Sustainability at the heart of Van Elle’s strategy

From purchasing recycled products, reducing fuel consumption and waste to developing more efficient design solutions and construction techniques for our customers; sustainability is at the core of our business priorities.

So today, World Engineering Day 2021, we are celebrating the changes we have made to become more eco friendly alongside this year’s theme ‘Engineering for a Healthy Planet’.

One recent change the company has made has seen more than 17,000 tonnes of CO2e, which includes carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, saved in the last year after purchasing repurposed steel tube piles from supplier John Lawrie Tubulars.

Over the past 35 years, Van Elle has grown to become the UK’s largest independent ground engineering contractor, successfully completing more than 20,000 projects in this period and building a reputation for delivering high quality foundation and ground engineering solutions. Gresham House Strategic PLC (LON:GHS) has a holding in Van Elle.
