We have taken the next step on our journey to Net Zero. The exciting news is that we have confirmed our Verified Carbon Neutral status. Having worked together with Auditel to reach this milestone, we become the first carbon neutral plastic pallet supplier in the United Kingdom to be verified to BSi PAS2060 standard.
Journey to Carbon Neutral & Net Zero
When we talk about sustainability being at the core of their business, we mean it. We have committed to be Net Zero by 2045. Our head of business services, Shona Laing explains, ‘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 several 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, achieving PAS2060, has allowed us to do that. It’s one thing to talk the talk, another to walk the walk.’
Achieving PAS2060 and becoming Verified Carbon Neutral is the next step for Exporta on our journey to Net Zero, and Auditel have supported us in this journey. 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.’
Speaking about the verified carbon neutral status Exporta’s managing Director Dale Paterson said, ‘This is an important step for Exporta and one we’re delighted to have reached. It’s taken a lot of work from the whole team who have really bought in to our journey to Net Zero by 2045.’
