EYG Commercial is fully committed to reducing our impact on the environment and we demand that the suppliers and clients we work alongside do as much as they can to help reduce our carbon footprint.
To do this we ensure that materials are ethically sourced and recycling is an increasingly-important element of our overall activity.
We work closely with our clients to develop new ways of recycling and encourage customers to select from our increasing range of environmentally friendly and energy-efficient products.
The efficient performance of our products always offer long-term energy savings for the buildings where they are installed and its users, helping to reduce the demands for energy through glazing technology and engineering.
EYG Commercial already has the capacity to recycle aluminium, UPVC and glass – this has helped to reduce the amount of waste created by our 70,000sqft manufacturing facility to almost zero.
We are fully committed to using aluminium, which has an average recycling rate of 95% across the construction sector, because of its long life and superb qualities as a sustainable building material.
The UPVC we use is also thermoplastic, which means it can be repeatedly melted and reformed, allowing it to be recycled easily and cost effectively. It is also a perfect replacement for timber, which helps to protect the planet’s trees. However, all of the timber we use does come from sustainable sources.
EYG Commercial also has a Waste Carriers License for the transportation of waste to designated sites which aim to recycle as much material as possible.
With our entire manufacturing process undertaken at our main facility in Hull, and installations confined to the UK, EYG can minimise the emissions and fuel consumption associated with transportation or exporting.
All company vehicles are tracked and controlled logistically to reduce the number of road miles covered by any one vehicle, whilst all our company cars are powered by modern low-emission engines.
