All CAEM machinery and manufacturing equipment was chosen with the environment in mind.


CAEM has installed extensive Solar panels across it's estate.

CO2 Offsetting

Each year CAEM offsets it's CO2 to minimise its impact on the environment.

For the Environment

CO2 Offsetting

CO2 Offsetting 

CAEM invests in certified CO2 offsetting projects.

In 2023 we offset 450 tCO2e.

Rail Freight

Transport via Rail

CAEM has transferred a large amount of its transportation from road to rail. This dramatically reduced the pollution produced, every load transferred from road to rail saves around 850kg of CO2, plus NOx and Rubber pollution, amongst others.

In 2023 we saved 46 tCO2e.

Extensive Solar


We operate 160kW of solar panels, producing around 130MWh of power each year.

This saves 28tCO2e each year.

On a sunny day, our factory electricity is wholly provided by the sun!

Redused Plastic Wastage

Reduced Plastic Waste

With millions of tons of plastic ending up in landfill or in the environment each year. CAEM has made a pledge to reduce it's plastic use to a minimum. To this end it introduced improved wrapping techniques across its manufacturing facilities that use 60% less plastic.

Reverse Logisitcs

Reverse Logistics

CAEM does not only manufacture and sell retail shelving and fixtures. We also support retailers in the remanufacture, repair and renovation of these GNFR items. This both saves money for the client and reduces the impact on the environment.

This saves >300 tCO2e each year.

Heat Recovery

Heat Recovery

The state powder coating system uses an advanced Heat Exchanger that reuses the heat generated during the curing process for the pre-treatment tunnel. This reuses the energy from around 150MW (13,500M3) of gas per year.

This saves  28 tCO2e each year.

Move to Natural Gas

Gas not Diesel

As the business has expanded the need for energy across our shelving manufacturing facilities has grown also. We have already subsidised our electricity use through the installation of solar panels, but for the extra power also needed a greener solution. That is why we've invested in the latest Gas technology and ditched traditional diesel.

This saves 28% of CO2 emissions.


Electric Press Brakes

Electric Press Brakes

The Press Brakes installed in our shelving plant were chosen based on their performance, but also on their energy usage. Instead of hydraulic machines we opted for electric to reduce our environmental impact and aim for more energy efficient manufacturing.

Reverse Vending Machines


CAEM's business unit "Recyclever" manufactures Reverse Vending Machines.

These are automated return points that enhance the collection rate and recycling of bottles and cans.
