Environmental Responsibility

In 2012, Alloga UK attained ISO 14001:2004 certification for our environmental management system. Alloga UK is determined that the highest standards of excellence are developed in its management of environmental impacts, and we are currently working towards certification to the new ISO 14001:2015 standard.

Minimising our effects on the surrounding environment remains at the heart of our operating strategy, and continuous review of our key priorities will ensure that we focus on the intelligent use of natural resources to help to reduce our impact on the environment.

We are committed to the principle of environmental sustainability and recognise that we have a responsibility to comply with all relevant laws, and act with integrity towards our stakeholders.

As part of our commitment to this, we have developed 10 key environmental principles to provide guidance on the way we identify and manage our impacts on the environment. These can be found in our Environmental Policy.

We has also published1 our 2016 Environmental Report.

Demonstrable improvements we are making

All our vehicles are fitted with Euro 6 engines to provide the best efficiency and minimise our environmental impact.

We have made major investments in recycling and waste management facilities. We bale cardboard, plastics and paper and recycle wood and metals. This is backed up with a regime of elimination and reuse, with no waste going to landfill. Instead, it is sent to a Waste to Energy plant.

We are targeting all areas of the business with environmental improvements, which range from lower mission road vehicles to high efficiency refrigeration compressors in our cold stores.

In line with our ISO 14001 certification we are committed to a programme of measured continuous improvements.

 

Over the last 12 months, over 70 per cent of our general waste has been sorted and recycled.

In the latter part of 2016, it was confirmed by our waste management partner that Alloga UK are currently zero-to-landfill.

All non-recyclable waste streams are now sent to an Energy Recovery Facility in Sheffield, generating power for homes.
