Re-certification is reward for ongoing emissions reduction

Mitsubishi Electric has been re-certified with the prestigious Carbon Trust Standard after being able to demonstrate how it has been measuring, managing and reducing carbon emissions at its Hatfield headquarters.

 

Carbon Trust standard bearers continue to deliver carbon reductions year on year and the latest assessment of the company’s Hatfield site shows that Mitsubishi Electric has achieved both a 9.2 per cent absolute reduction in its footprint and an 18.1 per cent relative reduction measured against turnover.

 

The report states that Mitsubishi Electric: “has achieved a considerable reduction in absolute CO2 during the latest assessment period compared to the best performing organisation in the sector”.

 

Successful certification against the Carbon Trust Standard requires organisations to demonstrate good all-round carbon management performance in their day to day operations.

 

Mitsubishi Electric has occupied the Hatfield building since the late 1980’s and the steel-framed, glass-fronted, three-story office block is typical of the era. The company has been looking for ways to improve its energy efficiency, not only to reduce energy consumption and its carbon footprint, but also to use it as a clear example to others.

Whitepaper tackles legionella risk

Low occupancy rates in commercial buildings could be leading to a ticking time bomb of water quality issues according to Guardian Water Treatment.

To help building owners take the right steps to prevent these issues, in particular legionella, the company has launched a new whitepaper – Locked down but not forgotten.

In the whitepaper, Guardian draws on its own data from over 30,000 samples taken from commercial buildings, predominantly in London, over a six-month period starting from April 2020 (when the first lockdown began).
