Foster Refrigerator has become the first refrigeration manufacturer to be awarded the Carbon Trust Standard.
The company was measured and independently assessed on data spanning a three year period to demonstrate year on year reduction in emissions across the company’s UK operations, culminating in 2009 when a reduction in carbon emissions of over 10 per cent was achieved.
Three criteria had to be met to achieve the standard:
· Accurate carbon footprint measurement
· Year on year reduction in carbon emissions
· Demonstration of good carbon management
Harry Morrision, Carbon Trust Standard general manager, said: “Being certified with the Carbon Trust Standard is proof that an organisation has taken genuine action to reduce its impact on climate change. We congratulate Foster Refrigerator on this achievement.”
