R E D U C I N G E N V I R O NM E N TA L I M PA C T
All Royal Selangor products are designed to last and be passed down from one generation to another. We consider the whole lifespan of the product. Environmental impact is a factor which is carefully considered in all decision making when planning a new product. Our efforts at the different stages can be summarised as:
The best example of our efforts to help the environment post-consumer is the current change in packaging. We are implementing a massive design change to work towards a goal of zero non-biodegradable content in our packaging. Eliminating plastic foam is the obvious environmental advantage, but also adapting a flat pack box format also helps with reducing transport emissions when we get our boxes from the supplier as we can fit multiple more boxes in a single delivery.
Reuse and Recycle
We look to our old inventory before sourcing for new components when creating new products.Modern prototyping is a lot eco-friendlier and pewter has the added advantage that we can melt down our old prototypes and use the material to make new ones. Pewter shavings, discontinued items, items which do not meet quality standards and cannot be repaired are melted and re-used to make new products.Old moulds have been used to create sculptural artwork at the Royal Selangor Visitor Centre.
We try wherever possible to source local and ethical components and raw materials. Examples of this include getting all our ceramics parts sourced locally to avoid the impact of transport from overseas.
Client Care & Repair Service
Our client care & repair service ensure that our products can last a lifetime and even passed from generation to generation.
