In an impressive display of its commitment to sustainability, Grant UK significantly reduced its scope 1 and 2 emissions in 2023 by further refining its daily operations.

With a strong focus on providing low carbon heating products, such as the award-winning Aerona³ R32 air source heat pump range, Grant UK is also dedicated to minimising its own carbon footprint. Through its Grant Project Zero sustainability programme, the company continually evaluates and adjusts its practices to lessen environmental impact.

Working with an external carbon consultant

Since 2021, Grant UK has been a member of the United Nations Climate Neutral Now programme. Collaborating with an external carbon consultant, the company annually assesses its carbon emissions and implements measures to reduce them. This comprehensive carbon analysis includes scope 1 and 2 emissions, covering direct and indirect emissions like electricity, waste, and fuel usage, and scope 3 emissions through the supply chain.

Throughout 2023, Grant UK made significant strides in its carbon reduction roadmap by transitioning more of its vehicle fleet to electric or hybrid models, increasing the use of recyclable packaging, and working closely with suppliers to minimise waste.

These initiatives, along with earlier efforts such as installing a 303kWp Solar PV system with battery storage, culminated in a remarkable 35% reduction in scope 1 and 2 carbon emissions (210 tonnes CO2e in 2023, compared to 323 tonnes CO2e in 2022). Grant’s ongoing support for overseas carbon saving projects also contributed to achieving carbon neutral status once again in 2023.

Making important changes to business operations

“We are incredibly pleased that Grant UK has maintained its carbon neutrality status for another year,” comments Anna Wakefield, head of internal sales and marketing at Grant UK.  

“We have also significantly reduced our scope 1 and 2 emissions in 2023 which is something we are proud of as a business. A huge thank you and well done to our team members for their ongoing support with the company’s carbon reduction programme. We are in a sector which is working hard to reduce emissions and we strongly believe that this will be achieved not only through the supply of low carbon heating technologies but also by making important changes to business operations.”
