As a company, Donald Russell has always placed great importance on protecting the environment around us. The clean air, abundant fresh water and natural pastures of our corner of Scotland are instrumental in producing some of the finest products on the planet. We could never have built our successful business without them, and we consider ourselves to have a duty of care to help maintain and protect these priceless attributes.
As part of our commitment to holding the Royal Warrant, we need to be able to demonstrate very clearly that we meet the stringent environmental and sustainability standards set as a condition of being awarded this honour. We are proud to have not only met, but exceeded, these standards on our most recent reapplication. It has reinforced our company-wide commitment to being at the forefront of our industry in this regard.
We have a member of staff appointed as our ‘Green Champion’, who maintains an overview of our actions in this area, as well as investigating and suggesting new initiatives which could improve our environmental performance. We will continue to work towards ensuring that our sustainability credentials are the very best that they can be within the demands of contemporary business.
The pages linked below set out the policies and actions that Donald Russell implements to minimise our impact on the natural environment. We are aware that we can never rest on our laurels, and that there is always more that could be actioned with further effort or expenditure. To this end, the document is divided into sections on what we currently achieve, and what we aspire to achieve in the longer term.
