Mitsubishi Electric has been re-certified with the Carbon Trust Standard after demonstrating it’s practices for measuring, managing and reducing carbon emissions at its Hatfield headquarters.
Carbon Trust Standard holders are proven to deliver carbon reduction year-on-year. The latest assessment of Mitsubishi Electric’s Hatfield site shows that the company has achieved both a 9.2% absolute reduction in its footprint and an 18.1% relative reduction measured against turnover.
The report states that the company “has achieved a considerable reduction in absolute CO2 during the latest assessment period compared to the best performing organisation in the sector.”
To achieve certification against the Carbon Trust Standard, companies are required to demonstrate good all-round carbon management performance in their day to day operations.
Mitsubishi Electric has occupied its Hatfield site since the late 1980’s and the steel-frame and glass-fronted office block is typical of its era. The company has been looking to improve the building’s energy efficiency, not only to reduce its carbon footprint but to set as a clear example to others.
