Sidey - Leading The Way For A Better Planet

Sidey is Scotland’s strongest fenestration company, taking their green responsibilities very seriously, for the benefit of their staff, customers, local communities, and the planet in general.

In June 2019, the UK passed laws to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050. This means that there are stringent targets to meet to instigate the necessary changes required, particularly when it comes to housing.

Making the environment a priority is nothing new to us at Sidey. As Scotland’s strongest fenestration company, we take our green responsibilities very seriously, for the benefit of our staff, customers, local communities, and the planet in general.

The innovative range of windows, doors, and conservatory products that we manufacture have been designed to achieve impressive levels of thermal efficiency, cutting down on energy waste and reducing the carbon footprint of properties.

We were one of the first window and door manufacturers in Britain to gain ISO EMS 14001 accreditation and one of the first to achieve the latest EMS 14001-2015 certification, the highest environmental standard available in the UK.

In 2008, we set two big targets. The first was to send zero waste to landfill and the second was to attain 100 percent recycling from our manufacturing waste – we gave ourselves 10 years to achieve this.

After a lot of hard work and total commitment to these goals, we hit both targets in 2015 – three years early – and have maintained them ever since.

Sidey make all of these commitments so that we can pass the benefits on to our customers in the hope of making their jobs a little easier.
