Sustainability case study

GKN Structures in Telford has been educating its 630 assembly workers in environmental awareness. This includes how to be greener at home and at work and the result has seen an improvement in waste segregation of up to 30% in production areas.

The training tackles issues of how to recycle in all rooms of their home and not just the kitchen and also saving money on energy bills. With rising energy and fuel prices, the workforce has taken a keen interest and this is reflected in recycling rates at work as well as GKN’s energy bills.

The training has also seen the increase in people cycling to work and car sharing to reduce travel carbon emissions.
