• Exertis highlights progress with sustainability initiatives

        • Exertis had highlighted World Environment Day today (5th June) with some of the initiatives it has undertaken to continue its drive to improving business sustainability.

          World Environment Day is one of the biggest events recognising how people and organisations can help protect the planet from different environmental challenges such as plastic and air pollution.

          Alan Lynch, Exertis, Global Logistics Director said, “sustainability is a key focus for Exertis and the business has been working on projects across the Group with third party suppliers, vendors and customers to optimise packaging, reduce material waste, support the circular economy and increase our dropship services. By developing innovative solutions, we not only reduce our carbon footprint but positively impact the environment.”

          Key initiatives include:

          • Working in partnership with Macfarlane Packaging. The first phase of the project has seen Exertis reduce the stretch wrap and pallet top sheets material by 24 per cent – a total of 18 tonnes of plastic material at its three logistic centres in the UK. This equates to 45 tonnes of CO₂e emission reduction in the plastic material process. The second phase of the project is underway and initial findings predict the removal of a further 19 tonnes of plastic material – reducing material manufacturing CO₂ emissions by 36 tonnes. The third stage will see the process implemented across other Exertis facilities across Europe
          • Redesign of packaging for own-brand products at Hypertec, eliminating plastic and using recyclable materials
          • Reducing the size of the packaging, removing single-use plastic, using more sustainable and eco-friendly materials and educating the end-user on recycling at Kondor
          • Supporting the circular economy with the refurbishment and repair of mobile devices at MTR
          • Increasing its drop-ship services to retailers and resellers, thereby cutting down the number of time goods have to be moved. Exertis has increased its service in the UK by 73 per cent (March to May YOY), delivering more than 611,000 units
