We are working on a number of efficient measures in house as well as supporting external emission reduction projects.
Smylies strives to reduce all waste and energy consumption, with 2017 being the year we became one of the first major exporters to be certified as carbon neutral.
Working in partnership with Liverpool John Moores University, we carried out an assessment of our usage and identified areas where our business could become more energy efficient.
From this, Smylies officially enrolled on the UN Certified Emission Reduction (CER) Scheme, which results in Government certified carbon neutral status.
With a total installed capacity of 80MQ and the involvement of 40 Wind Turbine Generators (WTGs), this project focuses on the installation and maintenance of wind turbines in the Maharashtra state, India.
Generating electricity through solar energy, the electricity generated through this project is exported to India’s regional electricity grid system. The key goal of the project is to implement multiple renewable energy projects across the country, as well as sustainable employment that reduces poverty in India.
This project will supply clean and renewable energy to the national grid of Uruguay from wind power. The onshore wind farm located 280km north of Montevideo, will have 25 wind turbines with 2MW each, creating an overall installed capacity of 50MW.
Key goals of the project include, significantly reducing air pollutants and reducing greenhouse gas emissions, as well as creating a new source of employment.
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;
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.
