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.

Increased local production
through substantial investment in UK facilities. As well as supporting local communities and creating jobs, this has a significant impact on our carbon footprint by massively reducing the travel distance of products.
Cut Waste in Our Core Local Manufacturing Process
Reduced the volume of material used in our core outer packaging. Recycled all core on-site materials.
Invested over £10m
in research and development of new technologies. Reducing the amount of plastic and energy required to produce our products.

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

Plastic reduction

Working closely with our customers, partners, and suppliers to use more eco packaging – flow wrap fully biodegrades within just 24hrs of disposal.

Flow wrap

Switching all cartons and UIS certification sheets to a recycled paper, lighter-weight cartons.

Continued innovation

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:
