Environmental Contribution 

We recognise the importance of environmental considerations and are committed to a policy of ongoing care for the environment and will take these into account at all stages of business planning, development, product distribution and marketing whilst continuing to produce high quality products to our customer’s specification and satisfaction.

Solon Security imports and distributes products with electrical components; therefore we ensure we are compliant with WEEE regulations. (The Waste Electronic and Electrical Equipment)

About WEEE Environmental Regulations

Since July 2007, a system has been operating in the UK to take-back, reuse or treat and recycle used electrical and electronic equipment (EEE). This system is intended to reduce the amount of untreated waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE) going to landfill and to ensure that what gets separately collected is dealt with properly. Further information about the WEEE system is available on our website here: www.environment-agency.gov.uk/weee

Green Printing

Solon Security supplies catalogues to all trade customers, producing almost 15,000 catalogues annually. We therefore strive to use the most environmentally friendly printers possible and we now use one of the UK’s only carbon neutral printers who hold an accreditation to the World Land Trust Carbon Balancing programme. This means that through investing in environmental projects they have offset all the carbon the printing of our catalogues produce. In 2012 they carbon balanced 184 tonnes of carbon which equates to saving 15,450m2 of critically threatened tropical forest.

Carbon balancing through the World Land Trust meets the challenge of climate change through projects that both offset carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and conserve biodiversity. More details on the World Land Trust Carbon Balanced programme are available at: www.carbonbalanced.org

They also hold an accreditation to the Forest Stewardship Council’s Chain of Custody (FSC COC) programme. This means we can be certain that papers and boards used to produce our printed matter can be traced back through the production chain to the sustainable source of the timber used in the wood pulp production.
