Small changes for big results


As well as large scale innovative ideas to reduce Norbord's impact on the environment, smaller scale behaviours are practiced in order to reduce our footprint as much as possible.

The objective at all sites is to recycle as many materials as possible including paper, plastics and cardboard - even milk container tops are collected for charity to be recycled. Effort is made to switch off lights and PCs, printers and monitors are shut down and chargers turned off when practical to do so.

Keeping travel to a minimum, especially air travel, is a challenge for any business and being located from one end of Britain to the other, and also in Belgium, ensures that this remains a strong focus. To reduce travel we make extensive use of telephone conferencing, plus this keeps the wear and tear on our colleagues to a minimum.
