For a Greener Future
We’re working hard to minimise our environmental impact. By sourcing sustainable energy and materials, cutting waste, recycling more, driving greener practices and setting ourselves ambitious but achievable targets as we grow.
We can be part of your green journey too.
Our Carbon Target
Cut our CO2 Footprint 35% by 2023*
*Relative to business turnover
In 2021 we switched all our energy contracts to Green Electricity and Green Gas tariffs. So now, all our warehouses and offices are powered by sustainable energy and downsizing their carbon footprints.
Zero to Landfill
100% of our waste is either recycled or burned to produce electricity. None of our waste is sent to landfill and we work hard to cut the volume of waste we produce across all of our sites.
All ILG paper and cardboard packaging is made from recycled materials. Instead of oil-based packing materials, we use paper-based void-fill wherever possible. Every week we send over six tonnes of cardboard for recycling.
Over time we are replacing our older warehouses with more modern, energy-efficient facilities. Our Space Gatwick warehouse is rated BREEAM ‘Excellent’ and equipped with extensive skylights, solar panels, low-energy LED lighting and fuel-saving heating.
