This certification demonstrates the company's commitment to measuring, managing and reducing carbon emissions across the company, in line with the sector's strategy to be carbon neutral by 2030.
“Achieving CEMARS certification is pivotal in enabling us to now start the implementation of our carbon strategy. A great piece of cross-department teamwork in collating all the data to gain our carbon baseline, which will continue with on-going measurement as we look to build a portfolio of initiatives to drive carbon reduction”.
This achievement is a significant milestone in Stonbury's carbon reduction journey, which involves continuing plans to put effective emission reduction processes in place.
Stonbury will be focusing on the reduction of their gas oil and diesel usage, which were highlighted as the two dominant contributors to their carbon footprint during their previous certification period.
“To support OFWAT’s target we are moving from annual to monthly reporting and delivering regular toolbox talks to increase carbon and environmental consciousness throughout Stonbury. We are also looking to put in place carbon effective measures to continuously improve our carbon footprint, part of this will involve finding viable alternatives to gas oil and diesel, as this represents the two largest emission sources in our carbon footprint”.
