Renishaw's approach to sustainability

Renishaw's Manufacturing Director explains how sustainability is a key part of their strategy, evidenced by being awarded the Carbon Trust Waste Standard in 2013

To achieve the Carbon Trust Waste Standard, Renishaw has demonstrated an overall movement up the waste hierarchy, increasing rates of reuse and recycling. The company was also certified to the Carbon Trust Standard for carbon emissions.

Renishaw is also at the forefront of research into systems that will in the future help to limit industrial waste. It is the UK’s only manufacturer of a metal-based additive manufacturing (‘3D printing’) machine which allows items to be produced by building them up using the exact amount of resources required, rather than having to create components out of larger pieces of material using subtractive manufacturing processes.

Join us at this event and hear from Gareth Hankins, the company’s Manufacturing Director.

A site tour will also be available to bring to life Renishaw’s approach to sustainability.
