Eskimo Ice is committed to improve environmental sustainability.

We are committed to reducing our energy and carbon impacts, as we believe that the consequences of climate change represent one of the greatest risks to our world. Our sustainability program is committed to environmentally sustainable initiatives that deliver near-term efficiency, value, and health for our business, our people, and the wider community.

We encourage our customers to reduce their impact on the environment by recommending the use of more sustainable materials. We actively promote a paper-free office. We regularly support our clients to avoid printing and we will make all endeavours to be a digital-first business.

We seek to comply with current environmental legislation and work to minimise the impact of our activities on the environment. We support the recommendations of the Taskforce on Climate-related Disclosure (TCFD) and engage with our stakeholders and encourage enhanced disclosure on climate change, biodiversity, and the SDGs, including efforts to advance the underlying goals, such as those of the Paris Agreement.

Measurable improvements to improve sustainability include:

Renewable electricity supply

100% Renewable Electricity Supply

100% of our supplied electricity is renewable and has a zero emissions factor for Scope 2 reporting. The electricity backed by UK REGOs or European GoOs, from a blend of sources including hydro, wind, solar, biomass and landfill gas. View our Rego Certificate to learn more.

Roof Overcladding & Solar Panels

Roof Overcladding & Solar Panels

This project provided enhanced roof insulation as well as full coverage of solar panels, providing up to 200kWh of renewable energy.

Supply Chain Efficiency

Our ‘Universal Optimised Palletisation’ project ensured the best possible supply chain throughput, providing efficiency benefits for both Eskimo Ice and our customers. This reduced our Greenhouse Gas Emissions due to associated haulage by approximately 19%.

Water Recycling

Our onsite reverse-osmosis facility allows us to recycle part of our process water waste, thereby minimising water wastage.

Reverse Supply Chain & Waste Recycling

We have onsite baling facilities, as well as reverse supply chain agreements in place, thereby optimising our plastic and cardboard waste recycling.

Clearly single-use plastic is a major cause for concern for consumers, customers and manufacturers. Whilst we are doing everything practicable to reduce plastic usage, it should be noted that ice manufacturing provides unique challenges in this area as a product which is wet, frozen and RTE (‘ready-to-eat’).

Our use of plastic in production has been reduced by approximately 24% per case since 2019. We have also incorporated 30% recycled material into our packaging film stocks. As a responsible manufacturer, we continue to monitor technological developments in this area and will continue to reduce the use of virgin polymer as it becomes feasible.
