Ringway | Huge step towards zero carbon emissions taken by Ringway in Hertfordshire
Ringway in Hertfordshire has moved to a fully renewable energy provider, Bryt Energy, in a determined step towards securing a reduction in their carbon footprint. This change, which came into effect in August 2019, will reduce its depot carbon emissions to zero.
Ringway Hertfordshire is focused on becoming a more sustainable business by minimising its environmental impact. This change of supplier is part of a wider approach to reducing our impact on the environment that lies at the heart of Ringway’s development.
The strategy includes monitoring the carbon footprint on all projects to allow them to focus on ‘high-usage’ areas. The use of plant and vehicles is one of its biggest targets, and measures are being taken to invest in more energy efficient vehicles. Ringway is also running courses for employees on smart energy usage.
Ringway Hertfordshire has chosen Bryt Energy as it specialises in wind, hydro and solar energy sources that provide safe, secure and sustainable energy, and have been helping UK businesses to become more environmentally friendly for for the past three years.
Although Bryt Energy is relatively new to the UK market, it has already made a substantial impact. In June 2019, it announced a joint venture with UK based companies, EOS Storage and Connected Energies, to develop the world’s first zinc hybrid battery, which it plans to roll out to the UK industrial and commercial market next year.
Kevin Carrol, Divisional Manager at Ringway, said:
“Climate change is an increasingly present aspect of our day-to-day lives and we all need to be aware of the impact our carbon footprint is having.
“At Ringway we are always looking for ways to make our business more sustainable and switching to Bryt Energy is just one of a number of things that we are working on to reduce our carbon footprint.”
