The new carbon reporting tool currently being trialled by insulation, drywall and ceiling product distributors CCF is one of the key initiatives that has helped parent company Travis Perkins plc secure a prestigious award win.
The Group has been presented with the 2023 Google Cloud Customer of the Year Award, Cross Industry in recognition of its commitment to net zero and its data-driven approach to improving fleet efficiency and reducing carbon emissions for deliveries to customers.
CCF’s comprehensive carbon reporting tool provides information on the carbon emissions relating to the delivery of products to site for CCF customers. The tool is currently in its trial phase, and CCF is looking forward to expanding its capabilities to also include the embodied carbon of the products, which will enhance insight and transparency for tangible carbon savings.
Stefano Quatrini, Regional Sales Director at CCF, says: “Such a respected award recognises the commitment we all have to achieving net zero.
“We’re proud to be part of a Group that is paving the way for improved services to our customers and the rest of the industry when it comes to sustainability, and we’re thrilled that CCF’s new carbon reporting tool has helped achieve this recognition.
“We have developed our new carbon reporting tool to specifically meet the needs of our customers and this insight has only been possible by working closely with a sample group to test the technology on real-life projects.
“With the first trial now underway, the potential benefits and advantages of being able to track carbon emissions through the distribution phase of a project are clear and we are excited to progress to the next stage.”
Mansell Building Solutions, one of CCF’s customers participating in the trial, adds: “Our aim in everything we do is to challenge the norms to drive the future in specialist construction, and aligning ourselves with innovative supply partners like CCF is a key part of this process.
“Seeing the investment that CCF is making into getting this tool right and making sure it will work in the way we as customers need it to is impressive.
“It’s been great to be involved and have the opportunity to put our opinions forward as part of this process to ensure the finished tool will not only be useful to other customers, but will go above and beyond other available tools and programmes.”
CCF has also collaborated with several other customers on the first-phase development of its carbon reporting tool, including Errigal, Linear Projects, CCG and Platt & Reilly.
