VEKA and the environment
As part of the global VEKA family, VEKA Recycling shares in a positive commitment to the environment which is ongoing and unrelenting.
We continually work to keep our operating practices to their most efficient, including minimising any emissions from our plant as much as possible.
The VEKA fleet is a modern one, with several vehicles running on LPG as opposed to diesel which significantly reduces their carbon footprint. All our transport routes are extremely carefully planned to reduce mileage, including – where possible – utilising VEKA delivery vehicles for back-fill. (Taking advantage of wagons returning from routine deliveries, rather than sending a separate collection vehicle).
The VEKA brand name is synonymous with positive environmental solutions. Aside from establishing our famous closed-loop PVC-U recycling process, VEKA also shows its green credentials in a variety of ways:
VEKA plc supported the design of the UK’s first BFRC ‘A’ Rated window and the first fully reinforced, double-glazed window to gain the ‘A’ Rating, helping to dramatically cut CO2 emissions.
One of the most strikingly innovative ways that the VEKA Group has shown its commitment to the environment – as well as fabricators, fitters and homeowners – is by leading the industry in abandoning lead stabilisers and developing a Calcium Organic alternative. VEKA plc is accredited with ISO 14001
