10 Ways We're Making A Difference

What are we doing?

Here at Mainline - like more and more people - we are interested in reducing the impact we have on the planet.

We have a team dedicated to making sure that every decision we make has been considered from an environmental perspective.

With the recent acquisition of KC Glass, we are excited to extend our sustainability principles and strategies to an additional site. Up to this point, we have focussed on Mainline's Langar site. We will now work hard to continue our sustainability pledge across both sites.

Our Products

We are very proud of the products we offer and the choice we provide to our customers.

Our Operations

We have scrutinised how we work from customer journey paperwork to how we maintain our premises and grounds. We are always trying to find more ways to improve our environmental performance. For example we have made significant improvements with our recycling strategies and in our move towards fully recyclable and reusable packaging.

Our Partners

It is important that our partners share the same environmental and social values and objectives that we do. We are working hard with our distribution partners and suppliers to achieve an eco-responsible logistics and purchasing journey.

ISO14001 : 2015  Environmental Management Standard

We've done it again!

Mainline achieved ISO14001 accreditation in 2023. Each year, we are audited by an external agency to ensure our Environmental Management System is robust and effective. We are pleased to announce that we have successfully retained our accreditation in 2024!

Our accreditation provides assurance that we are committed to a programme of continual improvement to assess and reduce all environmental aspects as a result of our business, and their impacts.

We will continue to be auditted annually to ensure we are maintaining these standards.

Find out more about the ISO14001 standard here.


Mainline and it’s sister company, Husqui, commissioned Hillside Environmental Services in 2020 to evaluate our environmental impact and assess our carbon footprint.

This report helped to identify what we are doing well and where we can do better. Hillside recommended initiatives that have shaped our environmental policy, procedures and action plan.

Hillside are currently reassessing Mainline and Husqui's carbon footprint. This will help to establish how close we are to achieving our 2025 carbon neutral target.
