Dams have recently invested heavily in new packaging technology and processes to reduce the dependence on cardboard packaging. The aim is to avoid the environmental expense of replacing damaged goods whilst minimising the environmental expense of waste packaging. Dams source all MFC board from an approved supplier that is one of the only UK manufacturers who utilises up to 96% recycled timber within the production process. To avoid using landfill sites and incinerators, waste products like cardboard, paper, wood and plastic are separated for recycling. Dams' factory uses waste wood to power the heating system and this reduces the need to burn polluting fossil fuels. To reduce waste even further DAMS have worked closely with suppliers to reduce the amount of component and finished product packaging arriving at the company’s factories. This reduces waste and the overall weight of the packaged product which in turn helps to reduce fuels costs and the carbon footprint of finished products, during transit. At the end of every desk’s working life, Dams can recycle the product thanks to a policy of working with ecologically sound materials and suppliers.
