Environmental Policy

Draper Tools and the Environment

It is a requirement in the UK to minimise the disposal of Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE) to landfill and to achieve high levels of collection of WEEE for environmentally sound treatment.

Draper Tools are a member of the Valpak Distributor Take Back Scheme for Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE).

What is your role in the identifying, reusing and recycling of waste electrical products?

Where should you take waste electrical products?

As one of the leading tool companies for the procurement and distribution of automotive, hand, gardening, power, pneumatic, static power tools and other products, Draper Tools seeks to maximize modern technologies which are clearly deemed to promote and protect the efficient use of the world's resources without detriment to its inhabitants.

Draper Tools recognizes that in our day-to-day operations we inevitably have an impact on the environment in a number of ways and we wish to minimize the potentially harmful effects of such activity wherever and whenever possible.

As part of our continuing drive for quality in all the things we do, we have developed this comprehensive policy statement. This will enable us to set objectives and promote the targets by which our efforts are displayed towards sustainable environmental improvement that can be measured and monitored on a continual basis. To this end, we have established a Management System which complies to ISO14001:2015

In this way we aim to protect the health and safety of our employees and our customers whilst contributing to the future well-being of the environment. We have undertaken to help every employee to understand and implement the relevant aspects of this policy in their day-to-day work through the regular communication of objectives, action plans and achievements. Our Managing Director has accepted specific responsibility for policy development and authorized a senior Director of the company to coordinate and evaluate the performance of our environmental programme.

We are committed to minimising the impact of our operations on the environment by means of a programme of continuous improvement. In particular, Draper Tools Limited will:

  • Commit to the protection of the environment, including prevention of pollution.
  • Meet and where appropriate exceed the requirements of current and future relevant legislation;
  • Fulfil our compliance obligations.
  • Seek to reduce consumption of materials in all operations, reuse rather than dispose whenever possible and promote recycling and the use of recycled materials in our activities;
  • Design energy efficiency into processes, services, buildings and manage energy wisely in all our operations;
  • Reduce where practical the level of harmful emissions;
  • Market products that are safe to use, are fit for purpose and conform to all applicable environmental and other legislation;
  • Work with and monitor our suppliers to minimize the impact of their operations on the environment through our quality purchasing policy which includes human rights, moral and ethical issues relative to the country in which they operate;
  • Site our buildings, structures and operational plant so that we minimize visual, noise and other impacts on the local environment;
  • Support through our quality programme the promotion of environmental protection;
  • Include environmental issues in all programmed meetings i.e. management reviews, discussions with our customers and suppliers, our training programmes and employee groups and encourage the implementation of sound environmental practices with all interested parties;
  • Monitor environmental performance.
  • Continue to improve the environmental management system to enhance environmental performance.

This environmental policy is communicated at all levels within Draper Tools Limited and confirms the commitment of our Directors, Managers and Employees to our environmental programme of continuous improvement.

Ethical Trading
We work with and monitor our supply chain for human rights, moral and ethical issues. We seek as part of our ongoing "Supplier Assessment Audit Programme" to ensure that factories demonstrate good working conditions and operate sound practices.

Corporate Social Responsibility

Draper Tools is committed to continually reviewing the impact of our business on our customers, suppliers and employees. We recognise a local and global accountability in managing and developing an active approach to the key challenges that corporate social responsibility brings to our business.

We are proud to be supporting the Haynes Mechanix project with the supply of tools to kit out their workshop. It’s a really worthwhile initiative and we are very pleased to be involved with the project. The project teaches young people all the essential, practical aspects of maintaining and repairing a car. It feels very rewarding to know that our tools are being put to such good use, helping young people to acquire useful skills for life and earn a valuable qualification too.

Eastleigh Southern Parishes Men’s Shed

We are delighted to be supporting local organisation, Eastleigh Southern Parishes Men’s Shed, part of the international Men’s Sheds Association.

Some of you may know about the Men’s Sheds organisation and the supportive, friendly environment it provides. Originating in Australia, it aims to address some of the issues facing older men such as a losing a sense of purpose with the loss of their work role, status, workmates and income. Today there are many ‘Mens’s Sheds’ around the UK, where members come together to work on practical tasks and projects.

We’re very pleased to be working with our local Men’s Shed by donating a range of tools including chisels, spanner sets, saws and more. We look forward to seeing the members putting their new tools to good use in the local community.

Gender Pay Gap Report


Each year, employers with 250 or more employees must publish and report specific figures about their gender pay gap. Draper Tools Limited have submitted their latest report to the government online.

View our gender pay gap report

Who Works at Draper Tools?

The gender pay gap is the average difference between the remuneration for men and women, and the UK Government introduced new regulations in 2017 with the aim of bridging that gap.

Gender pay gap sometimes gets confused with equal pay i.e. different levels of pay for the same work: something which has been illegal since the 1970 Equal Pay Act.

Of course, in any company a gender pay gap will occur if the top jobs are held by male members of staff, despite paying male and female employees the same amount for similar roles. At Draper Tools, all our Board members are male, something possibly to be expected in what tends to be a male orientated industry.

However, the Company prides itself in following a well-developed, fair recruitment process and in providing the same training and development opportunities to both its male and female employees.

Gender Pay Gap Reporting

On 6th April 2017, the Equality Act 2010 (Gender Pay Gap Information) Regulations 2017 came into force. They require businesses with 250 employees or more to publish information annually stating the differences in both the average pay and bonuses of their male and female employees.

Pay at Draper Tools Limited

The gender pay and bonus gap are based on a snapshot taken in March 2019. When reviewing the figures, need to recognise that at Draper Tools Limited:

  • A higher proportion of men work in more senior, higher paid roles
  • A higher proportion of women work in more junior, lower paid roles
  • More women work part-time than men

This is in line with a common theme seen across the UK work force.

We also need to be mindful that the tool industry tends to be male orientated.

What Improvements/Initiatives are Under Way?

Draper Tools want to be an ‘employer of choice’ and are committed to creating an environment where all our employees can achieve their professional goals. We have already introduced several new initiatives that support that commitment:

  • The Company is investing significantly in leadership development training for the middle management team and the Board. We aim to continue that investment with newly appointed middle and senior managers.
  • A number of middle and junior managers are looking to gain formal qualifications in management.
  • Apprenticeships are being delivered in some areas of our business.
  • A new appraisal system has been rolled out across the organisation, focusing on development of our employees. Training needs are being extracted from those appraisals.
  • We have already commenced work on introducing meaningful salary structures into the business and further work is planned in this area.
