CSR/Green Team

At Naylor we take our corporate and social responsibility seriously. That’s why we developed our Green Team – a group of Naylor employees who meet regularly to discuss and implement not only greener ways of working and energy saving ideas but also help the company work towards our target of zero landfill.

  • We have recycled approx. 60 mobile phones
  • Planted over 350 trees at our Quarries
  • Recycled over approx. 400 toners
  • Recycled approx. 500 kg of IT Equipment
  • To date we have saved £53k by using our borehole
  • 2017 – Recycling –
    • 76.9% Naylor recycled
    • 20.1 via our contractors
    • 2.1% Energy from Waste
    • 0.9% landfill

Creative arts – with scrap pipes!  

We have previously reported on the good works of the Scrap Creative Reuse Arts project. Last year, we donated a van-load of ducting off-cuts & other scrap items & these went down so well that they asked us for more: we were pleased to oblige! To read more about their good works, see

SolarEdge Kiosk dashboards

Our solar panels are fitted – we just need the sun now! We can monitor how much energy the solar panels are generating at our  Cawthorne and Barugh Green sites in real time- well done to the Green Team for championing this development!

Solar Energy

As part of our Green initiative to reduce the Naylor group’s carbon footprint, we have invested in solar panels.

Since installing them the Co2 savings are equivalent to planting 850 trees.

Naylor Forum on tour!

Representatives of the Employee Forum and the Green team visited Drax Power Station following an invitation from The Energy Team – Helen Jowitt, Andy Manning, David Waite, Elliot Goodman, Dan Wain, Ian Ellel, Jake McArthur and Chris Haigh. Presentations covered themes such as the new ESOS legislations, etc.

In the last 12 months we have recycled over 298 tonnes of waste at Head Office.

In 2014 78% of our waste (298 tonnes!) was recycled and a further 18% went to waste to energy power generation. Ian Steele our new Waste Management Co-ordinator located at Cawthorne hopes to improve this further with the help of our Recycling Champions and by rolling our recycling initiatives across all other sites.

SEC – Specific Energy Consumption

Over the past 12 months we have been able to monitor each divisions energy consumption on a month by month basis, this has then been measured against the total saleable tonnes of product produced in the month that gives each division a SEC figure (total energy/saleable tonnes). Using the figures from the last 12 months we can benchmark and measure each divisions performance against itself, targeting better energy utilisation.

Creative Scrap Project

We have donated various items to Creative Scrap who are a social enterprise scheme based in Leeds focusing on helping the environment by reusing waste material from business as resources for art and play, so far they have taken some waste plastic pipes, old wire trays, old stickers, paper, keyboards and cardboard tubing.

Power Factor!

League tables have been introduced that now monitor each divisions performance on Power Factor, this has resulted in the Tipton site implementing additional power factor correction equipment. By the group as a whole focusing on Power Factor we can ensure we cut down on unnecessary charges, maximise our available site capacities, look after all our motor and drive units and cut down on maintenance costs.

Busy Bees..

Our bees have been very busy making lots of lovely honey. Which is a combination of spring crop from the apple blossom, blackthorn, dandelion and oilseed rape and the summer crop from clover, blackberry and willow herb.
