EFI management and staff are committed to operating sustainable services effectively at all times.
We have developed policies and services to minimise our impact on the environment and actively support national and international community projects. Please see below some of the main projects EFI are involved in to try and give something back to our environment!
As part of our service to event organisers EFI collect and remove unwanted/ abandoned pallets at the end of the show.
These are returned to our local warehouse and assessed, repaired and returned to the freight system. Those beyond repair are broken down and the wood is recycled.
EFI pioneered the use of advanced receiving warehouses for European events and now operate the service for events all over the world.
A generous delivery window enables customers to utilise routine delivery resources, avoiding additional journeys, long delays at show site and cutting carbon emissions.
Less vehicles on site means less trucks on the road and less CO2 at the venue.
Watching our Carbon Footprint
EFI have teamed up with CO2Balance to monitor the impact our business has on the environment. Our activities are assessed on an annual basis. We then choose to offset our carbon deficit through a series of managed CO2Balance projects.
