Our Road to Zero

Daver Steels: Getting Greener

Daver Steels is proud to be one of the smallest companies that holds membership to the BCSA. The British Constructional Steelwork Association (BCSA) is the trade body for UK & Irish Steelwork Contractors and the wider structural steelwork supply chain. To help reduce the industry’s environmental impact, the BCSA & its members have committed to becoming Net Zero by 2050. Daver Steels set an ambitious target to become carbon neutral by 2030.

Our team is passionate about lessening the impact we have on the local and wider environment by adopting sustainable practices and responsibly sourcing environmentally friendly products were possible.

We continue to look at ways of reducing waste & making efficiency savings throughout the business. Work began in Q4 2022 on achieving certification for ISO 14001 Environmental Management (EMS).

2022 also saw Daver Steels making significant investment into improvements to our building, including the installation of over 550 solar panels onto the roof of the factory. These panels give us the capacity to generate a predicted 50% of our own electricity annual average.

In combination with the 0% carbon for business energy tariff we have committed to, we are able to report zero carbon emissions for our electricity supply. With this acceleration, we believe Daver Steels are likely to have become carbon neutral by 2025, if not before!
