Plastic pollution is causing huge damage to our natural environment. While plastic waste isn’t Virgin Media’s biggest environmental impact, we too want to do our bit.
Today, on World Environment Day, we’re mobilising our people to get behind our established plan to reduce plastic across our business. Our plan tackles the most common uses of plastic, not just single-use, in our operations and products.
The plan has three areas of focus;
We’ve already made good progress with some of our initiatives
We’ve got plenty more activity underway, from removing plastic uniform packaging to cutting down plastic use in our canteens and across our logistics network. Virgin Media is also actively working towards achieving zero waste to landfill in our offices, having already achieved a zero waste to landfill logistics supply chain.
There’s plenty more to do to tackle the plastic problem, but we’re focussed on playing our part and tackling the most common uses of unnecessary plastic.
