Our Green Values
Eco-Friendly & Recycled
We at Blake & White are very conscious of the need to be sustainable in our practice; we are a market leader supplying cleaning and PPE products to the market and therefore we MUST practice what we preach.
I can personally say that it bring an inner smile to know that what Blake & White is doing is not only respecting the environment but adding to its grandeur.
Many of us have children and some of us have the privilege to have grandchildren, and therefore it is our responsibility to ensure Blake & White leave a legacy that future generations can enjoy for many years.
In our Sustainability & The Environment section, you will note a selection of our sustainable goals that we have already achieved, however at Blake & White we never feel we are done, but rather stretch ourselves to achieve more ambitious achievements for the greater good of all.
At Blake & White we bring a smile to the next generation.
Michael Barter, CEO
Here at Blake & White, we pride ourselves on being a truly sustainable business.
Our mission is to be;
“POSITIVELY PASSIONATE, CONSISTENTLY CARING AND SUSTAINABLY SOUND FROM BEGINNING TO END”
We aim for absolute sustainability in everything we do, at every touch point from the first contact with Blake & White through to the delivery of final product.
We believe that sustainability isn’t just about meeting current needs, however, but more importantly, it is about ensuring we are here for the long term and are paving the way for a bright tomorrow…
More than just using resources wisely, minimizing our impact on the world around and offering environmentally friendly products, important though these are, it also means having a truly sustainable business model, having financial sustainability and being identified as a company who have an ability to be agile and make decisions quickly.
Here at Blake & White, we have always sought to ensure our carbon footprint is kept to a minimum, and we have adopted a number of strategies to achieve this.
Our head offices in Andover have been designed and built to exacting performance standards, including many special features.
Meet or exceed all applicable government legislation, local and company environmental, health and safety standards.
Only source and market products that are manufactured by companies with specified environmental policies.
Reduce pollution and increase our sustainability programe. This is why Blake & White closely monitor all aspects of our operation for the prevention of pollution. For example, with transport and distribution, we maximise space utilisation on vehicles to minimise the requirement for extra delivery vehicles.
Increase recycling - it has always been at the forefront of the Company and we participate in recycling to the greatest practical extent in order to reduce impact on landfills and promote recovery of valuable resources. All our plastic and cardboard waste is baled and recycled using a local recycling company.
Recycling has always been something that we embrace and participate in to the very greatest practical extent.
One of Blake & White's main aims is to reduce our impact on landfill and promote the recovery of valuable resources. In order to achieve this, we use a local recycling company to bale and recycle all of our plastic and cardboard waste, which has allowed us to recycle a total of 1494 tonnes! (that’s the equivalent of 374 adult female elephants)
And you can recycle too! Nowadays, most products include a recycling symbol on them.
