Benson Signs are proud to announce that they are the first signage manufacturer in the UK to be awarded The Carbon Trust Standard. This prestigious award is in recognition of taking action on climate change issues, by measuring, managing and reducing carbon emissions by 4.7%.
The Carbon Trust Standard recognises organisations for achieving real carbon reduction. Based on a rigorous, independent assessment, it certifies that organisations have measured, managed and reduced their carbon emissions across their own operations and are committed to reducing them year on year.
Graham Barker, Environmental Coordinator at Benson Signs, said:
“We’re delighted to have achieved the Carbon Trust Standard. It is a great way of showing our commitment when it comes to carbon management best practices, and gives us an opportunity to communicate our environmental commitment to our staff, customers, suppliers and competitors.
Cutting carbon is a priority for us as a business, as it not only increases our performance and efficiency, but delivers real reductions to our bottom line. We have already achieved a 4.7% carbon reduction, and are committed to making further reductions. We already have a series of projects planned that we hope will increase this improvement considerably. Going through the assessment process to achieve the Carbon Trust Standard helped us generate cost savings across our processes and in many of our operations. In a climate of economic uncertainty, it’s essential that we remain competitive, and the Carbon Trust Standard is another way we can stay ahead of the game.”
