B&M Waste Services awarded Carbon Neutrality for 7th year running

Categories: In The Community

neil curtis
B&M Waste Services, a leading and innovative waste management business, has achieved carbon neutrality for another year.  Their innovative processes and drive for a better environment within their business and with the services they provide to their customers has led to them maintaining carbon neutral status to the exacting standards of PAS 2060.


B&M Waste Services prides itself on a strong set of values including high customer service, environmental protection and corporate and social responsibility. For this reason, the business has actively been measuring, managing and reducing the carbon impact of both its business and for the service it provides to its clients.

Over the years, B&M Waste Services have innovated and implemented a wide range of technologies and processes across the business to reduce carbon emissions.

Neil Curtis, Managing Director of B&M Waste Services said,
“Environmental performance of waste management suppliers is a key concern to many customers. As well as our desire to reduce impact of our services, we are committed to providing a lower carbon solution to our clients.”

The Company has an active and highly comprehensive Carbon Management Plan in place, setting annual targets that are actively managed to reduce emissions.

B&M Waste Services were one of the first companies to achieve PAS2060 carbon neutrality. This involves completion of an annual carbon emissions assessment (following the Greenhouse Gas Protocol and ISO14064-1), commitment to a Carbon Management Plan and offsetting unavoidable emissions via carbon offsets of recognized international standards.

This year they are supporting a Gold Standard Verified Emissions Reductions iLandfill Gas reclaim project in Turkey. The project recovers landfill site gases, mostly made up of methane and carbon dioxide, that otherwise would be released into the atmosphere. The project also provides much needed employment opportunity.

Additionally, B&M  Waste Services continue to plant trees across the UK at both customers sites and local schools to further offset the carbon impact.

Over past years, the business has also supported a range of landfill gas & renewable energy projects in Indonesia, Brazil, China and India – supporting projects and communities across the Globe.

Over recent years, the UK has seen introduction of legislation to reduce energy and carbon emissions, including the Carbon Reduction Commitment, Mandatory GHG Reporting and Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS) for larger businesses and requirement for carbon footprint disclosure within supply chains is only getting stronger.Carbon Neutral 2017 06 CFP Certificate PAS 2060 BM (002)

Dr Wendy Buckley, Director at Carbon Footprint Ltd who independently audit and assist B&M Waste Services with their carbon programme commented “B&M Waste Services continues to be at the forefront of carbon management, being one of the very first companies in their sector to achieve and retain their carbon neutrality. They continue to innovate their services, for enhanced environmental performance and reduced carbon footprint for their clients ”

Beyond these current achievements, B&M plans to roll out further carbon reduction measures, including more electric and hybrid vehicles in their fleet, and office based measures to reduce energy consumption.


Neil Curtis concluded “B&M will continue to push forward. Although we are currently not required by legislation to measure, manage or offset our carbon emissions it is in the DNA of our business to do so.”

*Emission intensity is measured as a ratio of carbon emission / turnover.
