Steps Towards a Better Future
Strides in Sustainability
Here at University Games we are making positive strides in improving our environmental impact as we continue with our aim to be the most environmentally friendly games and puzzle company in the UK. Our commitment is to remove ALL shrink wrap and other single use plastic from all our products wherever possible and to ensure that all our outer packaging and product packaging are fully recycled and fully recyclable wherever possible. We will continuously work towards getting greener every day!
- Moving their fleet over to Electric Vehicles
- Continual rollout of electric vehicles is part of our company car strategy. Electric forklifts and associated warehousing handline equipment utilised at our warehouse facilities wherever feasible.
- Using Solar Power
- At our new 200,000 sq ft Southampton warehouse, roof mounted solar panels have been installed, which is believed to be the largest in the UK. The panels also more than double the existing solar power generation on the port at Southampton.
- Making Transport Efficient
- Ensure that the maximum amount of space per vehicle is occupied whilst selecting the optimum route therefore reducing the amount of emissions.
- Minimising Waste
- A full review of the waste strategy will be conducted to ensure that we have the best single stream waste solutions for the business to ensure the maximum efficiency in recycling and a reduction in our waste to landfill.
As Banksy remains anonymous we will take the usual artists royalty we would pay any other artist for their work and, if not claimed by the artist each year, we will donate to a charity to help the homeless.
This year we have chosen to support Centrepoint, a charity that supports homeless youth and aims to end Youth Homelessness by 2037.
As of 6th December 2022 our initial donation to Centrepoint was £2800. We look forward to adding to this donation at the end of the year and sharing our final donation amount for 2022 soon!
