Hertel calculates its carbon footprint
The Hertel team in the UK is reviewing the impact it has on the environment by calculating its carbon footprint.
The level of carbon dioxide generated through Hertel’s industrial operations will be calculated using guidelines set out by the British governmental environment body, Defra. Following this, Hertel will then identify measures to reduce emissions.
The assessment will concentrate on three main areas of waste; utilities, fuel and business travel. Based on the results, Hertel will then be able to identify the areas where energy conservation is possible.
Alongside this, the company is investigating ways to decrease the effect its employees have on the environment. Staff will be asked for their opinions on environmental management and whether they are receptive to initiatives that minimise their own carbon footprint, such as car-share schemes.
In addition to contributing to a more sustainable future, the carbon footprint calculation will identify areas in which to increase efficiency.
Hertel employs around 3,500 staff in the UK working at plants and installations the length and breadth of the country.
Mark Glasper, Hertel’s National Quality Manager in the UK, commented: “With environmental impact becoming more and more important, it’s vital to consider our own energy consumption. We’ll be looking to introduce some simple steps to lessen our carbon footprint from the top down and work towards a more efficient operation.”
