Shore renews carbon neutral status
Published: 10 February 2022
Shore is delighted to renew its CarbonNeutral® company certification for 2022, demonstrating our commitment to acting on climate change.
The renewal recognises that Shore has continued to fulfil the requirements of The CarbonNeutral Protocol by reducing emissions from its operations and offsetting the remainder using internationally recognised carbon credits. The certification involves working closely with Natural Capital Partners, a leading expert on carbon neutrality and climate finance, to perform a full third-party assessment of its emissions.
By offsetting its residual carbon footprint, Shore is supporting water filtration and improved cookstoves in Guatemala and a global renewable energy portfolio; projects which bring additional social and community benefits in developing countries as well as reducing greenhouse gases.
Nick Foley, Managing Director: “Shore is playing its part on addressing climate change and taking a range of actions to reduce unnecessary carbon emissions. Our design process encourages the specification of recycled materials and sustainable manufacturing methods, alongside detailed assessment of product lifecycle to reduce the environmental impact of our products. Through daily operations we are reducing waste, offering hybrid working and have a company-wide cycle to work scheme, amongst other activities. Importantly these all support our vision to develop class leading and cost-effective products which improve people’s lives.”
Whilst we explore how we can achieve net zero for our operations, our CarbonNeutral® company certification renewal is one further important step in our journey.
Everyone at Shore is passionate about protecting our environment and you only have to look at Scotland’s stunning natural heritage for encouragement – much of it right on our doorstep.”
