Purpose - We believe the best way to solve environmental and social problems is through business, and as we grow our intention is to highlight the benefit we bring to the planet and people even further. Our belief is realised as instead of putting profit as the centre point, our purpose is the focus, which in turn delivers our success.
People - People make the place, and this flows with each business decision we make. We strive to ensure that we are accountable in supporting and improving the health of our team and the communities in which we operate.
Planet - Throughout each step at Fluechem we have the health of our environment at the forefront, and we relentlessly measure and analyse the environmental performance of our chemicals (such as AdBlue® or AUS40) making sure it is produced to the highest environmentally friendly standard. After all our chemicals reduce air pollution so it would be ironic if we didn’t.
All the raw materials used in our formulas are comprehensively assessed for safety and environmental health, and this includes our product packaging which we evaluate for recyclability.
Each manufacturing process is evaluated according to the energy used and material recovery. We use this evaluation for continuous improvement.
No animal testing is conducted within our organisation. We do not endorse it either. No animal by-products are used in our formulations. 100% free from the gross stuff.
We promote and donate to charities that actively campaign against all types of cruelty.
Climate Conscious - we are working to find new solutions to tackle climate change.
Our aim is to eradicate unnecessary CO2 emissions from sourcing, product manufacturing, distribution and company operations and we provide incentives to help in this reduction process. This has led to us opening factories and supply points across the globe so that we reduce our environmental footprint while being close to the communities we serve. Throughout our supply chain we champion suppliers who also use technology that reduces NOx & SOx emissions whilst bringing us their service or raw materials.
For the CO2 emissions we can’t avoid during our production and supply of chemicals we make direct investments and provide incentives to our suppliers to assist them in investing in more energy efficient ways of working such as equipment or lighting.
We buy renewable energy credits for all our manufacturing sites and try to implement biodiesel as a power source using SCR & Scrubber technology for the exhaust gases.
Delivering without the smoke
Our products are carried on modern trucks that adhere to the latest EURO standard. Our NOx reduction chemicals are delivered on a NOx reduction service
Manufacturing & Distribution
We are not content just reinventing caustic and urea products, we also want to think of new ways to produce them. We invite our key suppliers and manufacturers of raw materials to work with us towards our ultimate goal of zero waste manufacturing, under our greensourcing program.
Our domestic shipments are done so by carriers who use the latest driving software which improves driver performance and reduces their environmental footprint whilst bringing you your goods.
Biodiesel or EURO fleets
Our goods are moved on EURO trucks using DEF / AdBlue® or biodiesel in countries that do not have access to this technology.
Sourcing- when it comes to procuring & raw materials, we take a ‘responsible’ approach.
We work with our raw material & packaging suppliers to derive solutions that reduce materials used in our Caustic, AdBlue® or AUS40 products. From the plastics in our packaging to the raw materials, we adhere to the highest material and quality standards and manufacture in environmentally responsible ways.
Renewable Recycle Cycle
We are working to reduce the use of materials that are non renewable across our product line, from our bottling to our bulk deliveries.
We work with our suppliers to analyse the environmental impact of making our raw materials and to identify best practices. As we have producing sites across the world our internal subsidiary companies can procure from each other sites which ensures that we reduce the distance our product travels to our cross border customers.
