Environmental, Social and Governance

Doing the right thing, for the environment and for society

Here at Tidyco, we take sustainability and our impact on the environment seriously and that is why we have installed solar panels and provide charging points for colleagues, who drive electric and hybrid vehicles – free of charge.

We are always thinking of new ways we can be innovative when it comes to offsetting our carbon footprint and one way we are working towards a more sustainable future is by recycling packaging. Branding is important but not at the cost of the environment. You might have come across this webpage by scanning the QR code or entering the web address into your browser, form one of our paper labels (shown below). By reusing packaging we are able make cost savings but more importantly save the planet and the environment.

Tidyco will always be Tidyco blue but we can also be green.

A Tidy Future

In an effort to reduce the amount of packaging Tidyco used, an initiative was introduced, which involved reusing supplier packaging. When a box is reused, we seal it with reinforced paper tape and a paper label explaining the initiative - all of which can then be recycled.

LED Lighting

Significant investment has been made in the installation of LED lighting across all of Tidcyo's facilities. These new lighting systems require less energy but emit more light than standard fluorescent tubes. In addition to this, they include movement sensors meaning they only come on when they need to. 

Solar Panels

Tidyco has invested massively into its solar power. There are currently 120 solar panels installed on the roof of both units, which Tidyco occupies, with more in the pipeline, which will be installed above the recently-acquired, adjacent building, Unit 6. This will house the Tidyco Rail Overhaul Facility. Furthermore, any power not consumed is fed back into the grid.

Toolbox Challenge

As part of Tidyco's commitment to give back to the community, Production Director Philip Mason has been spearheading a project called Toolbox Challenge, which is aimed at schools in the local area and is designed to give both girls and boys an introduction into STEM subjects and find the next generation of engineers.

EV Charging

We have a number of electric vehicle (EV) charging points installed across the Tidyco premises. Through government funding, a charging point for an electric van has recently been installed in preparation for the arrival of a fully electric commercial vehicle.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Tidyco takes the responsibility towards the safety of its customers, employees as well as positive impact upon the environment and the communities (local, national and global) within which it operates extremely seriously.

Employee Engagement

The senior management team have been part of a project to gauge the level of employee engagement. The initial engagement score came back at 63% (anything between 50% and 74% is classed as successful)
