Instarmac reduces carbon footprint by 16% in just one year

We have all heard the term ‘carbon footprint’ and know we should be doing something to minimise it. Instarmac have spent the last two years researching sustainable manufacturing processes and have set targets to reduce their carbon footprint as much as possible.

The Committee on Climate Change, the UK’s government official climate advisory body, have reported the UK’s targets for the next decade are “likely” to be insufficient, ‘given the increased goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050’.

As a world-class manufacturer, Instarmac know they have a responsibility to control and reduce their carbon dioxide levels as much as possible and employ effective procedures to streamline operations and increase efficiency – all with the aim of reducing their carbon footprint as much as possible.

In 2019, Instarmac’s carbon footprint was measured at 3893.8 tonnes CO₂E, meaning they had an average footprint of 21.6 tonners per employee. Following the successful implementation of a number of environmental initiatives, Instarmac are delighted to report that in 2020, their carbon footprint was measured at 3303.53 tonnes per CO₂E – a 16% improvement compared to the previous year.

That’s not all. This means Instarmac now have an average footprint of 18.05 tonnes per employee – a significant decrease and a huge achievement for Instarmac. For Instarmac, reducing their carbon footprint will always be important and with that in mind, they aim to reduce it by a further 5% by the end of 2022.
