Endurance Set A Carbon Neutral Standard

by | Aug 3, 2022 | Trade News

As part of a far reaching and wider environmental and sustainability programme, Endurance Doors have become carbon neutral by partnering up with the World Land Trust and by offsetting through a carbon balanced portfolio. This has been achieved through careful analysis of emissions, products, processes and practices, with the first investment made to the independent charitable body for the calendar year of 2021.

The World Land Trust (WLT) is an international conservation charity that protects the world’s most biologically significant and threatened habitats. Patrons include Sir David Attenborough, Steve Backshall, Chris Packham and Bill Oddie and its vision is to protect the world’s most threatened habitats and species for the future.

A powerful statement from the WLT spells out clearly what we face as individuals and as organisations across the globe. They said: ‘If we are to avoid catastrophic climate change and the biodiversity loss that goes with it, scientists tell us we only have until 2030 to cut global emissions in half. A make-or-break decade lies ahead, and we need to act now. The effects of the climate crisis are evident for all to see, but by working with WLT through our Carbon Balanced programme, you can be part of the solution.’

The WLT was identified as an environmental partner thanks to this immersive Carbon Balanced programme as Stephen Nadin, managing director of Endurance Doors points out. He said: ‘The WLT was an obvious choice for us as a business, as it’s an internationally recognised body that’s committed to conservation and climate change. We too share these values, and this is the first stage in our environmental and sustainability programme that will not only shape the way in which we work, but will involve customers, supply chain partners and stakeholders too.

He continued: ‘The fenestration and construction sectors have a huge impact in terms of CO2 emissions and the time to act is now. The UK Green Building Council has already reported that the UK Built Environment is currently responsible for 25% of total UK greenhouse gas emissions, excluding surface transport, and so we’re encouraging others in the industry to join us in a better future together.’
