Freefoam Building Products are pleased to announce a significant milestone in their journey towards a low carbon, circular operation. This is with the news that all electricity used at its Northampton-based UK manufacturing site now comes from sustainable supplies.
Reducing emissions is critical. All businesses can source energy from a range of options including nuclear, wind and solar. With climate change high on the agenda, companies are looking at ways to operate more sustainably, and energy consumption has a big part to play in this.
As an energy intensive business, Freefoam has made a strategic choice to only purchase electricity from renewable resources.
Geoff Barnett, UK General Manager, explains: “As a manufacturing plant, energy is one of our biggest commodities, used to power our mixing and production operations, some of which operate 24/7.
“Knowing that we are sourcing all our energy requirements from solar power is a significant step towards reducing carbon emissions. Freefoam are serious about sustainability and playing our part in managing precious resources. As General Manager in the UK, I am very proud to be announcing this initiative.
“This development is part of a much wider strategic plan to ensure that Freefoam becomes part of the circular economy, with numerous projects currently happening around the business.
“We’re on a journey and have already taken some significant steps with many more to follow. Our aim is to put reduce, re-use and recycle at the heart of everything we do.”
