Is saving the environment something your passionate about.

Is 2019 the year you make a difference?

Globally 1.3 billion tones of waste amounts each year. The daily contribution per person is approximately 1.2kg. That means in a business of 18 members daily we produce 21.6 kg of waste - and that's not taking into account business waste.

ACT have always been passionate about our environment. 

That is way in every way we can, we aim to save the environment.


From 2010 ACT have sent parcels to our customers outside the North East using recycled packaging only.

Scrap Carbide.

Every pound of scrap carbide we receive is re-used in the manufacturing of new, recycled inserts.


On a daily basis our team pre plans our delivery routes to use less congested routes and maximise the efficient use of vehicles, reducing journey time and saving fuel.


  • As well as all of the above in 2019 our focus is to monitor our use of key sources of energy (electricity) in our efforts to reduce consumption and save costs.
  • We aim to monitor our water consumption through our change from water coolers (plastic bottles) to an in-house filtered water system.
  • Half the amount of plastic usage.
  • Re-evaluate our usage of paper and create a more efficient printing method.
