Hurst Doors are continuing their efforts to cut their carbon footprint and become a greener, more sustainable business.
The Hull-based firm has recycled 300 tonnes of uPVC over a 12-month period as part of ongoing attempts to reduce landfill waste to an absolute minimum.
It’s just one part of the company’s broader commitment to sustainability, which has recently seen it adopt Mercedes Benz 250E hybrid vehicles for its sales team, helping cut its emissions from 132g per kilometre to just 32g.
“At Hurst, we’re passionately committed to being a responsible manufacturer – and in the twenty-first century, striving towards ever-greater sustainability is a vital part of that,” comments Sales Director Mark Atkinson.
“uPVC is an excellent fenestration material that offers outstanding longevity, thermal performance, and ease of maintenance – but equally, we know that plastic pollution is a major threat to wildlife and the ecosystem more generally.
“That’s why we’re determined to recycle as much of the waste uPVC we produce as possible, we’re confident that we’re heading in the right direction.”
In addition to saving uPVC from landfill, Hurst also recycles cardboard, paper, toners, lead, wood, aluminium, polystyrene, polythene, glass and old office equipment like computers.
Similarly, its head office is powered by a green energy supplier.
“We’re pleased with the progress we’ve made so far, but we want to go much further in our sustainability efforts in the months and years ahead,” Mark continues.
“We’ll continue to identify areas we can reduce our environmental impact, and keep working to towards recycling as much of our waste as practically possible.”
