At Opus Trust Communications we recognise our responsibility to the environment, our local communities and our people.
The use of paper in society is always topical and as a high volume mail producer we do everything we can to minimise waste, recycle by-products and find good uses for anything we no longer need to reduce volumes of waste to landfill.
We have been ISO14001 certified since 2006 and consistently recycle 98% of our operational waste. Our Environmental Management System ensures that our activities and achievements are measured, monitored and recorded. All waste is segregated and removed by approved recycling contractors.
All our envelopes are PEFC certified (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and we work with many clients who require FSC® certified (Forest Stewardship Council®) material. We offer recycled paper as an alternative to our clients who choose not to use paper from virgin sources.
SUPPORTING OUR COMMUNITY
We regularly donate surplus materials, hardware and furniture to local schools, hospitals, charities and community groups. We support the Derby Play and Recycling Centre which distributes surplus paper and packaging materials to local schools and community groups to use in art projects. LOROS benefits from our fund raising events with proceeds helping to support over 2,500 terminally ill patients, their families and carers across Leicestershire and Rutland.
Our Founder and Chairman, Peter De Haan, is a keen philanthropist donating over £28 million to a wide range of causes since 1999. The Peter De Haan Charitable Trust aims to improve the quality of life for people and communities in the UK through its work with arts, environmental and community welfare organisations.
The Leicester community has received considerable donations over the years and continues to benefit. Current environmental programmes being considered for support focus on carbon capture and clean air.
We are champions of diversity and equality and embrace our multi-cultural workforce. They are highly valued; providing a wide range of skills for our business and our customers.
