Fews Marquees are committed to environmental sustainability. Wherever possible we look for ways to adopt green working practices, including recycling goods consumed in the process of running the business. From office paper to print cartridges and marquee carpet to board floor, we make every attempt to minimise waste and ensure used products re-enter the process to be converted in secondary goods. Our carpets for example are converted into pellets, used in the production of molded plastic goods and our old PVC marquee walls go to making protective bags for new PVC and linings.
Amongst other green initiatives, we regularly check our vehicle fleet to enable optimisation of fuel efficiency, by ensuring van & lorry tyres are at the correct pressures, engines are serviced and loads are to the correct specification for vehicle capacity
Sustainable energy is also our passion. In the last 5 years we have installed a comprehensive biomass system to fuel our warehouse, including the supply of heating and hot water.
Burning biomass is as near to carbon-neutral as any energy source, with flammable plant matter being burned to release energy in the form of heat and power. Biomass is an especially attractive fuel source because huge amounts of it are generated inadvertently through industrial and agricultural production. Harnessing this waste material and extracting more energy from it improves all-around efficiency and reduces the ecological impact mankind has on the environment.
In 2015 we further extended our commitment to the environment by introducing solar power. This is primarily to provide a clean energy source for the business, but also to feedback to the grid.
Using our state of the art cleaning machine, matched with locally sourced eco friendly cleaning products and water heated by our bio-mass boiler we are committed to cleaning with integrity.
Where capacity allows it, we are also able to deliver an outsourced PVC cleaning solution for other suppliers. We clean white and clear panels in all sizes, whilst making a contribution to others’ environmental policies. Just another way we like to do our bit!
