The Luxmy Group has been awarded with a number of green certification and is dedicated to environmentally sustainable practices to ensure the health and well being of staff, clients, end users and the planet. Just some of these practices include:
Raw material minimisation
Components, meterages and construction on methods are regularly reviewed for efficiencies and improvements.
Paper, plastic and timber waste from production and administration is collected for reuse, reprocessing or recycling.
All electrical and gas machinery, services and appliances are monitored daily to avoid waste.
Environmental Management Standard
This internationally recognised standard specifies a process for the control and the continuous improvement of an organisation’s environmental performance.
ISO 14001 is an international standard developed by the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) through dedicated technical committees representing approximately 150 countries around the world. Its purpose is to enable an organization of any type or size to develop and implement a policy committing it to prevention of pollution, compliance with legal and other requirements, and continual improvement.
The realization of this commitment will be a management system that recognizes and manages the primary environmental issues through awareness and assessment of applicable legal requirements, objectives for improvement, assignment of responsibilities, competent personnel, communications, procedures, controls and monitoring, emergency response capability, self correction and assessment, and internal reviews. These processes are to be based on the Plan-Do-Check-Act cycle.
Australian Forestry Standard Chain Of Custody Certification
We have an AFS Chain Of Custody Certification. As we are a manufacturer of timber based products this was a necessary move. This provides our customers with an assurance that the wood or timber based product specified for a fit out has been sourced from a sustainably managed forest and tracked through the supply chain to ensure it ‘maintains an unbroken chain of custody’ (as per the requirements of the certification).
There is an annual audit done to retain certification so we are committed in the long run to ensure that we act responsibly with where we source our material and how this is treated throughout the supply chain.
Customers must specify their Chain of Custody requirements at the time of quotation and order to ensure the entire order process is tracked to meet requirements.
