CNM CARBON MANAGEMENT POLICY:
At CNM our carbon management policy is a vital part of our overall strategy to ensure we manage our business more efficiently. The way we operate at CNM has to go hand-in-hand with the way we manage our day to day business and at the same time this simply and naturally reduces our carbon footprint.

HOW DO WE ACHIEVE OUR CARBON MANAGEMENT STRATEGY:

  • We quickly establish trends to all of our product range throughout the year!
  • We then optimize our purchasing and stocking system to meet the demands of these trends!


The demand for all the products that we supply from CNM has a natural cycle throughout the year and by accurately gathering this data and using it to our advantage influences the way CNM purchase stock. This will in turn reduce unnecessary deliveries / stock handling of our goods and also ensure we achieve a higher market performance over less-prepared competitors.

RoHS COMPLIANCE: (Restriction of Use of Hazardous Substances)
CNM are involved with the sale and distribution of a wide range of manufactured electrical and non electrical goods and it is our responsibility to ensure that we as a business DO NOT distribute products that contain levels of hazardous substances as listed in the RoHS regulations.

Ignorance is not considered a viable excuse for RoHS non-compliance at CNM, so it is important that we as a business only use reputable suppliers that ensure that the products we supply to you are within the RoHS regulations.

Regulation Limits / Banned Substances: lead, cadmium, polybrominated biphenyl (PBB), mercury, hexavalent chromium, and polybrominated diphenyl ether (PBDE) flame retardants – in new electronic and electric equipment.

ACHIEVE ISO14001:2004:
In order to achieve these aims and to ensure continual improvement of our environmental performance we will work to implement and maintain an environmental system to the ISO14001:2004 standard.
