Environmental Guide & Policies

The process of Sustainable Development is a dynamic, evolving principle. Multipanel UK harness the potential of new technology and design principles whilst simultaneously protecting and enhancing the Earth’s natural life support systems.

Multipanel UK strive to be at the forefront of new manufacturing technologies, material developments and recycling possibilities in every product we design and produce. Across the world, our customers are working towards a common goal; the construction of timeless, beautiful creations without any compromise on the wellbeing of our environment and the sustainability of our ecosystems.

The last few years have seen significant growth in the building and creative industries towards providing signage and building facades that meet and exceed local and international environmental legislation.

By using methods that incorporate sustainable manufacturing processes and materials, we can, together, dramatically reduce the negative impact we have on our environment.


Environmental Policy

Multipanel UK manufacture and supply Alupanel® Aluminium Composite Panels for use in the Sign Making, Display, and Construction industries across the world. We will operate in compliance with all environmental legislation and hold all relevant certification for our products. We strive to work to best environmental practices in everything that we do, we are dedicated to the reduction of toxic emissions, and to minimising our impact on the environment by using methods that incorporate sustainable materials and by building waste reduction into design.

Policy aims:

  • To comply with all relevant regulatory requirements and environmental legislation:
  • To integrate any potential environmental impacts into our Corporate Objectives and decision making
  • To incorporate environmental impacts into our Product Development Programme
  • To encourage a culture of valuing resources
  • To increase staff awareness of Environmental Legislation and best practice
  • To give open access to our Environmental Policy and Objectives, for both Staff and Stakeholders/Customers

Recycling Policy

At Multipanel UK we have established our own recycling centre in close proximity to our UK factory. We minimize production waste by recycling all excess core material back in to the manufacturing process and by sending all aluminium scrap for recycling. 

Aluminium is infinitely recyclable making it the material of choice for balancing the demand of a growing economy with the need to preserve the environment. Recycling aluminium requires 95% less energy, generates 95% less emissions, and creates 97% less water pollution than manufacturing primary aluminium. 

Alupanel® is fully recoverable and Multipanel UK offer a recycling service for all our Aluminium Composite Materials whereby full pallets of clean, de-nailed ACM can be returned to our UK factory to be recycled. As the actual scrap value of the material is minimal, the major benefit of recycling is environmental, in both raw material and waste management. 

The choices we make today have a major impact on the world around us. At Multipanel UK, we recognise the responsibility that comes with being an international manufacturer and supplier of various PVC and Aluminium composite materials. We are committed to taking every possible step to reduce our footprint on the environment and we ensure that all our staff and stakeholders share in these objectives
