Digital thermometer manufacturer Electronic Temperature Instruments (ETI) has introduced a company-wide strategy to help it achieve net zero carbon status by 2025.
The UK company, which exports globally, is committed to reducing its carbon footprint and improving its environmental performance.
To achieve net zero status by 2025, ETI has already introduced many changes to its processes to improve energy performance and efficiency. This includes: installing renewable energy on all four ETI sites or switching to renewable energy suppliers, reducing transport use through improved logistics and/or switching to electric vehicles and continued use of online conferencing facilities instead of travelling to meetings.
The firm is also designing products for reuse, repair and recycling, reusing production waste materials where appropriate, developing strategies for more sustainable product packaging and recycling redundant materials that can’t be reused.
Furthermore, ETI is looking to source products and materials from companies with recognised net zero policies and commitments, separate and minimise waste for easier recycling and reuse, and reduce paper records and expand cloud storage.
Moving forwards, the manufacturer will now wish to see its own suppliers reference their approach to meeting this target within their own environmental policies.
Director Jason Webb said: “This is something that we should all be working towards together. Our net zero target of 2025 underlines our commitment to improving environmental performance.
“To curb emissions and limit global warming all organisations will have to reimagine their existing business models and aim for sustainable growth. We are continuing to take a leadership position in this effort – and are encouraging our clients and peers to do the same.”
