Sustainability

Sustainability is at the forefront of what we do and central to how and what we supply.

mission

True commitment

We’re on a mission to minimise our impact on the environment by creating practical solutions that don’t compromise safety. Through initiatives focussed on removing single-use plastics and switching to renewable fuels, we’re on the path to a more sustainable future.

Internal changes are only the start

Our road to Net Zero

We’re working in partnership with suppliers, customers, and manufacturers to influence the entire value chain. Our 'Scope 3' journey means we will look beyond general emissions, taking a closer look at how our goods and services impact the environment.

It's in our DNA

We believe a good supply chain is a sustainable supply chain. That's why reducing waste and carbon emissions is naturally at the core of what we do. And our unique approach will help customers fulfil their environmental commitments and enhance sustainability credentials. We also work with our partners and manufacturers to prioritise sustainability in the supply chain and give more sustainable choices to customers.

EV vehicles

Local deliveries are made in our electric van whenever we can. For wider deliveries, our chosen parcel network is DPD, who commits to making their parcel delivery carbon neutral. We have also installed EV charging points at our office and distribution centre locations, and we have EVs and hybrids in our fleet.

In the Office

Renewable energy

We source all our electricity from renewable sources across all sites we operate, and ensure our Gas is carbon offset. Partnering with leading companies in renewable energy, we also support the sector and work with partners on innovative safety and PPE solutions for unique hazardous environments.
