Baxi’s 2021 carbon emissions reveals 35% reduction

179

Baxi has announced that its 2021 carbon emissions were 35% lower than they were two years, according to the company’s sustainability report due to be published next week

The biggest reason for the company’s 2021 carbon reductions was due to the decision to buy electricity only from renewable sources.

Baxi is targeting an annual 5% reduction in greenhouse gas emissions from its own operations from 2019 to 2030.

This is in addition to a 30% reduction in emissions in the supply chain producing the materials and components that go into its appliances, as well as the emissions produced ‘downstream’ by its products by 2030.

Alongside this, Baxi has recently changed its company car policy to electric and hybrid only, as well as trialling the use of electric vans for use by its field engineers.

‘Driving the energy transition with the aim of providing low carbon heating’

Ian Robinson, Baxi HS&E and quality director, commented: “We’re working towards a sustainable future and the last year represents an important step forward in reducing the emissions from our own business.

Even more importantly, we’re driving the energy transition with the aim of providing low carbon heating and hot water to customers across the UK & Ireland.”

While there is still work to do, the 2021 carbon emissions figures represent an important step in achieving environmental goals.

Having recycled nearly 99% of its waste in 2021, Baxi is targeting a 50% reduction in overall waste by 2025.

The company is also aiming to ensure all of its packaging is recyclable, commencing with a pilot to replace difficult to recycle polystyrene packaging, with an alternative made from waste cardboard.
