Norcros Adhesives is a three time environmental winner

July 2018

Norcros Adhesives has just the TTA Award for Best Environmental Initiative: the third year in a row that the company has won this prestigious accolade.  The Award is in recognition of the many measures the company has put in place over recent years to improve the environmental management of its operations. This includes the way it runs its business, as well as the environmental impact of its individual products. 

 

The company’s work on environmental improvement goes back to the time of its founding. Since the earliest days it has been the intention to eliminate waste going to landfill. This zero target was achieved during 2015, a major achievement for a large scale manufacturing business.

 

It has launched a wave of environmentally friendly products in recent years, including Norcros Pro 30 Fast Track Eco Levelling Compound, which contains recycled crushed glass, rather than quarried sand and Norcros Pro Ply, an eco-friendly Tile Backer Board which is manufactured from mineral-based magnesium oxide, meaning that very little CO2 is emitted during its manufacture.

 

The company is also a Gold member of the Supply Chain Sustainability School. This is a construction industry initiative designed to promote sustainability in construction supply chains. It provides free practical support in the form of e-learning modules, tailored self-assessment and action plans, sustainability training and networking.

 

“We are very proud to have won this major accolade from our industry three times in succession,” says Managing Director, Richard Wallis. “Improving our environmental performance has been key to the company since its founding and is important to all our colleagues here, so I’m delighted for them that we now have this unique track record of success. I am sure this will also spur us on to maintain and further improve the high standards which we now set ourselves in terms of environmental improvement.”
