Exporta’s vision is to be the best company to work for, buy from and sell to. Through working with Auditel they have been able to identify, demonstrate and strategically execute on their commitment to Sustainability and Net Zero which really does meet with their vision.
Shona Laing Head of Business Services for Exporta says, “We are an environmentally conscious and sustainable thinking company, committed to promoting sustainability across our own operations and helping our customers achieve the same.We have held ISO14001 certification for a number of years which has allowed us to demonstrate our commitment and compliance. However, we felt that it didn’t take us far enough as we always strive to be a leader in the market. We can see the need in proving that we are an environmentally ethical company and working with Auditel to determine our current Carbon Footprint and put in place a Strategic Carbon Reduction Plan, eventually achieving PAS2060, will allow us to do that. It’s one thing to talk the talk, another to walk the walk.”
Shona continues, “Working with Auditel has been brilliant. Our customers can be sure they’re working with a supplier committed to sustainability. It’s easy to make the right noises about being green and sustainable but it takes work to actually take action and really make a difference. For our customers looking to work on their own emissions, they know that Exporta is the sustainable choice when it comes to plastic pallets and other product handling goods.
Auditels’ Carbon Specialist Sean Connaughton says, “Exporta really are ahead of the curve. The culture within the whole organisation is totally focused on a drive to achieving carbon neutrality. Working with them has been a joy, everyone we have worked with has been very receptive, helping us gather the detailed carbon data to accurately calculate their scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions. Working across all departments everyone has been willing to share, learn and work with me to make it a smooth journey for both parties.”
Sean continues, “We have spoken to suppliers in Latvia, Turkey, Israel and the UK to try and understand what they are doing about carbon. Some have been able to provide this, and others haven’t even started their carbon journey. Accurately capturing the data is always very challenging, however we have been working effectively with the warehousing department to start creating new templates for them, so they are more efficient and making the harvesting of carbon data seamless within their processes. This will make annual carbon footprinting so much easier.
Exporta have already taken several steps to reduce their footprint and increase sustainability like installing solar panels on the roof and the separation of waste. Now we have a detailed picture of their Carbon Footprint totalling 433 tCO2e, the next phase will be to identify the hotspots and by developing Strategic Carbon Reduction Plans together, we can put in place many more initiatives over the coming months and years to make significant reductions in their carbon emissions.”
