  • Our dedicated Sustainability Team will regularly set and monitor the achievement of environmental objectives in order to promote continuous improvement
  • We actively encourage waste reduction, re-use and recycling in our day-to-day activities

  • All members of the team are included in suggestions, research and development for new initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint and create more sustainable ways of going about our business

What have we actually done?

Aluminium and gas are the biggest contributors of CO2 at Alitex. Through smarter design and reduced wastage, we are able to control the impact, currently 32% of aluminium comes from recycled waste.

CO2 Reduction

  • The insulation of well oven has saved approximately 22Te of CO2 per year
  • The new compressor produces only 50% of the old machines CO2, saving approximately 17Te of CO2 per year
  • Our new paint plant uses less gas and less wastage of paint, reducing our footprint by 12%

Waste

  • Aluminium waste, where possible, is reused for the manufacture of new products
  • Recycling by all departments is in place, reducing our previous non-recyclable waste by 75% - this has results in the number of skips filled with waste being reduced from 30 to 11 each year

Vehicle Fleet

  • We ensure that any vehicle used is the most efficient and suitable for the job at hand
  • As part of our commitment to supporting low carbon initiative, we purchase cars with low carbon emissions, long service intervals and made from a high level of recyclable materials

General day-to-day life

  • We have solar panels on our factory roof
  • Our Biomass boiler fuels our paint plant and office heating
  • The introduction of the Alitex allotment in 2010 has created a glut of homegrown produce
  • We have vast rain water tanks holding 20,000 litres which are used for watering the grounds, reducing our demand for main-supply water
