Covers, which has been nominated as a ‘Constituency Responsible Business Champion 2019’ by Gillian Keegan MP, is a keen advocate of eco-friendly initiatives. These include using electric forklifts and solar panels at its depots.

hope to improve our impact on the environment. We hope our customers will support us in our mission by only using a paper bag if absolutely necessary.”
