LDL steps up its environmental strategy

LDL has stepped up its commitment to the environment with the introduction of recyclable drink cans and a new cycle shelter.

Managing director Simon Ogden believes “it’s all about continually making little steps to pave the way for big change”.

The components company has pledged to go plastic-free by 2020 by phasing in recyclable cardboard packaging and this new scheme further consolidates its drive to reduce the company’s environmental impact.

The company has replaced single-use plastic bottles throughout the business with canned water from CanO.

Ogden added: “A single plastic bottle takes 700 years to dissolve and, with up to 80% of oceanic pollution being plastic, we feel we have a moral obligation to drive plastic out of this industry.”

He is a keen cyclist, so LDL has been promoting the Cycle to Work scheme and has built a new bike shelter for its staff and clients.

Said Ogden: “Cycling has been a huge part of my life for several years now. I commute to work by bike as often as I can and want to encourage everyone at LDL to do the same. It’s good for us and for the environment. What more reason do you need?”
