An analysis of the packaging materials used for the product at each stage of the supply chain, focusing on recyclability, reduction of materials, and the use of environmentally friendly packaging solutions.

A detailed look at the logistics involved in transporting raw materials and delivering final products. This includes efforts to minimise carbon emissions, the use of eco-friendly transportation methods, and efficiency in logistics.

We're ambitious and ready for change



We've achieved a significant environmental milestone by becoming carbon neutral. Our investment in solar technology has exceeded expectations, generating up to ten times the electricity we need. This surplus isn't just an achievement for us; it's a contribution to the wider grid, providing clean, renewable energy to the community. This initiative significantly reduces our carbon footprint and demonstrates our commitment to sustainable practices.

We engaged an environmental researcher to analyse all our products, providing a CO₂e emission rating for each based on their material and composition. This detailed analysis helps us understand the environmental impact of our products better, allowing us to make more informed decisions about materials and manufacturing processes to minimise our carbon footprint.

As the first supplier to offer Carbon Neutral products through emission-based offsetting, we've taken a pioneering step in environmental responsibility. In 2021, our customers contributed significantly to this effort by offsetting 125 tonnes of CO₂e. This achievement reflects our commitment to reducing environmental impact and leading the way in sustainable practices in our industry.
