Environmental


Coatech are committed to continually improving all aspects of our operations, so that we operate in a sustainable way and continually aspire to minimise our impact upon the environment as much as possible

Here’s how we’re doing our bit:

PRODUCTS

  • Water-based and solvent free systems are now widely available, which reduce impact on the environment and emissions during curing
  • Modern resins are low in VOC’s (Volative Organic Compounds)
  • We use natural aggregates and other recyclable materials such as glass and rubber within our systems, many of which are sourced in the UK
  • By choosing a resin floor, the sheer longevity of systems when installed means that across the floor’s life cycle, both cost and environmental impact is low
  • We are selective about the suppliers we work with, and choose those whose credentials and approach reflect our own standards. This means environmental impact is reduced along the whole supply chain.
  • Many of the systems we install have sustainable features that can help construction projects achieve excellent BREEAM ratings for sustainable construction


PACKAGING

  • Wherever possible materials are supplied to us in reusable IBC’s (Intermediate Bulk Containers) and recyclable drums. Not only are these recyclable but as these are supplied in bulk, we are able to cut down our carbon footprint and eliminate waste


WASTE

  • Coatech have a waste carriers license. We use a licensed waste disposal company to dispose and recycle our waste, and ensure compliancy with regulations. Please find a link to a copy of our current Waste Carriers license below
  • We monitor our waste streams and volumes produced so that we can set benchmarks to reduce amounts of waste sent to landfill
  • We recycle wherever possible, whether this be on site, or at our offices


TRAINING

  • The company has a designated manager who is qualified in NEBOSH Environmental Management to oversee operations throughout the business and promote environmental initiatives across the company
  • All our site staff are formally trained in ‘Environmental Principles and Best Practice’ covering issues such as Waste Management and Environmental law


MANAGEMENT

  • We aim to develop and implement a formally accredited Environmental Management System that will further outline our commitment to our goal of minimising our environmental impact
  • Our systems were recently accredited to Phase 2 of BS8555 Environmental Management Standard
