Updates on our journey
What we’ve done already towards net zero
So far, we’ve embedded sustainability into our operations and are driving forward a number of
other projects and partnerships behind the scenes.
We're more energy efficient:
Invested in an electric and hybrid fleet of company vehicles with multiple charging points at our HQ
Switched to the most energy efficient carrier network, leading to lower energy consumption per box, and movement to electric vehicles
Moved our headquarters to a more energy efficient building, giving us double the space with only half the energy consumption
Smart technologies, including LED lighting and motion sensors to reduce energy consumption and light pollution
We have switched to UK generated, 100% renewable energy
totalling 107,205,231kWH, over the next five years across our sites
Carbon Reduction & Recycling
Measure the entire product range
Develop traffic light
systems for measurement

Eco Logistics Solutions
Further Develop Product Recycling Solutions
Working closely with our customers, partners, and suppliers to use more eco packaging – flow wrap fully biodegrades within just 24hrs of disposal.
Switching all cartons and UIS certification sheets to a recycled paper, lighter-weight cartons.
We are continuing to innovate to improve product durability and increase our use of eco-conscious materials and biodegradable products. We are also committed to the reduction and phasing out of unnecessary packaging, to minimise waste through precise management of production lines and quality control.
Key environmental initiatives currently underway from Skytec, in partnership with our suppliers, include:
Ensuring that user information sheets and instruction information is printed on recycled paper
Working with a major supplier to start using thinner cartons in order to reduce the overall product weight
Replaced the plastic polybags used in packaging for the majority of products with a sustainable alternative
