FCC Environment has achieved the Carbon Trust Standard for the third time as the company continues to deliver carbon reductions year-on-year.
The recycling and waste management business has been awarded the accolade for the third time following a rigorous, independent assessment into its carbon management. A 15.2% reduction in FCC Environment's carbon emissions was recorded over the last two years.
Paul Taylor, Chief Executive of FCC Environment, said: "We have demonstrated once again our commitment to consistently reducing our carbon emissions and will continue to improve our carbon management practices."
"Achieving the Carbon Trust Standard is important to us as we strive to lead by example when it comes to managing resources sustainably for our customers and the communities in which we operate."
Paul Stokes, FCC Environment's Head of Safety, Health, Environment and Quality, added: "Not only is cutting carbon good for the environment, it's good for business as it delivers significant cost savings across our operations. Therefore, reducing our carbon emissions has continued to be a key priority for our business since the last Carbon Trust assessment two years ago."
The Carbon Trust requires FCC Environment to demonstrate that the company continues to make year-on-year reductions in its carbon emissions and to re-certify every two years.
Darran Messem, Managing Director of certification at the Carbon Trust, commented: "The Carbon Trust is delighted to see FCC Environment making continued improvements in the reduction of its organisational carbon footprint. Reducing an organisation’s carbon footprint can deliver major dividends in terms of cost efficiency and reputational benefits."
