Environmental Sustainability

Rotec Hydraulics Ltd are a responsible business that identifies, plans and invests in solutions to reduce our carbon footprint and environmental impact. As part of being an environmentally responsible company we are committed to supporting our customers to become more sustainable by designing and offering more energy-efficient and eco-friendly engineering solutions. We also aim to reduce our own environmental footprint through active measures to improve our waste management, optimise our energy use and reduce our greenhouse gas emissions.

Sustainability is embedded within our company strategy and engrained into our daily business due to us having the necessary management frameworks, processes and systems in place. We have introduced a sustainability reporting system and are continuously identifying and working towards initiatives to monitor and drive our sustainability efforts.

Our aims

  • Gain ISO 14001 Environmental Management Certification by 2023
  • Reduce our carbon footprint by 50%* before 2030 and become carbon neutral by 2040.
  • Design and engineer solutions for our customers that are energy-efficient and more eco-friendly.
  • Continuously report, identify and implement environmentally sustainable improvements throughout the business.

Reducing our carbon footprint

A recent ‘Carbon Footprint Assessment’ identified the main sources of the Rotec’s carbon emissions and has ensured necessary management frameworks, processes and systems for decreasing our carbon footprint are data-driven and have measurable targets.

To achieve our aims, we will first focus on reducing emissions caused in-house and by our supply chain to the lowest possible level. Any emissions that cannot be eliminated will need to be offset through schemes that remove carbon from the atmosphere.

Eco-friendly solutions

Our team are using the latest engineering technology to design environmentally-friendly alternatives compared to more traditional engineering solutions. 

Rotec’s extensive product range, including Parker motion and control technologies, include an impressive range of highly efficient products, components and systems that will aid customers to reduce their carbon footprint. We design, distribute and provide technology solutions that enable our clients to be more efficient – saving time and energy. For example, our use of Parker Internet of Things (IoT) remote monitoring technology has helped users to reduce travel and associated environmental impact.

Rotec offer quality design, build, installation and maintenance of hydraulic, pneumatic, electrical mechanical and electronic components and systems across all industry sectors throughout the UK and internationally.
