At HepcoMotion, we understand the importance of considering our social, environmental, and economic responsibility. We believe that small steps can positively impact the lives of our colleagues, customers, and local communities. Our CSR activities reflect our ongoing commitment to contributing to a sustainable future.
We’re conscious of our responsibility to the environment, community and society as a whole, and have a number of sustainable business practices in place.
Solar panels at our headquarters in Tiverton generate more than half of the electricity we use on sunny days. As a business we’re striving for zero waste, and only use a waste company with a zero waste to landfill policy. We also donate annually to Temwa’s Carbon Balance, which helps balances CO2 emissions by planting trees in Malawi, supporting sustainable development in remote communities. As sustainability is a life-long commitment, our practices are constantly evolving and updating, ensuring we’re doing all we can.
As one of the largest employers in Tiverton, we’re committed to making a positive contribution to our local communities.
We work closely with a number of local schools, supporting with STEM projects and events, helping to inspire the next generation of engineers and promoting STEM as a viable careers option.
We have regular charity events, organised by our Social and Charity committee, fundraising for local and national charities. Our cake sales are always popular! We are proud supporters of CRUK annually. We also sponsor a local football team, which we have continued to sponsor for the past 30 years.
We believe that small steps can have a positive impact on the environment: lunchtime litter picking, bee hotels and wildflowers at our headquarters are just some of the small steps we’re taking. All of our company cars are being replaced by electric or hybrid models and we have EV charging points onsite.
We focus on operating in as environmentally friendly way as possible: LED lighting is used throughout the factory, metal working fluids have been replaced with new, more environmentally friendly alternatives and power consumption is a key consideration for any new machinery investments.
