At J Adams & Co., we are focused on improving the way we do business and aim to continue to develop sustainably as we grow. We have a commitment to our customers, employees and the planet to design and manufacture lighting with little to no impact on the environment. Central to this is manufacturing everything in the UK, recycling where possible and offsetting our carbon footprint.

MADE IN THE UK

Built to Last

J Adams & Co. prides itself on designing and manufacturing lighting in the UK with a focus on longevity. We use only the highest quality materials and best practices, resulting in truly authentic products that stand the test of time.

Our aim is to create timeless pieces that are built to last and can be passed down for generations, reducing our impact on the environment and distancing ourselves from the ‘throwaway culture’ of today.

Repairing and Refurbishing

Our dedicated team of lighting experts are also on-hand to repair and refurbish any damaged products; further increasing the overall longevity of our lights.

RECYCLING & CIRCULARITY

WEEE Recycling

As a producer of household and non-household Electrical and Electronic Equipment (EEE), we have an obligation to finance the collection, treatment, recycling, and environmentally-sound disposal of a percentage of that EEE when it becomes Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment (WEEE). We are a registered WEEE producer, with registration number WEE/AX5710YF.

Materials

The primary materials used across our collections are brass, glass and natural stone. Every light is also made to order, reducing the chance of waste parts or dead stock.

Brass has the capacity to be recycled an infinite number of times, which has significant environmental and economic advantages. Any offcuts or scrap materials produced during the manufacturing process are also repurposed and reused.

Glass is an infinitely recyclable material, and the recycling process is less energy-intensive compared to other materials, resulting in a smaller carbon footprint.

Our stone, from travertine to alabaster, is sourced from Italian or Spanish quarries, where there is an abundant supply of natural material. This natural material can also be easily re-sanded, re-sealed and repaired so, if cared for properly, has an infinite lifespan.

LED Light Sources

We always use and recommend LED bulbs, as they are the most energy-efficient option available and are constantly developing and improving. Wherever possible we employ user replaceable LED light sources in our products. In general, these bulbs/light sources have a lifetime of over 25,000 hours, but in the event of a failure we ensure that this part can be easily replaced – even at home by the customer.

Packaging

100% of our packaging is recyclable. Additionally, the outer cartons are made with at least 50% recycled board, and the inner packaging is manufactured using at least 30% recycled material. We continually review our product packaging to determine if there are any further opportunities to use less materials without compromising on protection.

OFFSETTING CARBON

Managing Miles

J Adams & Co. are devoted to using local materials and a local workforce. All our products are manufactured at our Birmingham-based metalworks which not only supports the British industry but importantly reduces our reliance on imports from abroad. Minimising the travel footprint in our supply chain helps us to reduce our impact on the environment.

Our Partners

We currently offset the carbon produced by each of our workers and for all business travel through a programme called Ecologi that funds climate projects and plants a tree for every light sold. You can read more about how we are becoming a climate positive workforce here.

We also use Fedex as our international delivery partner. Fedex are committed to carbon-neutral operations by 2040 – find out more here.
