Sealy environmental footprint

Sealy United Kingdom attach maximum importance to matters concerning the environment.  Our policy is to meet and where practical, exceed all relevant regulatory requirements and to minimise any adverse environmental effects caused as a result of the company’s activities or products.

We will continually assess the environmental impact of our operations and through minimising the use of materials, resources and energy, we will reduce our wastage to the lowest practical level whilst pursuing a ‘zero to landfill’ policy.

Products will be designed in such a way as to minimise their environmental effects in production, usage and disposal.  Consideration will always be given to the environmental effects of our raw materials sourcing and wherever possible we will use materials and components that are renewable and that can be recycled.

Through strategic planning, we will aim to minimise the environmental effect of new developments by the inclusion of environmental considerations in investment decisions.

Employee involvement in environmental matters is encouraged at all levels and will be promoted through training, communication and a constant reappraisal of working methods and techniques.

Our environmental management system provides for the setting and publication of our objectives and targets and it is our aim to secure a continual improvement in environmental performance.

The Board of Directors is committed to the implementation of this policy and will give full backing to all those authorised to carry it out. This policy will be reviewed periodically.
