Williams Jet Tenders celebrates world ocean day with release of first sustainability report

Williams Jet Tenders, the world's leading jet tender manufacturer, is proud to announce significant achievements in its sustainability journey as highlighted in its Sustainability Report, ‘Leaving a Clean Wake’.

Marking its 20th anniversary this year, Williams Jet Tenders has made considerable strides towards its vision of becoming a climate-positive business with notable progress in understanding its carbon emissions, and being able to reduce them. In total, Williams’ carbon emissions for 2023 were 258,540 kg CO2e, equivalent to 259 return passenger flights from London to New York.

Other key recognitions and initiatives from the Sustainability Report include:

  • Carbon saving – An estimated 2,700kg carbon saving and £7,819 cost saving were achieved by intercepting and reusing furniture that would have otherwise gone to landfill.
  • Reduction in emissions - Up to 97% less net CO2 emissions with HVO100 in selected DieselJet models and fleet vehicles compared to standard Diesel fuel.
  • Water conservation - The factory's test pond is now filled with re-used rainwater, reinforcing Williams' dedication to resource conservation.
  • Innovation in materials – Williams was awarded a £13,000 grant for research into natural fibre composite materials, promising a greener future for the marine industry.
  • Apprenticeship success - the company boasts a 100% retention rate of apprentices since the scheme began 13 years ago, underscoring its commitment to nurturing talent.
  • Community contributions - Over £34,000 was raised and donated to various charities and local community schemes

Mathew Hornsby, Commercial Director at Williams Jet Tenders, commented on these achievements: "At Williams, our passion for the marine environment drives us to innovate and lead in sustainability. We've made significant efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and explore new materials, all while maintaining the highest standards of quality and performance. Our commitment to sustainability is not just a choice but a responsibility we embrace for a better future."

Williams Jet Tenders continues to pioneer environmental initiatives, with comprehensive Life Cycle Assessments (LCA) completed for the TurboJet 325 and DieselJet 415 models. The company supports the MarineShift360 Life Cycle Assessment tool, enabling the marine industry to make informed, sustainable choices.

As Williams Jet Tenders reflects on two decades of success, the focus remains firmly on creating a positive legacy for future generations. By embedding sustainability across its operations and collaborating with supply partners, Williams is committed to leading the marine industry towards a more sustainable future.
