Reducing Our Carbon Footprint
British Gaskets Limited ("British Gaskets") is a UK based international manufacturer and supplier of gaskets, seals, plastic and rubber mouldings and materials. The single site contract, valued at around £0.4m, covers a solar power system, together with LED lighting.
Over the 20 year lifetime of the system, the Board anticipates a total cost saving, at today's prices, of almost £1.4m and a reduction of CO2 emissions of around 576,000 tonnes.
Andrew Thurlbourn, Managing Director commented "This contract represents a major milestone for the Group as we continue to focus on reducing our carbon footprint. Our offer is being well received by the market and this blueprint for material energy and cost savings, coupled with significant decarbonisation is compelling for customers and the environment.
