Carbon Footprint

We believe that the climate change impact facing our planet from rising carbon emissions requires a specific commitment. This policy outlines our approach to reducing the significant carbon impacts of our business operations, namely energy use and fleet fuel consumption.

Grange Doors is a leading door manufacturing business with environmental responsibility as a core business principle. Since 2006 we have demonstrated our commitment to environmental management by obtaining certification to BS EN ISO 14001:2004 for our Environmental Management System.  In 2015 we successfully obtained re-certification through strong maintenance and continual improvement.

Our Carbon Boundaries

In accordance with generally accepted principles for boundary setting for organisations, our carbon management policy is based upon the significant emission sources for which we have operational control:

  • Direct Energy Consumption at our office & factory
  • Company leased Vehicles used for installation and servicing
  • Indirect Energy Consumption including business travel, waste and water treatment

 

Our Approach to Carbon Management is based on the following principles

  • Deliver real carbon reductions instead of carbon neutrality through offsetting
  • Apply the carbon management hierarchy to our key business decisions 
  • Utilise our EMS to deliver carbon reduction objectives and to review progress
  • Engage and motivate our staff to deliver our carbon management programme 
  • Transparent reporting of our performance. 

 

Carbon Management Hierarchy

Carbon Management hierarchy initially focuses on avoidance followed by more efficient processes before considering the need to invest in new technology or renewable energy. The residual carbon balance of currently unavoidable emissions will be considered for offsetting (compensate) through a Voluntary Gold Standard scheme. 

Our Key Carbon Reduction Objectives for 2016/17

After several years of continued advancement and taking into account 2015/16 baselines since we moved into our new premises in April 2015 we aim to achieve performance as follows:

  • To achieve gas of consumption per hours worked of 1.37 kWh to March 2017
  • To achieve electricity consumption per hours worked of 0.46 kWh to March 2017
  • To maintain water 2015/16 consumption levels
  • To achieve fleet average mpl of 6.3mpl by March 2017
  • To achieve a company’s carbon intensity ratio of 40 kgCO2e/000
