As a business, we’re passionate about doing our bit for the environment. We believe that it’s important to protect our limited resources for future generations, and we’re making great strides towards making our business as sustainable as possible.
We want to be part of your carbon-neutral solution. From design and materials to sourcing and assembly, we drive the ethos of use and reuse. We’re constantly challenging ourselves to use innovative materials that minimise climate impact, resource depletion, and pollution, and we’re well on our way to making our products as green as we can.
The steelwork industry is determined to promote the material’s sustainable credentials, particularly the potential for reusing or recycling, but there are hurdles to be overcome.
Steel may not appear to be all that “green” at first glance because of its strength and durability. However last year an estimated 650 tonnes were recycled annually, making it the world’s most recycled industrial material. Some 93% of structural steel gets melted down and recycled, with 7% reused, according to a European Steel Association survey.
But the industry body says that while steel can theoretically be recycled infinitely, in practice it faces some limitations.
Some of the ways we’re making our business more sustainable include:
- Installing solar panels across our factory roof.
- Modernising our fleet of vehicles to ensure that they are as efficient as possible.
- Use and reuse of innovative materials to minimise climate impact, resource depletion, and pollution.
We can’t do it all on our own. We’re steadily building a network of partnerships for closed loop remanufacturing, repair and recycling.
As we strive to do better for the environment, we hope that you’ll join us on this journey. Together, we can make a difference. If you’re looking for a sustainable solution, we’re here to help.
