Sustainability

We care about the planet, just like you

Concern for the environment and promoting a broader sustainability agenda are integral to Fahr’s professional activities and the management of the organisation.

We aim to follow and promote good sustainable practices in order to reduce the environmental impact within our activities and to assist our customers and suppliers to do the same.

We strive to design sustainable products and to use manufacturing practices that have a low impact on the environment such as sourcing sustainable and recyclable raw materials. Supporting sustainable development is central to our philosophy. It is present in all our processes from material acquisition through to production and manufacture.

We recycle, we can help you recycle

We all need to work together to help the planet by making responsible choices in the materials we use and how we recycle and reuse them in the future.

Fahr recycling policy

Fahr Industries has been recycling 99% of all its HDPE waste material and off cuts from the very formation of the company and it is our policy to continue to recycle as much of our waste materials as possible in the future.

We recycle for you

We are taking the initiative and offering you a service where you can send your old or damaged Fahr HDPE panels back to our factory and we will ensure that this HDPE is recycled free of charge. Please make sure the panels were originally supplied by Fahr and that you send them back to us stripped down to the bare panel, so all the fittings are removed.

Fahr recycled materials

At Fahr we use many recycled materials in our products, including recycled plastic posts, seat planks, post industrial recycled core sheets. We also have 100% post-consumer recycled plastic sheet materials available to order, and if it's not recycled it will most likely be recyclable.

Recycle today for a better tomorrow

Plastics offer a great deal of benefits over other materials. The use of polymers in vehicle manufacture for example, is making vehicles lighter and more efficient, or the use of polymers to replace timber helping to reduce de-forestation are prime examples.

The majority of the polymers we use can be easily recycled and it’s the responsibility of us all to recycle where possible.
