Grant UK maintains carbon neutrality status

Grant UK has maintained carbon neutral status in line with PAS 2060 for the third year running and continues to be a participant in the United Nations Climate Neutral Now programme. In 2023, Grant UK reduced its scope 1 and 2 emissions by further adapting its day-to-day business operations, demonstrating the Company’s ongoing commitment to operate as sustainably as possible.

Alongside their supply of low carbon heating products, including the award-winning Aerona³ R32 air source heat pump range, Grant UK has focused on reducing their carbon emissions as a business. With their Grant Project Zero sustainability programme, the Company regularly reviews its operations and makes changes wherever possible to reduce environmental impact.

Since 2021 Grant UK has been part of the United Nations Climate Neutral Now programme. Working with an external carbon consultant, the Company calculates their carbon emissions annually and aims to reduce these as much as possible by introducing carbon saving measures. This carbon analysis covers Scopes 1 and 2 which include direct and indirect emissions including electricity, waste and fuel usage, and Scope 3 emissions which are indirect emissions through the supply chain.

Throughout 2023, Grant UK continued to implement its roadmap to reduce carbon emissions by making changes to its business operations. This included transferring more vehicles in its company fleet to electric or hybrid models, increasing the use of recyclable packaging and working closely with suppliers to minimise waste wherever possible. A combination of these activities alongside the changes Grant UK already made in previous years such as installing a 303kWp Solar PV system with battery storage resulted in the Company reducing their Scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions by a fantastic 35% (210 tonnes CO2e in 2023, compared to 323 tonnes CO2e in 2022) and alongside Grant’s continued support with overseas carbon saving projects, the Company achieved carbon neutral status in 2023.

“We are incredibly pleased that Grant UK has maintained its carbon neutrality status for another year,” comments Anna Wakefield, Head of Internal Sales and Marketing at Grant UK. “Not only this, we also significantly reduced our scope 1 and 2 emissions in 2023 which is something we are proud of as a business. A huge thank you and well done to our team members for their ongoing support with the Company’s carbon reduction programme. We are in a sector which is working hard to reduce emissions and we strongly believe that this will be achieved not only through the supply of low carbon heating technologies but also by making important changes to business operations.”
