Soyang Europe, a manufacturer and distributor of printable wide-format and superwide-format media and surface coverings, has been certified Carbon Neutral by CarbonQuota.
Certification was awarded following an assessment of greenhouse gas emissions from Soyang Europe’s Calder House facility on the Altham Industrial Estate in Accrington (204 tonnes from January 1 to December 31 2021) and its commitment to emission reductions and carbon offsets through verified schemes.
Mark Mashiter, Managing Director of Soyang Europe, said: “Given our long-
term commitment to the environment and providing increasingly eco-conscious products and solutions to our customers, achieving Carbon Neutral status was the next natural step for us as a business. We have worked extremely hard to implement a number of innovative schemes including minimising our container loading into 40ft containers to reduce carbon by maximising space, investing in two low emission trucks from Mercedes, and ensuring any carbon we emit from our manufacturing operations is offset. In addition, all our company cars and forklift trucks are electric, our warehouse lighting is LED and we use solar energy.”
