We strive to minimise our impact on the environment by reducing waste, minimising our carbon footprint and sourcing sustainable products whenever possible.
Wherever possible, site generated waste is recycled to minimise the amount of waste going to landfill. The largest quantity of waste generated by installing new floor coverings occurs during fitting, with an industry average waste of up to 20% or more. At Hillingdon Flooring Company we use the latest computer technology including computer controlled “Accu-cut” cutting machinery. Floor coverings are cut to room sizes requiring only “trimming to fit” on site, significantly reducing site generated waste.
We also work alongside our manufacturers and suppliers to ensure packaging is kept to a minimum. In our offices we reduce, recycle and reuse wherever we can.
Our delivery and distribution software optimises load capacity, which reduces our carbon footprint. Our fleet of trucks use the latest 'BLUETEC' diesel technology, producing the lowest emissions of any commercial vehicle currently available. Our field staff are located throughout the areas where we work, reducing unnecessary travelling to and from site.
Whenever possible, we use environmentally friendly, low emission adhesives and sub-floor preparation materials.
We have a strict policy on the procurement of timber products to ensure full FSC compliance to ensure ethical and sustainable timber sourcing. When we’re advising clients on product options, we ensure they are aware of the benefits of using sustainable products.
We are committed to monitoring our operations to make sure we continue minimise the impact we have on the environment.
