Businesses currently account for around half of the UK’s carbon emissions. But one of the fastest ways to save money and fight climate change is to reduce the amount of energy used. With this in mind, Capital Vending has taken a proactive approach to social responsibility, leading in terms of green innovation, design, supply chain, management, production techniques and waste management Responsible Purchasing and Distribution

• British Manufacturers used where possible which means shorter logistical paths and a reduced carbon
footprint
• All free-standing beverage machines transported in long-life re-usable cases which reduces the use of
cardboard, polystyrene and wooden pallets
• Companies used which purchase up to 90% of their components sourced from the UK
Exceptional Recycling Properties
• Recycled materials used wherever possible including plastic mouldings
• In-house paint plant recycles heat from drying process for the final baking cycle and over 90% of oversprayed
powder coating is re-used
• All spare parts distributed in re-used boxes
Long Operational Life
• Construction of machines that are of a robust nature to ensure operational longevity and have
refurbishment centres that cost effectively extend the working life of equipment which further reduces
waste and reliance on land fill.
Environmentally Friendly Construction
• Hot and Cold Beverage Machines:
• Programmable energy management system reduces power consumption by up to 30%
• Flash cooling technology means electricity is only consumed when a chilled drink selection is actually
made
• Gravity fed paperless brewer uses less energy than a pressurised system
• Permanent refillable ingredient canisters mean less packaging, waste and cost (compared with in-cup
machines)
• 50,000 hour, long life LED lighting means no-more mercury gas filled light tubes to replace and sleek
design eliminates the need for additional lighting
• Cup sensor allows the use of own cup, mug, jug or bottle which reduces waste
