp logo on our promotional material.
The directors of R.I.C. Publications are responsible for ensuring that this policy is communicated and adhered to by all employees and subcontractors, and that it is made available to interested members of the public.
