Welcome to our environmental resources centre and learn how WT Author encourages sustainable practices.
Each product is assembled around a highly-reliable movement to give you the ability to maintain the watch with us directly or with another service.
Our purpose-built workshop is located in a disused Royal Mail sorting office where we build & continue to fully service every product that is sold by WT Author.
Reusability & recyclability
Our packaging has been engineered to be 100% reusable & recyclable, as well as providing a lightweight solution to reduce wasteful distribution.
We endeavour to use recycled stock at every possible opportunity.
The inherent beauty of this repurposed material is adorned by our own exclusive artwork.
Cardboard is the world’s sustainable packaging choice. It is recyclable, renewable, reusable and biodegradable.
With a recycling rate of over 80%, corrugated cardboard has the best UK recycling record of any packaging material.
This rate saves an area the size of Greater London from landfill every 4 months.
One size fits all approaches on boxes are fast becoming a thing of the past.
Well designed ‘right sized’ packaging provides maximum protection with minimal use of material.
The right box choices eliminates material waste, as well as the costs of storing and transporting an unnecessarily large pack.
Well designed packs reduce product damages which in turn saves on returns meaning less wastage.
Environmentally friendly factories
Throughout the value chain, including its suppliers, the Citizen group aims to create a sustainable production process. Miyota Saku
Throughout the value chain, including its suppliers, the Citizen group aims to create a sustainable production process.
Miyota Saku Factory was established as a “green park” to help reduce the effects on the environment.
About 26,000 plants of 110 varieties have been planted on the facility grounds in order to help maintain & lower ground surface temperatures during all seasons of the year.
What’s more “green” micro-climate zones also prevent heat build up & allow for usage of natural rainwater for the growing plants.
The site also incorporates LED lighting & high-efficiency compressors to further reduce electricity & gas consumption.
Moreover, the building’s smart environmental controls also utilize the heat exhaust & cooling for a more efficient air-conditioning system that contributes to lowering CO₂ emissions.
Sustainable fulfilment and distribution
With the UK’s largest ‘Feet on the Street’ network of over 85,000 postmen & women Royal Mail already has the lowest reported carbon emissions per parcel of any major UK delivery company.
But they want to go further, taking action to continually reduce emissions, reduce waste & improve the air quality in the communities in which we operate.
This includes investing in technologies such as electric vehicles, drones, alternative fuel trucks & energy improvements to their estate.
They are committed to providing sustainable services for our Collectors & communities as we deliver against our environmental ambitions.
