In December 2020 Ethical Consumer viewed the Navitron website for the company's environmental policy or report. No such information could be found. An environmental policy was deemed necessary to report on a company's environmental performance and set targets for reducing its impacts in the future. A strong policy would include two future, quantified environmental targets, demonstration by the company that it had a reasonable understanding of its main environmental impacts, be dated within two years and have its environmental data independently verified.
However, the company was considered to be providing environmental alternative products: it only sold renewable energy and heating products. It also sold a small number of bamboo and "sustainable glass" homeware items.
Due to the fact the company had a turnover of less than £10.2 million and was considered to be providing an environmental alternative it received an exemption under Ethical Consumer's Environmental Reporting category.
Overall, therefore, Navitron received Ethical Consumer's middle rating for Environmental Reporting and lost half a mark in this category.
