Abbey Corrugated is the First Manufacturer to be recertified with the Carbon Trust Standard

January 2011: Abbey Corrugated has been recertified with the Carbon Trust Standard for successfully measuring, managing and reducing its carbon emissions across its site in Blunham, Bedfordshire by over 6%.

Abbey Corrugated was awarded the Carbon Trust Standard in June 2008. In the last two years the company has honed its energy efficiency strategies even further to cut carbon emissions by over 500 tonnes CO2e.

Adrian Swindells, MD, Abbey Corrugated, said: 
“The Carbon Trust Standard is the de facto UK mark of commitment to carbon reduction. By retaining the Carbon Trust Standard we’ve proved that by continually looking for new ideas and methodologies to reduce energy usage organisations can significantly reduce envirommental impacts, while boosting business profits.”

In total, over the five years Abbey Corrugated’s performance has been measured by the Carbon Trust Standard, the company has reduced carbon emissions by around 2,500 tonnes CO2e. To achieve the Carbon Trust Standard, organisations must firstly measure their direct carbon footprint (for example, onsite fuel and electricity use), prove that good carbon management practices are in place and demonstrate genuine reduction in their emissions over a three year period. The Carbon Trust Standard certificate is valid for two years. The recertification is equally robust and demands an even greater focus on carbon reduction since companies typically have targeted ‘low hanging’ fruit during their first certification.

Harry Morrison, General Manager, the Carbon Trust Manager, said: 
“We are delighted to recertify Abbey Corrugated’s ongoing commitment to carbon reduction. Abbey’s ability to seek out new areas to improve energy efficiency proves that, with the right level of skills, tenacity, and support, it’s possible to improve carbon efficiency year-on-year – which has a hugely positive effect on the business.”

Abbey Corrugated has moved forward with investment in fuel management systems, inverters on larger motors, upgrades to the compressed air system and the installation of a reverse osmosis water treatment system along with continued investment in low energy lighting solutions.
