Aggreko awarded for carbon footprint progress in the UK

By Sarah Ann McCay30 May 2013

Aggreko's UK operation has become the first power rental company in the world to have its carbon footprint reduction measures certified as ‘world class’ through the ISO accredited CEMARS standard.

CEMARS certification demonstrates Aggreko’s efforts in actively measuring its operational carbon footprint and taking steps to reduce this. The company implemented measures to limit electricity consumption at its UK sites and offices, implemented a green travel policy and has started to operate a vehicle fleet with lower fuel consumption.

In addition, the UK's Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents (RoSPA) has presented the power renter with a Gold award at the RoSPA Health and Safety Awards 2013.

“Being recognised and awarded by two key industry bodies for our initiatives to reduce our carbon footprint and our on-going commitment to health and safety is a strong endorsement of our efforts to strive for world class QHSE standards,” said Martin Williams, head of QHSE, Aggreko Northern Europe.

“Not only are these awards testament to the efforts of our QHSE teams and all our employees, they also give our customers the peace of mind that when working with Aggreko, they are working with an industry leader in terms of health and safety standards and environmental responsibility.”
