Empteezy Ltd is the only company in its sector to hold three ISO accreditations – ISO9001, ISO14001 and ISO18001 – covering quality management, health and safety, and environmental management. This hopefully indicates our commitment to complying with health and safety legislation, environmental standards and the control of hazardous substances. Our product offering includes spill control and spill prevention products, and we work closely with marine, industrial and military sectors amongst others. Our aim is to minimise the risks of environmental damage and liability whilst reducing costs and improving efficiency.

As part of our mission to offer our customers solutions that help them and respect the environment we have recently worked with Carbon Footprint Ltd to assess the carbon-savings we can pass on to our customers and are delighted to offer carbon savings of up to 40% across our full range of absorbents which are available in, oil selective, general purpose and chemical formats. 

If you would like the opportunity to find out more about our environmental strategies, and how our range of lower-carbon absorbents can contribute to lowering emissions, our network of field-based managers around the UK – between them they have more than 100 years’ experience in the sector – will be happy to answer any questions you have either over the phone or during a site visit.

As part of its efforts to tackle climate change the UK government has established the world’s first legally binding climate change target: to reduce the UK’s 1990 levels of greenhouse gas emissions by at least 80% by 2050. Britain is the first country to make it compulsory for large companies to report on their environmental impact making clear the major role of industry in reaching that target. 

Regulations took effect this April requiring the 1,600 or so companies listed on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange to capture and report on their emissions.  Companies were required to report on their own environmental impact,  including areas such as waste-management, product distribution and production processes as well as indirect emissions associated with the suppliers they use.

While this new legislation focuses on FTSE 100 companies, it is likely that if successful the use of mandatory reporting will be rolled out to medium sized FTSE 350 companies.  

The steps taken by large and medium sized businesses to reduce their carbon impact will undoubtedly have an effect on the smaller companies who work with or supply them.

Many forward-thinking small and medium sized businesses are already looking at their own impact on the environment and are taking steps as part of their corporate social responsibility to reduce their carbon footprint in preparedness for a move towards a more sustainable economic model.  The move to mandatory environmental reporting highlights the benefits for all companies of using their own environmental performance to differentiate themselves from others in their industry and increase their competitive advantage.

According to The Carbon Trust; ‘The most significant activity that contributes to Green House Gas production is the combustion of fossil fuels; transport represents a major part of the challenge to reducing carbon emissions’.  As both a manufacturer and supplier of environmental protection products we at Empteezy have kept our supply chains short, and with manufacturing bases in the UK and mainland Europe we have reduced the emissions associated with distribution.
