We are working towards a more green way of packaging our products; such that all our packaging is made of recycled, recyclable or reusable material.

Our newly designed packaging will carry a note on recycling of packaging materials hence spreading awareness among the consumers about the importance of recycling or reusing packaging materials whenever possible.

We plan to use used and shredded paper as a filler in our packaging and are striving to find the optimal level of packaging that is required to deliver a package to the end user without any damage.

The company has already taken steps to make the transport of the materials more sustainable. We plan to monitor our use of airfreight for international transport and will target to continue to reduce the airfreight.

At M. Marcus we recognize the importance of the environment; therefore we plan to Implement and integrate the environmental issue within our future policy decisions and also encouraging our suppliers to sustain similar policies.

We are regularly reviewing our operations and processes to ensure best use of resources, minimize waste and maximize the use of suitable recycled materials. We are also introducing regular reviews of all environmental aspects of the organization and continually working towards objectives and targets to ensure continual improvement.

M. Marcus Limited will continually monitor the environmental management system and take corrective action as required to ensure the aims and objectives are met and that the system delivers continual environmental improvements.

The company is committed to this policy and ISO14001 shares the responsibility to assist in the continual improvement of our environmental performance.

Recycled material on our product

M. Marcus produces products where the base metal is either Brass, Bronze, or Zinc. Where possible for Brass products, we purchase brass scrap which may be from discarded household products, or Industrial scrap.
Brass products account for over 60% of our sales, and we estimate that 70% of our brass sales are made of Recycled material. This percentage varies depending on the mix of items sold.

Policy Statement on Energy Minimisation

Conservation or minimisation of energy usage in the company is one of the main goals towards Energy Minimisation.
As the most effective way of minimising the use of energy is to conserve it, therefore at M.Marcus we have a plan of action that will help us set targets for the year to come.
We plan to review the energy usage every year and make these figures available to our key staff and would have scheduled brainstorming session with their involvement on how this process of energy conservation can be improved.

  • To introduce energy efficient lighting with sensors (Increase the use of day light wherever possible)
  • One of our biggest projects would be to harvest rainwater on our company’s facility area
  • We are striving towards a paperless way of working (all documents stored electronically)
  • Our packaging is made of recyclable material where possible - we are trying to eliminate the plastic used in our packaging and reduce the volume of packaging material used
  • We are exploring options of using shredded paper as our packaging material
