Our Journey To Carbon Neutral

To be carbon neutral across all our operations by 2040.

We believe businesses and individuals, whatever their size and influence, have a responsibility to act on global warming. At Anchor Magnets, we are committed to becoming a carbon neutral business to reduce our impact on the planet, helping us fulfil our obligations to the environment and the wider global community.

Carbon Neutral by 2040

The way to carbon neutrality

We have always believed conservation, managing waste levels and working smarter is at the heart of good business practice. Our major milestones have been...

Solar energy installed
2010

We invested in solar energy and energy conservation in 2010 and we continue to invest in renewables for our future energy needs.

The waste collected from our factory is converted into energy by our partners Veolia, and all of our packaging waste is also collected and recycled. Working with Sheffield Hallam University, our R&D team are researching and developing new products from product waste that is generated during the manufacturing process. This upcycling programme is the future of our waste management strategy.

Being conscious of our environmental responsibilities is at the centre of everything we do...

Energy Efficiency 

We have installed double glazing in all our factory and office windows.  We have also replaced all our lights to LED lighting where possible.

New Product Development 

By creating more lightweight products to reduce material consumption without sacrificing performance, and shipping more products per pallet makes distribution far more efficient, and therefore reducing our environmental impact. 

We have also designed and manufactured consumer products such as our warmroom® Magnetic Radiator Heat Saver to help households save on energy consumption.

Manufacturing 

We have removed all harmful chemicals from our products, and all of our products comply with European safety standards.  All products comply with EN71 part 3 and are REACH and RoHS approved.
