We are working on a number of efficient measures in house as well as supporting external emission reduction projects.
We strive to reduce all waste and energy consumption and in 2017 became one of the first major exporters to become carbon neutral.
Working with Liverpool John Moores University, we identified the areas that we could become more energy efficient by carrying out an assessment of our usage, and officially enrolled in the UN Certified Emission Reduction (CER) Scheme, which results in Government certified carbon neutral status.
In addition to this, we are offsetting our omissions by investing in the Americas Project by Carbon Footprint Limited. This scheme means our carbon offsetting will be used to support projects in the Americas region that also deliver additional social and ecological benefits.
The projects we will be supporting are;
As well as being certified carbon neutral, there are lots of other ways that we’re committing to reduce our impact on the environment.
Our head office site has had solar panels on the roof for 6 years. Not only does it help keep energy bills down but it helps to reduce our carbon footprint. Our 30 kW (115 panels) solar PV system helps our business reduce its CO2 emissions by a massive 16 tonnes per annum. Recycling is a big part of our business mainly made up of cardboard, paper and plastic shrink wrap.
Everything is recycled with our carbon neutral approved waste management company.
By recycling more and avoiding landfill, it helps reduce the business’ Carbon Footprint.
We have embarked on a new project to transform our site in order to make it more green and help with our carbon footprint.
We will be transforming the area by planting trees, flowers as well as electric car charge points and reusing rainwater.
