Exploring our commitment to protecting the environment

29,000 trees! 


If you follow our social media pages (which you definitely should be!) you may have noticed that we regularly post updates on our ‘tree count’.  The tally refers to our ‘Tree Planting Promise’, a commitment to planting trees for every instrument sold. We’ve been planting trees for every model of flame photometer sold since May 2021 and have currently planted 29,000! 


We’re very proud to be the first flame photometer manufacturer to do this and the initiative reflects our commitment to sustainability and protecting the environment. 


Our green goals 


In addition to our ‘Tree Planting Promise’, we have a series of green goals that we aim to achieve, these include; 


  • Using LED lighting with efficient heating systems across our manufacturing facility. ​

  • Utilising only 'green' energy suppliers our electricity is supplied from 100% renewable sources and our natural gas consumption is 100% carbon neutral.

  • Environmentally friendly packaging created from pre-recycled content or utilising materials that can be easily recycled across the globe. ​​

  • The use of paper based packaging tape to reduce our plastic consumption and allow our cardboard boxes to be easily recycled.​​

  • Product design considerations such as recyclability and life cycle assessments are taken into account at the development phase of our new products. 


With a world-wide service including dedicated sales and technical support offices in Europe, the Americas and the Middle East, being as sustainable as possible means juggling a lot of logistics and instilling an environmentally friendly ethos and culture across our entire workforce. 


Making our blue more green  


One of the ways we instil this ethos is to make sure it starts at the manufacturing and production part of the process. As such we have our own in house recycling scheme for factory-generated waste. 


This and the other activities outlined in this article ensure that our employees and the company are doing all we can to help protect and preserve the environment.
