Environmental Policies & Responsibility

Nielsen is committed to conducting business in an ethically and socially responsible manner, ensuring the effective management of environmental issues. We are focused on sustainable development in order to meet the needs of the present, without compromising future generations.

Along with our accreditations, we implement the following commitments across our business:

Chemical Usage

One of the primary ways we can help our customers achieve the same objectives is by minimising their chemical usage. All Nielsen products are of a high quality and simply require the application of less product to complete the task. Our range is comprised of concentrate products to which water is added, saving unnecessary transport and packaging. With dilution meters as a standard, we offer extremely high dilution rates ensuring that delivery of the most commonly used chemicals is completed with the minimal environmental impact.

Products

  • Select and formulate ingredients to ensure safety and optimise the sustainability of our finished product during its lifecycle
  • Offer water based products as an alternative to solvent-based products and provide concentrated professional products to reduce our environmental impact
  • Fully comply with all applicable EU Regulations to ensure that our products are safe for people and the environment
  • Ensure that recycled material is used wherever possible and that all packaging and components are able to be recycled
  • Compliant with REACH and all regulations

MANUFACTURING, LOGISTICS AND SITE

  • We are rigorous in ensuring that we minimise raw material and finished product waste
  • We are registered and monitored to IPPC/EPR by the UK Environment Agency
  • Water usage is measured and monitored, together with electricity and fuel oil, both of which has seen reductions of 40+% in use per unit of manufacture
  • The installation of lighting with sensors ensures that energy is used only when required

OUR EMPLOYEES

  • All employees are active in ensuring that all waste paper and cardboard are recycled
  • All employees, regardless of the department are tasked to reduce the environmental impact of our operations
