OUR CSR POLICY
A LOOK BEHIND THE RED TAB
Download Environment Policy
Unlike many manufacturers we produce the majority of our items from within Europe, therefore massively reducing the carbon footprint through reducing transport, in comparison to importing from the Far East.
As partway through our 'CLOSER TO HOME' campaign we are already seeing thousands of transport miles saved through shifting our main product lines closer to home.
Aside from this it also means we can easily monitor child labour and ISO9001 standards, and it also makes us more flexible in terms of production and development.
CAREFULLY CHOSEN COURIERS
We use FedEx as our primary courier in the UK due to their commitment to carbon neutrality.
FedEx aims to attain carbon-neutral operations by the year 2040. To achieve this goal, the company plans to allocate an initial investment of over $2 billion across three primary areas: sustainable energy, carbon sequestration, and the transition of their parcel force vehicles to electric vehicles.
An estimated 97% of our outer packaging is recyclable.
The impact of non-recyclable packing is of concern to us, hence our ongoing actions to maximize the use of recyclable materials.
