Our Carbon Footprint

How did we do it?
All lighting and electrical devices (with the exception of our server) are
powered down nightly to conserve energy. Where any device has an energy saving
feature this is enabled. Wherever possible Flashbay avoids the use of
incandescent light bulbs.
Flashbay has a policy of upgrading our dated technology with newer energy
efficient models, improving performance, energy consumption and efficiency.
Flashbay engages in recycling of both production materials and commercial
waste in all our locations worldwide.
Flashbay shipments are batched and processed in bulk to minimise the number
of delivery trips required to move your order from our locations to your final
Flashbay has chosen United Parcel Service (UPS) for shipping orders to our customers. To help reduce our carbon footprint we chose a courier who actively strives to minimise their impact on the environment (Read more about UPS and the environment)
Flashbay offers products manufactured using recycled materials, where the customer shares our concern for the environment and requests these.
Flashbay endeavours to use packaging made from recycled materials.
All Flashbay employees are encouraged to mirror the company's values through recycling and conserving energy.
All Flashbay employees travel to and from work using either public transport
or by walking, keeping our carbon footprint with respect to staff travel as low
We encourage all our customers and suppliers to share our environmental
concern and implement their own policies and practices to minimise the impact
that they have on the environment.
