✓ Carbon Footprint and Sustainability
We have 3 areas where we control and can pass on our reduced carbon footprint and sustainability:
- As one of the very few UK POS Display accessory manufacturers, Alplas is working towards a carbon neutral future with projects aimed at energy reduction and maximised re-cycling. Alplas has adopted an energy efficiency programme including things such as PIR sensor controlled LED lighting), the near 100% re-cycling of our polymer waste and both in-house and waste stream recycling of packaging.
- Most of our products are made right here in Essex and some of these have equivalents that other companies source around the world, particularly the Far East. UK/EU production for UK/EU product use dramatically reduces the supply journey (by 5000+ miles), reducing carbon footprint emissions.
- The greatest impact we can have in helping reduce the wider carbon footprint is with the products we place upon the market. Alplas is continually researching, testing and adopting sustainable polymers as well as avoiding unsustainable and problematic polymers as follows:
