James Knight is committed to using the most energy-saving, environmentally friendly and sustainable methods in the packaging and distribution of our products - as well as the running of our office and production area.
How we package our fish
The stock we purchase arrives to us in bulky polystyrene boxes, which can amount to hundreds of boxes every week; thanks to our investment in a compactor, these are now all recycled for building insulation.
For the next stage of the process – distributing to our customers – we use fish boxes that are made from recycled compostable cardboard.
How we ship and transport the fish
70% of our transport fleet is powered by LPG rather than diesel, which has dramatically reduced our CO2 emissions. Our investment in a logistical software programme has also aided us in reducing our mileage.
How we run our office and production facility
We undertake regular carbon audits of our office and working practices to ensure we are doing everything we can to reduce our carbon footprint. These include increasing the energy efficiency of our chillers and cooling system and increasing recycling of paper, plastic and glass.
We have also introduced a water management programme which has reduced our usage by 25% over the previous year.
