Tybro’s Environmental & Sustainability Commitment

Engineering Excellence Since 1914

Manufactured In The UK

ISO 9001:2015 / FORS BRONZE

Our journey to reducing CO2 emissions.

The UK government has made an ambitious legal commitment to achieve net zero by 2050. Therefore, we all have to do ‘our bit’ in finding more environmentally friendly ways to live our lives and operate our businesses.

Tybro have committed to reducing our carbon footprint which will help reduce the carbon footprint of our customers and their end users.  We have already implemented significant changes within our business to help us on this journey. Alongside our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, we are also a critical manufacturing partner to several companies that are creating new green environmental projects such as fusion, hydrogen and electrification.


Raw Material Usage

We are committed to reducing raw material waste. Making sure consumption is reduced and materials are recycled.


Power Usage

We are committed to reducing power usage. LED lighting, energy-efficient equipment and power surge protection are steps we have taken.


Reduce, Reuse, Recycle

Reducing single-use plastics and paper consumption while making sure the waste we produce is recycled.

Recycled Metal

Our commitment to reducing raw material waste

  • We only purchase raw materials as and when we need them for the job.
  • We recycle all excess scrap metal to a local company which is repurposed.

Our commitment to reducing power usage

  • Motion sensors are fitted within our goods-in/goods-out department, inspection area, toilets, and metal stores.
  • Power surge protection.
  • LED lighting is fitted throughout the factory.
  • We have invested in a laser marking machine – this technology is environmentally friendly and energy efficient.
  • We have invested in a laser welder which is more environmentally friendly and energy efficient than traditional welding and doesn’t involve using harmful substances for humans and the environment. This ensures the best protection for the health of operators, reduces the environmental impact of various processes, and avoids generating special waste, thereby saving costs associated with waste disposal.  Compared to other technologies, lasers are particularly safe in terms of reducing the risk of environmental pollution.

Pallet Recycling

Our commitment to reduce /
re-use / recycle

  • We are committed to using as many reusable and recycled materials, machinery and tooling as we possibly can whilst still delivering great service and high-quality products.
  • We have significantly reduced the use of single-use plastic and cardboard within our despatch department by investing in a cardboard shredding machine. This enables us to repurpose old broken cardboard boxes into biodegradable reusable packaging material; repurposing what formally would have been a single-use cardboard box.
  • We use greener bio-degradable plastic wallets for our job cards on the shop floor which are re-used wherever possible.
  • We use paper tape for our packaging rather than plastic tape to help reduce the amount of single-use plastic.
  • We recycle pallets rather than buy new ones and regularly ask our clients to supply us with pallets in exchange for delivering their goods, to help re-use.
  • All our coolant is collected in IBC’S and recycled by our waste company – see the link below to find out how they are recycled.
  • All our waste is separated via our designated waste company.

Reducing consumption

Paper consumption in 2023 – Tybro used 35,000 pieces of paper.

We are continuously working on improving our processes and the amount of paper we use within the business – only printing when necessary. This is an ongoing project which we are continually reviewing and updating.

  • TYBRO invested in ceramic cups and travel mugs for all employees, and a hot tap to reduce the use of plastic cups within the business and the number of cups of hot drinks made.
  • TYBRO aim to offset the amount of paper that we use by working on a community project in partnership with the local Forestry Commission and a local school in which we hope to plant several trees to offset a percentage of our carbon emissions
