Axil reports across-the-board growth in sustainable practices

Environmental total waste management firm, Axil, has published its 2023 Sustainability Impact Report showing significant strides in its sustainability journey, marking a significant transformation from the 2022 baseline figures.

Based in the Midlands since 2018, Axil has surpassed all expectations for 2023 with advancements in sustainability and social responsibility, confirming its commitment to driving positive change within the industry and beyond.

Some comparisons to 2022 include:

  • 197 per cent surge in employee community support hours: Axil’s dedication to social responsibility.
  • 32,270 surplus products reused and redistributed: Supporting the social enterprises and those who need them most.
  • Reported training hours more than doubled per person: Commitment to employee development.
  • Quadrupled tonnage to reuse & redistribution: Supporting the circular economy.
  • 85 per cent of suppliers are SME’s (Small to Medium Sized Enterprises) – Boosting local economies and employment.

Working with UK leading brands like LEVC, Whirlpool, Lush and BMW Group, spanning critical sectors like Aerospace, Automotive, Food, Manufacturing, and Pharmaceuticals, Axil’s Impact Report showcases alignment with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. From enhancing employee welfare to community engagement, Axil says it continues to “redefine industry standards” with its approach to sustainability.

Last year the organisation also announced its EcoVadis Silver Standard, placed it in the top nine per cent of global waste management companies assessed.

Gina Rudkin, Head of Sustainability & Zero Waste, said: “Our commitment to measurable outcomes underscores our ethos of accountability and transparency. By setting ambitious sustainability goals and diligently tracking our progress, we pave the way for a future where businesses thrive in harmony with the environment.”

Edward Pigg, Managing Director at Axil Integrated Services, echoes this sentiment. He stated: “Our vision revolves around responsible resource management, technological deployment, education, and innovation. We are steadfast in our pursuit of a circular economy, where every intervention contributes to lasting environmental and social benefits.”

Navigating FM efforts to sustainability 

As environmental protection demands unified action, transparency, and heightened awareness, Biological Preparations has launched an initiative to catalyse sustainability efforts within the FM sector.

FM businesses face unique challenges and heightened expectations of eco-initiatives from their clients. Yet, behind the scenes in FM businesses, many environmental initiatives, rollouts and even planning, are not broadcasted and transparent.

Have your say: Sustainability Trends in FM 

The UK biotech company’s five-minute, anonymous FM-focused survey, offers FM professionals of all hierarchies with a platform to voice their perspectives and share their experiences. The results from this survey will then be analysed and presented as an industry-specific report, which aims to guide FM businesses helping them benchmark trends, gain clarity on industry challenges, and map out goals and metrics towards sustainability.
