Our Responsibilty

Chartway manufactures and sources parts from the UK and Asia. In today’s world customers and consumers want quality products/low prices and instant availability. However, caring about and looking after the impact to the environment around us is also fast becoming a high priority topic that manufacturers can no longer ignore.

At Chartway we take our environmental responsibilities very seriously. Because of the nature of our business we appreciate that we cannot be impact free when it comes to the health of our planet, however we are doing everything we can to reduce our own direct impact and also that of our suppliers and customers.

Our Action

Heating, lighting and electrical consumption do not extend to the full carbon footprint we create as a business. Each year we are targeting a reduction in our packaging, our fuel consumption, the use of paper and water.

Even with all these initiatives in place, our carbon footprint is still positive. We are working hard to achieve carbon neutrality; adopting the principles set out in PA2060. The journey is a long one but we are taking big steps to quickly reduce our Co2 footprint.

Each year we calculate our Carbon Footprint which includes that our of our employees personal footprints using Co2 Census software. We then publish that data and invest in verified gold standard decarbonisation projects, which include reforestation and carbon scrubbing, which offset the balance of our carbon footprint.
