At MJ Flood Technology, we recognize the part we play in tackling climate change and are committed to supporting a more sustainable world. As a prominent Irish tech company, we understand the influence of technology on the environment and are taking action to reduce our carbon footprint. We are striving to make a positive impact on the planet by implementing eco-friendly initiatives and encouraging sustainable practices.
We take immense pride in our sustainability statistics as they reflect the consistent effort made by our team. Due to the high level of activity within our warehouse, our staff have implemented a strict regime to ensure that all plastic removed from our deliveries are correctly recycled. Our 2021 recycling statistics displayed below exhibit the high standard that we maintain in regard to the recycling of excess materials.
At MJ Flood, we prioritize the proper disposal of electronic and plastic waste. Last year, our WEEE statistics totalled an impressive 193,832 kilograms of electronics such as monitors, computers and ink cartridges. As we move into 2021, we remain committed to reducing our environmental impact and are proud to report our continued efforts in the proper disposal of all e-waste.
In 2022, MJ Flood achieved a major milestone with the installation of a solar panel array at their headquarters in Baldonnell, County Dublin. This remarkable array has provided 80% of the energy needs of the building during the workweek and has even returned some energy to the national grid on weekends. The company has also made strides in reducing their carbon footprint, having upgraded their lighting and heating systems. This remarkable accomplishment is a testament to MJ Flood’s commitment to reducing their environmental impact.
Since 2020, all company cars provided to management on behalf of MJ Flood have been electric vehicles. We are encouraging our wider team members to make the transition to electric vehicles where possible. Alongside this transition, we have installed electric charging ports at our headquarters.

We strive to create a positive impact on the environment and our community by delivering innovative solutions that make it easier for people to reduce their carbon footprint.
