Our Carbon Reduction Strategy

Here at Helapet we are passionate, committed and actively engaging in several initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint.

It is the responsibility of this generation to implement a sustainable framework for the future. On an ongoing basis we assess each area of the business with a view to reducing our carbon footprint now.

We continue to look at all areas of our business with the core values that we have always held close to us. Applying Six Sigma Principles, a set of methodologies and tools used to improve business processes by reducing defects and errors, minimising variation and increasing quality and efficiency.

We continuously review our all areas of our business processes and implement initiatives to further our contribution towards climate control.

“This is the best time to push forward, we continue to push for improvement.”

- Managing Director, Tony Phelps

  • 100% recyclable Adhesive Paper tape has replaced the plastic tape we previously used.
  • Pallet wrap film - 55% recycled content.

Helapet Initiatives:

  • Sourced Eco Sharps Bins - each bin contains at least 40% recycled materials.

Energy Efficiency Improvements:

  • Passive Infrared Sensors (PIRs)fitted in some areas of the building.
  • Installation of new cleanroom air handling units which are more energy efficient.

Our future plans

Our partners

We have chosen to work with environmentally responsible partners:

Our preferred courier service guarantee that every parcel that they deliver is carbon neutral.

We choose our energy supplier because they help to achieve commercial and sustainability goals through their own renewable source electricity.

Our suppliers endeavor to reduce their environmental impact including carbon footprint, sustainable sourcing, recycling and reducing waste.
