Capital Coated Steel, the UK's premier independent pre-finished metals processor and sole independent Tata distributor, has made environmental stewardship a central pillar of their business operations.
In their unwavering commitment to sustainability, Capital Coated Steel has undergone a profound transformation in how they conduct business, ensuring continuity while minimizing negative environmental and social impacts. Their aim is to secure abundant resources for future generations, encompassing not only their employees and customers but also the wider bio-diverse ecosystem.
One of their key initiatives involves conducting a comprehensive carbon footprint analysis, focusing on scope 1 and 2 emissions—those they have direct control over. Their ambitious goal is to achieve Net Carbon neutrality by 2030, though their effective strategies may expedite this timeline.
In partnership with ecologi.com, the company has already made a significant impact, with 948.18 tonnes of carbon reduction and the planting of over 12,828 new trees.
Capital Coated Steel has also embraced the transition to electric and hybrid vehicles, with 75% of their fleet now consisting of such environmentally friendly options. They have invested in supporting infrastructure, including the installation of new charging points, to facilitate this shift.
With over 50 years of industry experience, the company, originally founded by John Hunt and Nick Williams in 1972, remains a family-owned venture that has consistently strived for excellence in serving major domestic and international clients.
