Environment


From day 1 Capital has been committed to both reducing our own impact on the environment as well as enabling our partners to do likewise.

Our design team work tirelessly with existing and new technology to ensure that every product we manufacture helps us reach our goal while all members of the Capital team work together to reduce the waste the business produces and to divert as much as possible from landfill.

 

100% Natural Refrigerants

The Capital R&D Team have been working with 100% natural Hydrocarbons for a number of years and we were the first UK manufacturer to have an integral multideck, running Hydrocarbon, approved for the Enhanced Capital Allowance program.

Hydrocarbons are not only environmentally friendly; they are also more efficient than many of the older refrigerants which are still in use - so the benefit is twofold.

Capital are now rolling out Hydrocarbon refrigerants throughout the product range with the goal of having 100% of equipment utilising this environmentally friendly, zero ozone depleting gas by the end of 2015.

 

Low Energy Products

Simple changes can make a big difference and Capital know this. Whether it is replacing standard tube lighting with low energy LED’s or EC Fan Motors rather than conventional items the savings add up. The all new Midas ECO-FREEZE chest freezers are a prime example with running costs from as little as 4 pence per day!

Larger savings of up to 40% can be made by adding full glass doors to multidecks and the Capital glass door solutions have been designed in such a way as to minimise any perceived barrier to customer sales.

 

Low Emission Delivery Vehicles

Capital has committed to reducing the carbon footprint of our fleet and investment has been made in low emission delivery vehicles which will make huge in-roads to lowering fuel costs and allowing us to keep our delivery charges low.
