Published:  03 November, 2016

Saint-Gobain PAM UK has been presented with the Gold Certificate from the Carbon & Energy Management and Reduction Scheme (CEMARS) by Sir Lockwood Smith at a presentation ceremony in London on 27 October.

The Gold Certificate recognises the company’s achievement for year on year reductions over a five-year period by following a systematic carbon reduction programme.

The company cut its carbon emissions by 13.31% in absolute emissions over five years, which equates to 4,107 tonnes.

In particular the company has reviewed and taken targeted action at its foundries, where it believes it can make maximum impact. Other actions being taken by Saint-Gobain PAM UK include a replacement programme of all of its internal and external lighting to more efficient LED fittings.

The results were reported and independently verified by Achilles, which holds the licence to run CEMARS in the UK.

Paul Minchin, managing director of Saint-Gobain PAM UK, said: “We are hugely proud to be one of the few UK businesses to achieve the gold certification for CEMARS. The award is testament to the amount of work and commitment invested by various teams across our business over the last six years.”
