Soyang Europe, the leading manufacturer and distributor of digitally printable wide-format and superwide-format media and surface coverings, is delighted to announce that it has secured Carbon Neutral status.

CarbonQuota, an independent and science-based carbon measurement for manufacturers, awarded the certification after assessing Soyang Europe’s greenhouse gas emissions for the period between 1 January and 31 December 2021.

During the 12-month period, Soyang Europe observed 204 tonnes of carbon dioxide emissions from its Calder House facility on the Altham Industrial Estate in Accrington. In order to achieve Carbon Neutral status, a company must commit to emissions reductions and then cancel out carbon emitted by an activity by reducing or removing an equal amount of carbon through verified schemes.

CarbonQuota advised that Soyang Europe’s efforts to reduce carbon and meet the strict criteria set out in the PAS2060 standard for Carbon Neutral meant it was able to award the company with the highly sought-after Carbon Neutral status.

“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,” says Mark Mashiter, Managing Director of Soyang Europe.

“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 omit from our manufacturing operations is offset.

“In addition, all our company cars and forklift trucks are electric, our warehouse lighting is LED and we also use solar energy. However, the hard work does not stop here, and we will continue to explore new ways to make the business even more sustainable moving forward.”
