Reducing our carbon footprint

Altro are committed to reducing waste production in all our manufacturing sites and offices globally. We are proud of achieving zero waste to landfill at our Letchworth site which has been the case since 2014.

Waste

  • Zero waste to landfill at our Letchworth site
  • Waste is either recycled or waste to energy recovered via our waste management partner
  • Our Altro resins site is committed to the Resin Flooring Association (FeRFA) initiative to halve waste to landfill in the resin flooring industry
  • Altro resins ensure packaging sizes have been reduced across the range by optimising unit sizes
  • Altro resins’ adoption of universal (common) components and pack size for all epoxy products is reducing packaging, wasted materials on-site and stock holding

Water

  • Since 2000, we've reduced water consumption in our manufacturing process by a massive 99%
  • Our UK water supplier (Affinity Water) are committed to protection of the environment, prevention of pollution and compliance with environmental legislation, regulations and other requirements that are applicable to them
