LOOKING AFTER OUR ENVIRONMENT

At Reflex we take our responsibility towards the environment and sustainability very seriously.
We have held ISO certification for Environmental (14001) and Quality Management (9001) since 2013.

RECYCLING

For over 20 years we have been separating and recycling all our plastic waste to help minimise landfill. Initially this wasn’t an easy task as there were only a handful of UK companies offering this service, but it is good to see that there are now many companies offering fully traceable recycling, separation, cleaning and regrind services to companies like ours.

MATERIALS

We are currently using recycled and recyclable materials as much as possible and advise our customers on the ‘greenest’ options available for their project – this includes ranges of semi rigid materials, self-adhesive sheets and various speciality plastics and boards.

All our polypropylene is now made up from at least 50% recycled waste content. We have committed to laying down stocks of this material as well as running tests on a 100% recycled sheet.

We stock a Gloss Clear PET sheet that is made up from 70% recycled bottle waste – 100 sheets of this material contain 2,048 recycled 500ml drink bottles. There is now also a fully sustainable 100% recycled PET sheet available which we will be stocking in 2022.

Please take a look at our 'Materials' page for more information.

ENERGY

Our modern premises lends itself perfectly to energy efficient running. We have plenty of daylight all year round due to the glass walls incorporated in the stunning design.

The lights throughout Reflex, both inside and out, have recently been upgraded to a new low energy LED system that will reduce our annual carbon footprint by 16.89 tons.

The air handling system in our main production area has helped minimise energy usage on heating for the last 20 years but, we are very aware that there are now newer systems available that are more efficient. We are currently in the process of getting designs put together, utilising the latest technology and renewable energy sources, to ensure that we move forwards in the most energy efficient and eco-friendly way possible.
