Hire firms Procam and Take 2 have achieved CarbonNeutral® company certification.
To achieve CarbonNeutral status, Procam and Take 2 are working with Natural Capital Partners.
Procam and Take 2 have achieved net zero greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, the global standard for carbon neutral programmes.
This involved an independent assessment of the CO2 emissions produced from gas, company vehicles, electricity, electricity losses, water supply, water treatment, business travel, business hotels, waste, staff commuting and 3rd party deliverables, coupled with an offset-inclusive emissions reduction program.
To offset its carbon footprint, Procam and Take 2 are supporting the West India Wind Power project which is located across three districts in India – Jaisalmer, Rajkot and Surendranagar.
“As a forward-thinking company, we see it as our responsibility to neutralise our impact on the environment by taking the necessary steps to offset our carbon footprint and achieve CarbonNeutral status,” said John Brennan, Group CEO, of Procam Group. “We are proud to be the first hire facilities to take the lead in being part of the solution and will continue to work with experts to determine and further implement best practices on a much larger scale. I sincerely hope others in the industry will join us by making the same commitment.”
Procam and Take 2 are also members of BAFTA’s sustainability initiative, albert. Through this partnership, both companies have reduced their carbon footprint through the purchase of Renewable Energy Guarantees of Origin from the UK through Good Energy, which guarantee that 100% renewable electricity has been sourced.
Procam’s new London HQ was built with impressive eco credentials. With an EPC Rating of A, Very Good BREEAM rating, and LED lighting throughout the building, it exceeds the standards of environment sustainability required by building regulations.
Operational practices at Procam and Take 2 include driver eco-awareness training and regular servicing of vehicles to help keep emissions and fuel use as low as possible.
