At Polygon, we strive to reduce our impact on the environment with a focus on water, waste and energy.

Our core business of restoring damaged property contributes to a better environment by reducing the need for replacing inventory and equipment, as well as limiting the disposal of waste to landfill. Polygon has developed a range of restoration services that significantly reduce the need for original manufacture and the inherent costs on the environment in terms of raw material sourcing, processing, energy consumption and distribution.

We have innovative solutions to restore water-damaged machinery and vehicles that would ordinarily be subject to a total loss and sold as salvage. For electrical and IT equipment, we currently achieve a restoration rate in excess of 50 percent, and for lightly and moderately damaged goods, a rate of over 96 percent.

Further initiatives include Polygon’s leak detection services, which are non-destructive and therefore require very little reinstatement, and our ExactAire® system, which is the most advanced method available for monitoring the effectiveness of temporary control equipment, thereby minimising power usage.

Customer demands in Sweden led to the development of a Polygon-designed and engineered energy-efficient dryer, which reduces electricity cost and has faster drying performance than standard dryers.

In the UK we have rolled out an initiative called Lightfoot, which is aimed at reducing our carbon footprint by giving feedback to the driver of a vehicle on driving patterns. Carbon emissions have been reduced by five percent and the target is to reach ten percent.

Our aim is to implement best practices from successful local initiatives cross-border within Polygon.
