Applelec Projects Eco Friendly Pledge supporting sustainability.
Applelec is a proud winner of Made in Britain's sustainability awards.
Applelec was shortlisted for Made in Britain's sustainability awards for our Eco Friendly Pledge initiative.

As a responsible manufacturer operating in a sector with high waste material, Applelec is committed to finding ways to be more sustainable, both as a company and in the products we supply. With temperatures reaching an all time high at a staggering 40.3°C* in some areas of the UK recently, it’s time to act now in our fight against climate change. ​

The UK government has mandated that every UK business must reach net-zero by 2050 or before and at Applelec we take our impact on the environment seriously.​ Inspired by the Earthshot prize, which challenges the global community over the next decade, to come up with innovative ways to help repair the planet under 5 focus areas, we decided to take on our own challenge for 2022, which we have encapsulated into our Applelec Eco Friendly pledge.

​Our Eco Friendly Pledge is our promise to look at ways, big and small, to influence four key areas including, Nature, Climate, Waste and Manufacturing. This directs our activity as a company into areas that will positively influence our impact on the environment. 

With our Research and Development team (R&D), along with our Carbon Footprint Committee we are putting in place changes that can be made to our manufacturing procedures as well as product improvements to continue providing superior, brilliant signage and lighting products for our clients that promote sustainable design.

Eco engineering

Our growing eco-friendly range of products includes the first, fully environmentally friendly light panel, Green Applelec LED Light Sheet, as well as slimline eco lightboxes and eco signage

Along with this, our team of innovators and designers can eco engineer any of our products to offer environmentally friendly alternative components that are bespoke to your requirements.

Carbon offsetting


Applelec Projects in partnership with reforestation charity for carbon offsetting.


As our eco products such as Green Applelec LED Light Sheet is manufactured at our West Yorkshire premises, this helps significantly reduce contribution towards global emissions when compared against similar lighting products being shipped from overseas, where inevitably the CO2 impact will be greater.

Applelec Projects is part of the Made in Britain community.



As well as looking at what differences we could make to our company procedures, we have teamed up with the non-profit organisation JUST ONE Tree, who are doing amazing work in the fight against climate change.

Their aim is to reverse biodiversity loss and remove CO2 from the atmosphere, through partnering with carefully selected reforestation organisations across the globe. These projects hire and train local community members to plant native trees and care for them through to maturity. 

As part of this, for every eco product ordered, we will plant a tree on our clients' behalf, helping to contribute to the JUST ONE Tree's important reforestation scheme.

These environmentally friendly alternatives are manufactured at our West Yorkshire premises, guaranteeing the same high-quality solutions our clients expect and trust from us, but with the added bonus of being a kinder option on the environment. 

Applelec Projects waste management scheme.


Recycling is vital for the preservation of the planet and an important factor in Applelec Project's environmental strategy. We engage several processes and organisations to ensure we make every effort to recycle and prevent waste going to landfill.


We partnered with a carbon neutral waste and recycling firm, where 60% of our collected materials are recycled into new materials and the remaining 40% is used to create energy. The firm then offset their operational carbon footprint via reforestation efforts.  


If we are unable to re-use offcut material elsewhere in the business, we then have a number of local businesses that we work with to responsibly recycle these, reducing pollution as well as diverting waste from landfill to further protect the environment. 

Applelec Projects' eco friendly supply chain.


Having good relationships within our supply chain and making them aware that we are constantly looking for more sustainable options to integrate within our product range is key to our strategy.

In having access to new materials and components allows us as product developers and manufacturers to eco engineer our solutions and provide eco-friendly alternatives for our customers.

Teaming up with like-minded organisations in our fight against climate change

Applelec Projects are part of the Green Growth Programme.



As part of our membership, we have partaken in the Made in Britain Green Growth Assessment, which measures how our business is performing in terms of our carbon footprint.

From this we are able to better understand the progress we are making with our current eco procedures, as well as provide information for us to map out our path to fine tune our sustainability journey.

Applelec Projects are members of the dc community.


Design Conformity (dc) is an organisation that helps bring retail brands more sustainable retail display equipment and products for improved alignment to the retail supply chain.

The dc mark is the first independent quality and sustainability design standard for retail display solutions and helps supports its members to reduce their greenhouse gas contributions.

Submitting our eco-friendly solutions, Green Applelec LED Light Sheet and our eco Lightbox have gone through rigorous testing to ensure our systems comply with the Retail Design Guidance and supplementary requirements.


Meeting these mandatory standards, we are proud Green Applelec LED Light Sheet is recognised as a dc approved product, demonstrating our adherence to high quality products, and a commitment to sustainable practices.

Applelec Projects is WEEE compliant for our architectural lighting solutions.


Each year, as much as 2 million tonnes of WEEE (waste electrical and electronic equipment) items end up in landfill when they could easily be recycled. With many harmful materials in their assembly, electronic devices in landfill cause significant environmental damage:

  • Contaminate surrounding areas

  • Kill living species

  • Take up more space than most other landfill waste

Comply Direct is a market leading environmental consultancy and compliance scheme, who support organisations to achieve their sustainability obligations and aspirations. We have partnered with Comply Direct to help us with our WEEE obligations that require UK businesses to:

  • Minimise waste arising from their electrical and electronic equipment products and promote their reuse

  • Ensure waste products are treated correctly and meet recovery and recycling targets for the waste materials

  • Design products by reducing material use and enhancing reusability and recyclability
