Envirofluid recognises the toll the recent fighting has had on Ukrainian refugees. When Rapid Relief Team put out the call for donations to Operation 322 in aid of the extraordinary humanitarian needs of those severely affected, our team knew that we had to help.
Together with numerous individuals and organisations, Envirofluid helped RRT reach and surpass their target of £250,000 and raised £382,500. RRT achieved its single biggest fundraising achievement yet, which was met within 20 hours of going live.
This is one more way we were able to work with global organisations like NATO and UNICEF in supporting a joint cause for a better world.

Since its establishment in 2012, Solider On has grown into Australia’s only national, fully integrated support services provider for members of the Australian Defence Force and their families.
The organisation supports those who have served and continue to serve in the ADF and has an excellent track record of providing practical and emotional assistance to veterans and their families as they transition to civilian life post-service.
Soldier On Australia is a non-profit organisation and one of the ways they are able to provide the much-needed support to veterans is through the help of companies and individuals who pledge their time and money for the cause.
In line with this, Solider On holds an event known as “March On”, a 96km march to support and raise funds for the organisation’s life-saving mental health services to help our brave veterans and their families. The 96km challenge represents the Kokoda Track and the men who defended it in the Second World War.

Envirofluid recognises the important work that Movember is doing in the field of men’s health.
Movember is a foremost global organisation dedicated to making a positive impact for men. It raises funds to deliver innovative, breakthrough research and support for men’s health projects so they can live longer and happier lives.
In this regard, an annual fundraising event is held which involves the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness concerning the health issues that plague men the world over. The Foundation focuses on funding projects centered around prostate cancer, testicular cancer, mental health and suicide prevention.

Countless businesses and countries around the world have announced that they are committing to “zero carbon” goals within the next few decades in answer to the worldwide call to combat climate change and its calamitous results.
Climate change is on the forefront of the world’s most pressing crises, and world leaders are running against the clock in an effort to beat back its effects. According to McKinsey Sustainability, climate change poses a significant physical risk, which will only continue to rise until emission reduction goals are achieved.
The discussion around climate action has introduced several terms to our vernacular, such as “zero carbon” and “net zero”. Often, these terms are used interchangeably; however, they are very different approaches in the fight against climate change.
Zero Carbon vs. Net Zero
Zero carbon means that there is no production of carbon emissions from a product or service. Therefore, there is no need to capture or offset carbon.
Meanwhile, net zero refers to the practice of balancing out the whole amount of greenhouse gas released with the amount removed from the atmosphere.
A Growing Demand
There has been a growing demand for organizations to reduce emissions the world over. This year, the UK hosted the UN Climate Change Conference COP26, which aims to bring world leaders together to commit to urgent global climate action and work towards the goals of the Paris Agreement and the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change.
COP26 goals include securing net zero and limiting global temperature rise to no more than 1.5 degrees Celsius, and adapting to protect communities and natural habitats.1
Several household-name businesses have recently answered the call and pledged to rapid decarbonization, such as Microsoft, Apple, Shell, Qantas, Rio Tinto, and BHP, to name a few. The pressure to eliminate carbon emissions, while initially faced only by governments and large companies, will eventually spread to small businesses.
What does this mean for your business? And why does your company need to commit to sustainable outcomes?
If they aren’t already in place, it won’t be long before government regulations, policies and laws will require businesses to adapt in order to avoid facing hefty compliance fees or suits. Sooner rather than later, companies who fail to keep in step with the global movement towards climate action will find the countries in which they operate making the decision for them, resulting in increased pressure to act. Not to mention, you can expect there to be mounting demand from your shareholders and customers to do so.
Shift to Sustainable Products
There are various ways for companies to establish and implement internal carbon strategies. One of these is by practicing sustainable procurement, which takes other factors into consideration, such as social, economic, and environmental aspects, alongside price and quality, in their purchasing processes. Companies that implement sustainable procurement factor in compliance with environmental laws in their considerations, and ensure that their suppliers are thoroughly vetted for fair labour practices. They also ensure the removal of hazardous materials and waste in the supply chain.
One way that Envirofluid helps its clients achieve their zero carbon goals through sustainable procurement is by providing industrial chemicals that are:
By using sustainable chemicals, your company will be one step closer to achieving your climate action goals and doing your part in the global race against time to fight climate change. By baking in sustainable procurement into your zero carbon strategy now, you will not only be preventing costly environmental compliance fees, you will also reap benefits including increased innovation, risk management, competitive advantage, and business growth.
Lean Manufacturing is a proven business philosophy that has helped countless organizations throughout the years. The principle constantly challenges companies to enhance and innovate in order to achieve efficiency and rise above the growing competition in the global market. Using Envirofluid products provide clients with the benefits of lean manufacturing.
Originating from the well-known automotive company, Toyota, as part of its Toyota Production System, lean manufacturing (also referred to as lean production or kaizen, which means improvement), involves a series of processes that aims to maximize productivity and increase levels of production whilst minimising waste of material and labour.
The process includes “just-in-time” manufacturing, where companies keep inventory at low levels in an as-needed basis, and reduction of downtime. In a nutshell, the objective of lean manufacturing is to eliminate that which does not add value to the product, company and customer, and delivering the best possible product to clients quickly and with as fewer obstacles as possible.
So how can Envirofluid products help your company with your lean objectives?
Lean Benefits of Envirofluid Chemistries

Kaizen – change for good
Because Envirofluid products can often be used with equipment in situ, reducing the need for dismantling of items for maintenance, downtimes are shortened (to over 90 percent in some cases) resulting in fewer delays.
Muda – Reducing waste/wasteful activity
The bio-based and biodegradable formulation of Envirofluid products ensure less waste resulting in significant reduction in waste disposal costs.
Reduced Inventory Requirements
Mura – Reducing inconsistencies
With our range of versatile chemicals, businesses need not stock up on numerous products for different applications. In addition, because Envirofluid chemicals are also highly concentrated, a little goes a long way, helping with stock control.
