We Are Seriously Committed To The Environment
Alliance UK online have been trading since 1996 and are looking to ensure that we continue going forward by being as sustainable as possible. Being part of a family company, not only are we committed to the local communities we operate in but also to ensuring we are as green as possible in operating our business.
Here are just some of the many ways that we can work with our cleaning & catering customers to ensure our businesses have a minimal impact on the environment.
1. Order Online
By using our cleaning & catering supplies website we both can reduce paper usage. With the whole of our ordering system being electronically connected, paper usage is minimised in the process. When you order on-line this is a paperless system all the way through to dispatch. We are working on integrating our systems further to continue ensuring resources are not wasted.
2. Electronic Documents
Instead of posting paper statements why not subscribe to receiving electronic documents? You will receive our invoices and statements via email and reduce wastage as well as CO2 emissions. Not only is this an environmentally friendly option but it allows you to store and manage your paperwork more efficiently. To subscribe contact us stating your name, company name and account number and we will do the rest. Alternatively, you can discuss this with your Alliance UK ’ Account Manager or a member of the customer services team.
3. We Stock Environmentally Friendly Products
Where possible we have introduced inventory ranges and cleaning products that have minimal environmental impact as determined by the W.E.I.R scheme. We are continually looking to ensure that our catering & cleaning products are ethically sourced and have as little impact on the environment as possible. Many of our customers have already made the switch to Enov eFill – should you? Check out our commercial eco-friendly cleaning ranges from Enov eFill and Katrin to name a few. Or FSC certified wooden brooms and biodegradable bin bags. For catering customers looking for eco disposables Alliance UK catering supplies have sourced Vegware, products that are compostable for food and drink on the move.
6. Our In-House Systems Have Been Changing
Not only do we reduce our office wastage by recycling but we are also committed to ensuring our warehouses are as environmentally friendly as possible. We have invested in compactors and have seen a significant reduction in our waste as well as savings in packaging at the fulfilment stage. We also are saving energy in the offices and have taken a number of measures to ensure electricity and gas use is minimised. Our projects are ongoing and we constantly monitor, review and improve our systems to ensure we are as green as possible.
All Alliance UK employees are trained and committed to the company's Environmental Policy and are part of the process to manage waste, recycling and energy saving in all areas. Alliance UK online are proud of the commitment made by our entire workforce to help prevent pollution and protect the environment.
7. Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
We make large orders with our suppliers to reduce our carbon footprint as well as sourcing British products where possible.
8. Redundant Stock
We have regularly, for years, ensured our redundant inventory does not end up in a landfill but is given to various charities who will benefit. Alliance UK online is committed to reducing our impact on the environment and continually reviews our policies to ensure continued improvement.
