Ecoprod, a family-owned and run company with many years’ experience in the mechanical and building industries, has achieved certification to The Planet Mark.
This is Ecoprod ’s 6th year of business carbon footprint reporting. Ecoprod’s total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2019 was 11.5 tCO2e, a decrease of 40.1% from the year ending 2018. The relative carbon footprint was 2.31 tCO2e per employee, a decrease of 16.2% compared to the year ending 2018.
It first calculated the carbon footprint of its main office in Surrey for the year ending December 2014 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually. This year’s footprint includes emissions from natural gas, purchased electricity, transmission and distribution losses, fuel used by the fleet, water, waste, business travel and printing paper. Electricity emissions decreased by 17.3% and travel emissions decreased by 50%.
Steve Malkin, CEO and Founder of The Planet Mark, said: “The heart of Ecoprod beats sustainably, and its incredible results in its sixth year with us show that huge steps can continue to be made to measure and reduce the carbon footprint of a company. The company’s dedication to environmental change is clear to see, and they serve is an exemplar for thousands of its customers in the way it conducts business.”
Certification to The Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.
Ecoprod provide products, applications and solutions in a world where vital resources are running low and the environment is at risk. In particular, it has identified that the washroom environment is one that has traditionally been wasteful of water and energy resources, and supplies a range of environmentally friendly products to some of the largest retailers, hoteliers and businesses in the world. Its efficient systems help businesses save water and reduce carbon emissions while maintaining hygienic surroundings.
Those working in the water industry, and businesses with big water footprints, have a big role to play in fighting climate change. The majority of the UK’s water supply is already under stress, and demand for water is increasing by 1% per year. The cost of inefficient water systems is enormous, wasting depleting resources at alarming rates. As we enter a decade of climate action, businesses of all types need to measure and make efforts to reduce their water usage.
