Environment and Sustainability
At Vikoma, we care about our planet and are taking steps to reduce our carbon footprint and improve our environment. Working towards the circular economy, our waste is recycled and our products are designed to be kept as long as possible through maintenance, refurbishment and servicing.
Vikoma is a world leader in the design and manufacture of oil pollution and environmental control systems. Our products help protect and clean our environment, but we also recognise that our operations have a direct impact on the global and local environment through their energy consumption, transportation, purchasing and waste generation.
Our commitment to the environment
We are committed to manage our environmental impacts and continuously improve our environmental performance.
We are gold award winners for the Green Impact Scheme a scheme which works with the National Union of Students, encouraging best practice as well as giving students in our community hands on experience in environmental management.
Long lasting products, fully supported and maintainable
We help our customers make right choices when buying equipment. We offer products with a long working life which are supportable with spares and maintence to extend working life. With good maintenance products last longer and waste and landfill are minimised.
Extending product life through refurbishment
With an extensive range of facilities in our factory we are able to refurbish many of our products to extend their working life. This can not only be a cost efficent solution but it is also good for our environment.
Biodiversity and community
We have a natural garden and a bee hive attracting biodiversity. We work closely with our local community and look for innovate ways to to re-use, recycle. The local laser and skate rink love our re-purposed oil booms and garden furniture has been made from old pallets. Below are some picture of some of these projects.
