The importance of sustainability at TEL

At TEL, we believe that an environmentally aware business considers more than just profits — it considers its impact on society and the environment, and as such, the team have been working to make the business more sustainable and to cut waste wherever possible.

For more than 50 years, the team at TEL has been working to improve the energy efficiency of our customers’ operations and this has given us a unique insight into the need to use our planet’s finite resources considerately and respectfully. 

Our core business is the design and development of products to minimise energy consumption and improve safety in laboratories. In addition, the airflow monitors and controls we supply also reduce our customers’ operational costs and shrink their carbon footprint.

However, we know that to operate as sustainably as we can, we need to think beyond the products and services we provide and consider the impact of our operation both on the local environment and further afield. That means looking at a range of issues from our suppliers’ green credentials through to the way we work, who we get to clean our premises through to how we behave individually.

With this in mind, TEL will be publishing a Sustainability Report later this year to set out our vision for the future, and how we as a company affect it and intend to reduce our impact it.

TEL’s Director, Richard Eady says: “I firmly believe all businesses in the UK must reduce the impact their operations have on both the local and global environment and here at TEL we are committed to finding better ways to achieve this.

We’re applying the same problem-solving philosophy and hunger for innovation to making our business more sustainable as we do to our customers. 

Our Sustainability Report will detail the work we are doing here in the UK. But we know there is always more to be done. So, we choose to make the pursuit of sustainability and the reduction of our carbon emissions a key priority in the years ahead.”
