As a manufacturer, we recognise the importance of minimising our environmental footprint and have taken steps to do so through good business practice. Here are some of the things we’ve done:

  • A roof fitted with a 171 panel, 43kW solar panel system generates enough clean solar energy to replace 78% of our traditionally derived energy usage

  • The head office is lit using 110 energy-efficient fluorescent lights
  • Our NATA lab facility uses a single refillable gas bottle which replaced multiple ‘throw away’ gas cylinders
  • Our ‘batch’ machine use minimises total machine running times, reducing overall running hours and warm-up and cool-down periods
  • We have consciously reduced emissions per package delivered through efficient grouping of dispatched items
  • Our battery recycling is easy to manage as we manufacture and distribute our own batteries. All batteries past their life span are property disposed of into a recycling program
  • All company waste is tracked and recorded using an ERP system resulting in less than 1% comprehensive metal waste which can be melted down and reused
  • All Nautitech packaging is derived from 100% recycled goods and all excess paper is recycled and used as product buffering for outgoing shipments
  • We continue to strive towards a 100% paperless office
