Nuaire boosts its environmental credentials

Published:  08 July, 2010

CAERPHILLY: Nuaire has become the first ventilation manufacturer in the UK to achieve the Carbon Trust Standard, an award for organisations that can provide evidence of measuring, manufacturing and reducing their carbon footprint against the strictest criteria.

The company has been working in partnership with the Carbon Trust for the past five years to significantly reduce the environmental impact of its sites and supply chain. It is committed to regular environmental audits to ensure it continues to achieve the highest possible standards, measuring, monitoring and reducing its energy usage, targeting CO2 reduction and providing new targets for sustainability.

The company has gone on to obtain Green Dragon Level 5 as well as ISO 14001 accreditation. It has consistently reduced its energy use by 2.5% year on year, has achieved a reduction of over 16% in energy use (KwH) since 2007 and a 20% reduction in waste to landfill in just twelve months.

Commenting on its commitment to the environment, Nuaire’s Environmental Manager Mark Bird said: “Reducing the environmental impact of our business is a high priority for Nuaire. Attaining the Carbon Trust Standard provides us with a credible way to demonstrate our sustainable carbon reduction achievements clearly to our customers and our competitors."
