Harrogate-based ventilation manufacturer EnviroVent has revealed its ambitious Roadmap to Net-Zero, which sets out the path to achieve net-zero carbon across its business by 2030.
The roadmap outlines the company’s target to achieve emissions savings of 1,000 tonnes of carbon over the next 10 years.
To meet the ambitious target, EnviroVent has put in place a number of sustainability practices to reduce the company’s footprint, including planting 5,000 trees per year to remove approximately 1,500 tonnes of CO2 from the atmosphere.
The company also plans to relocate to a zero carbon purpose-built headquarters in 2022, which will incorporate air source heat pumps, solar panels, a MVHR heat recovery system, optimum building design for insulation, and electric charging points for vehicles.
EnviroVent will accelerate its focus on reducing emissions through its fleet via a combination of upgrading company vehicles and replacing diesel-fuelled cars with hybrid vehicles, and is involved in several projects that will help its social and private housing customers reduce the carbon footprint of their housing stock.
Jane McLean, quality & environmental systems manager at EnviroVent, explains: “Environmental sustainability is very important to us as a business and to many of our public and private sector customers.
“We’re delighted to be revealing our Roadmap to Net-Zero, which gives a very clear route that we will follow to achieve our environmental targets.
“To add to this, all our products are designed to use minimal amount of energy and we recycle parts from systems we replace, wherever possible.
“As a result, customers buying our ventilation systems can be safe in the knowledge they are giving back to the planet.”
Rebecca McLean, marketing and product director at EnviroVent, said: “We are delighted to be involved in the Project 80 programme in providing the whole house MVHR systems to ensure good indoor air quality for residents.
“To be part of such a collaborative project to inform debate and input into this important consultation will be essential as we move forward to understand more about the Future Homes Standard.”
EnviroVent’s ventilation technology will also be incorporated within a zero carbon home concept developed by Barratt Developments.
McLean added: “It is fantastic to be involved with this really innovative project which is shaping the way that the new homes of the future will be built, generating lower carbon and using renewable energy.
“A key element of this is to ensure better indoor air quality and it is exciting to see the part our products will play in this.”
