Corporate Social Responsibility, Environment & Ethics
Domino strives to uphold best practices in the workplace by: regularly reviewing health and safety, maintaining high employment standards, and engaging our diverse workforce.
Domino's policy is to comply with all competition and trade regulation laws, promote ethical behavior throughout our value chain, and treat all suppliers and subcontractors fairly and honestly under clear terms of engagement.
Domino currently meets the Silver standard of EcoVadis’ 21 Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) indicators for reducing risk, driving innovation and fostering transparency and trust with our trading partners. The EcoVadis pillars by which Domino standards are measured consist of: Sustainable Procurement, Labor and Human Rights, Ethics, and the Environment. Domino’s scores are above average in each category.
Similarly, as a Grade B member of Sedex’s (Supplier Ethical Data Exchange) Manufacture of Machinery and Equipment category, Domino drives supply chain improvements from several global sites. Domino’s processes are included in the organization’s regular independent ethical audits.
Domino values not only its local neighbors, but international communities as well.
In 2017, Domino established a worldwide employee participation program to support the efforts of SOS Children's Villages International. Its beneficiary was the Bhimtal Family Strengthening Program in India – providing nutritional, educational and health support as well as vocational training, career counseling sessions and job placement support.
In the UK, Domino supports educational programs in STEM subjects for school-age students.
The 2017 installation of a Combined Heat and Power Unit at Domino’s Cambridge HQ is reducing the company’s CO2 footprint by over 22.8 tons annually. Similarly, a sustainable lighting system will cut annual energy usage and CO2 emissions by 42,000 kg.
Domino's commitment to excellence is reflected in the ISO 9000 series of quality assurance certified manufacturing plants in the UK, US and China, as well as subsidiaries in Spain and France. Wiedenbach Apparatebau, a German Domino Group company, has also achieved the ISO 9001 status.
In addition, Domino's printer plant in China and fluid factories in the UK, China and the US have received ISO 14001 accreditation for environmental management and improvement. These accreditations were awarded as a result of continued achievements to reduce the plants’ electricity consumption without reducing production and for cutting plant waste through recycling.
Domino launched its first 4-color N600i digital inkjet label press in 2012 operating at speeds of up to 75 meters a minute with a 600 dpi native resolution. The next-generation, 7-color N610i with Domino’s highly opaque white, orange and violet inks was introduced in 2014.
In 2018, 64 employees across the Bar Hill HQ and Liverpool sites had served 25 or more years with the company, which represents nearly 8% of our UK workforce.
The technology and range of industrial printers and coders in the Domino Group portfolio include: continuous inkjet, scribing laser, fiber laser, Drop-on-Demand valve jet, Drop-on-Demand piezo, binary inkjet, thermal transfer overprinting, thermal inkjet, and Print & Apply labeling.
