This month Carbon Neutral B&M Waste Services has planted trees at customer Husco International’s Runcorn site to off-set the carbon impact of their waste management. Ten Common Alder’s and fifteen Downy Birch’s were planted by Dave Curtis, Director at B&M Waste Services, along with Adam Baines, Environmental Health and Safety Manager at Husco International. Since working with B&M Waste Services, Husco International has achieved a 99.01% diversion of waste from landfill through the recycling initiatives implemented in partnership with B&M.
B&M Waste have been Carbon Neutral for six years, and they continue to work with environmental consultants, Carbon Footprint Ltd to further reduce their carbon impact. They have reduced the carbon emission intensity (in terms of tonnes CO2 per person) by more than 27% in total, and are continuously reducing this number year-on-year.
B&M’s comprehensive Carbon Management reduces impact through the use of green fleet with Euro 6 engines, plug-in hybrid cars and a zero waste to landfill policy. The company is currently involved in supporting landfill gas reclamation projects in developing countries such as Turkey, as well as planting trees across the UK.
Dave Curtis, Director of B&M Waste Services said “We love customers that are as passionate as us when it comes to improving their environmental impact. For every tree we plant in the UK, a tree is protected in the Amazon, which is a great achievement for us at B&M Waste Service. We praise Husco for their commitment to sustainability and reducing carbon impact through effective waste management”
Adam Baines, Environmental Health and Safety Manager ‘‘I think it’s great how we have been given the opportunity to make such a positive impact on the environment. B&M Waste have really assisted us improve our environmental performance through our waste management, and further assistance in terms of planting trees at our site are greatly received. We chose Downy Birch trees, which will naturally assist in fixing the over dampness by our pond, which the local animals will also benefit from.’’
