Sustainability and environmental impact has always been a high priority for UltraFloor. For many years, they have invested time and resources into protecting the environment and reducing their impact on it. Through various initiatives across the business, UltraFloor have successfully established sustainable development which impact positively on the environment, and as a consequence, the flooring industry.
UltraFloor pride themselves on their sustainability practices and what better testament than being awarded with an independent accreditation for 12 years.
ISO 14001 is an internationally recognised standard which ‘sets out the criteria for an environmental management system’. Every year, for the last 12 years, UltraFloor have had their environmental practices audited by an independent third party. This thorough audit investigates how their manufacturing processes impact on the environment and the steps they have taken to address this.
On this prestigious accreditation, Darren Gough, Operations Manager at Instarmac, commented: “The ISO standards allow UltraFloor to reflect a good level of professionalism and demonstrates best practice. This accreditation is a great accomplishment for us as it shows customers our intent to continually improve all aspects of our business and demonstrate how committed we are to providing sustainable solutions.”
UltraFloor continue to improve their environmental performance with the aim of creating a truly sustainable future. With this in mind, UltraFloor and their plastic bottle supplier, are trialling a newly developed 5 litre bottle which is made of 96% recycled kerbside material.
Are pallets taking up space in your yard? UltraFloor can take them back! Their experienced Drivers can collect your unwanted pallets and return them to Instarmac to be reused – reducing waste to landfill, freeing up valuable space in your yard or storage area and helping to further protect the environment.
What’s more, all collections and deliveries are made on UltraFloor’s state-of-the-art privately owned fleet, all which now feature AdBlue. AdBlue is an additive which is used alongside diesel to reduce mono-nitrogen oxide emissions produced from the exhausts of vehicles. AdBlue transforms the harmful mono-nitrogen toxins in diesel into nitrogen and water vapour reducing the negative impact vehicle emissions have on the environment.
These are just some of the initiatives UltraFloor have successfully implemented. Others include intelligent lighting, a great water system, the use of solar energy and climate control across their entire building. Furthermore, since 2014, UltraFloor has boasted ‘zero waste to landfill’ which means 100% of waste is recycled.
