“Once we fully understood what our carbon impact was, we were better placed to do something about it,” said Spiroflow’s development engineer, Craig Hollings. “The first step was a grass roots approach to make small changes; this included changing plastic cups in the canteen to water bottles for a more sustainable use, changing lighting over to LED, monitoring heating and increasing the recycling of cardboard waste. The tree planting event has been a great way to achieve our goal of becoming carbon neutral and we are delighted to have secured agreements with landowners for future tree planting initiatives to last in excess of 50 years.”
Spiroflow are committed to making changes in a wide range of areas including recycling, reducing energy usage and improving energy efficiencies in other companies. Craig’s function within the company is to undergo research and development of our products and in 2019 he helped develop SAM, our remote monitoring system (Spiroflow Active Monitoring). The system will provide customers with full visibility of the energy consumption of their equipment, and so they are able to make essential changes to their processes to reduce their carbon impact.
With Craig Hollings taking Spiroflow’s core value of Accountability forward for the next year, the company is confident in its commitment to retaining the Carbon Neutral status, reducing energy use and promoting green initiatives to its customers and within the powder and bulk materials handling industry.
