Russell Roof Tiles has received a Planet Mark Business Certification, recognising the manufacture’s dedication to sustainability.
The Certification is an internationally recognised accreditation that a business can use to report on its carbon footprint and demonstrate progress.
Russell Roof Tiles has been investing in more energy-efficient equipment, optimising its production processes, and sourcing more sustainable materials as part of its Net Zero pledge.
This was outlined three years ago with the support of Planet Mark, to ensure the company becomes carbon neutral by 2040.
Russell Roof Tiles has successfully reduced its carbon emissions by 5.9% over the past year, higher than Planet Mark’s recommended target.
Daniel Hancox, business support manager at Russell Roof Tiles, commented: “We’re thrilled to have received certification from Planet Mark and to have made significant progress in reducing our carbon emissions. Sustainability is at the heart of our business, and we’re committed to doing our part in protecting the planet for future generations.”
Russell Roof Tiles is now looking at ways it can significantly reduce emissions in its supply chain and downstream activities (Scope 3) as well as work with other suppliers to establish their carbon data and verify a baseline from known data.
