Developing to meet the needs of present generations, without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs”


At H&M distribution we are continuing to look to advance and improve as a team and as a company. The below points are just some of the ways in which we are continually pushing forward and outlining our current environmental and sustainability advancements.

    • We operate Super-Efficient Euro 6 engines, the cleanest ever due to minimal C02 and NOx output.


    • Our double-deck trailers contribute towards Green House Gas (GHG) reduction, for which freight transportation accounts for 20% of all UK and EU emissions.


    • Our dedicated Safe and Fuel Efficient Driving (SAFED) Training encourages economic driving, resulting in a reduction of fuel use and GHGs.


    • Our load fill and route optimisation arrangements reduce fuel consumption and the emission of harmful gases and particulates.


    • We have multiple electric company cars in use, with dedicated EV charging pods to follow soon.


    • Car sharing for site visits is strongly encouraged amongst our staff, as is multiple site visits in one journey rather than increased mileage for single return trips.


    • Our electrical supply is from 75% renewable and 25% nuclear, so there no energy derived from fossil fuels.


    • Large Solar Panels at our Warrington site also contribute to providing more clean and renewable energy.


    • Our large warehouse buildings are unheated, avoiding pollution via Green House Gases (GHG) emissions.


    • Use of energy-efficient lighting, double glazing, blinds, and staff strongly encouraged to switch off unused equipment all contribute to reducing CO2 emissions.


    • Two out of our three sites do not use gas, so no requirement for this non-renewable energy source, resulting in the avoidance of air pollution, acid rain, and ozone layer depletion.


    • We segregate our bulk wood and plastic waste for recycling, rather than going to landfill.


    • We use second-hand pallets for slaving, reducing the demand for virgin materials.


    • Where possible, we upcycle existing site-based materials/items for improvement work.
