Endurance Doors invests more than £300,000 in increased sustainability

Endurance Doors® – the designer and manufacturer of solid, secure, and stylish composite doors – has invested over £300,000 into 500 solar panels which have been installed on the roof of its main production facility in Brigg, North Lincolnshire.

The new panels build on an existing focus at Endurance Doors of only using electricity generated from renewable sources, rather than fossil fuels, throughout its manufacturing processes. They will also significantly reduce the company’s energy spend.

Stephen Nadin, Managing Director at Endurance Doors, said: “As a business, Endurance Doors is proud to be a leading advocate and adopter of more sustainable manufacturing practices for the fenestration and construction sectors.

“To date, we have made enormous strides in our drive to minimise our environmental impact but there is no room for complacency. We continue to look for new opportunities to increase our levels of sustainability and the installation of the solar panels at our Brigg factory reflects this relentless focus.”

The use of self-generated electricity from solar energy is just the latest in a long line of steps taken by Endurance Doors as part of its commitment to the environment. 

The business already plants two trees for every door it produces, sends zero waste to landfill, employs recycled material where possible, and aims to use virgin material from renewable, sustainably managed sources such as PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) and FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified forests.

Endurance Doors® has also become a corporate supporter of the World Land Trust (WLT) – an international conservation charity whose patrons include Sir David Attenborough, Chris Packham and Steve Backshall.

By partnering with the WLT, Endurance Doors has become carbon neutral with any unavoidable emissions from its operations being offset by investment into forests, biomass plantations and other sustainable means of carbon sequestration.

Concluding, Stephen adds: “The next decade is make or break when it comes to the environmental issues facing the Earth. In the last 12 months alone, we’ve seen stark evidence of the effects of climate change – from record-breaking unseasonal heatwaves to devasting floods.

“At Endurance Doors, we recognise our responsibility and the need for action rather than words. Anyone who buys our products can be confident they’ve been designed and manufactured with the future of the planet, as well as security and style, uppermost in mind.”
