Sustainability at WAZP

Sustainability at WAZP

Sustainability is paramount for us at WAZP. It is central to our thinking in every aspect of the work that we do, so that we can contribute to a more sustainable future and a safer planet for everyone. Sustainability is effectively built into the WAZP DNA by doing more with less, propelling operational excellence through a no-waste culture within the business. We achieve this goal by being creative, efficient and resourceful. Not only does this mean less waste, but it also means increased efficiency at all stages in the supply chain for our clients. We encourage all our employees to suggest sustainable solutions to our everyday operations.

We are reminded daily of our love of nature and why we persevere in improving our sustainability efforts by the place our team calls home, Ireland.

& Waste Reduction

In Additive Manufacturing, the material that is not used during each print is traditionally disposed of.  This had a negative impact on resource and waste management.

Since 2015,  WAZP has implemented a process for re-using this previously ‘waste’ material in the new production runs which directly resulted in a reduction is waste, better utilization of resources, and a more sustainable product for our clients.
