Muntons has engaged with its supplier of electricity to ensure 100% of its electricity is sourced from green sources. The resultant carbon footprint of its operations has reduced by 18% saving 11,900 tonnes CO2 a year.
Muntons has been keenly focussed on being a low environmental impact company for many years. In 2011 it was crowned as Sustainable Manufacturer of the year by ‘The Manufacturer’ in conjunction with Siemens and RBS and again a finalist in the competition in 2013. This latest improvement in environmental protection is part of its commitment to being truly sustainable.
Muntons supplier of electricity chooses to generate and supply Muntons from a number of green sources of electricity such as hydro, wind, biomass, municipal waste and solar photovoltaic arrays. The resultant carbon footprint of electricity supply is reduced by 90%.
Muntons Manufacturing and Sustainability Director, Dr Nigel Davies said “It is essential that any reduction in environmental impact is a real saving. Reflecting the importance Muntons places on true corporate sustainability we have now adopted the strapline of ‘Practical Sustainability – P.S. it’s no afterthought’. Sustainability is a core value that protects the environment and our business and enables us to find a competitive edge and protect local jobs.”
