Fernox has further demonstrated its green credentials by extending its range of products qualified to carry the Carbon Trust’s Carbon Reduction Label. The extension of the accreditation from five to 23 products reinforces the company’s ongoing commitment to carbon reduction and sustainability. Fernox products have held the Carbon Footprint accreditation since 2011 and was the first manufacturer to be awarded the label for water treatment products specially developed for Renewable technologies.
The Carbon Reduction Label is granted to products that have had their carbon footprints measured, certified and where a company, such as Fernox, commits to reducing the carbon footprint of that product on an ongoing basis. Furthermore, the carbon footprint of the product is re-assessed every two years and must be able to prove a continuous programme of reduction in order to keep using the Label – which Fernox has been able to demonstrate with 23 products from its chemical water treatment range.
As such, a breadth of products from Protector F1, Cleaner F3, Solar and Heat Pump Heat Transfer Fluids as well as the award-winning TF1 filter range are now footprinted. Many of the products selected utlise different methods of application from aerosols to liquids and gels as well as equipment which varies in scale and size to suit different installations will now carry the Carbon Reduction Label.
In order to carry the Carbon Trust Carbon Reduction Label across its range, Fernox had each individual product's carbon footprint certified to PAS 2050: a specification for the assessment of the life cycle greenhouse gas emissions of goods and services.
Francine Wickham, Global Marketing Director at Fernox commented: “We are delighted to now be carrying the Carbon Trust’s Carbon Reduction Label across 23 of our products. As a company we are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, which is why we continue to carry out extensive research and development that will better our product offering and contribute towards a greener society. In addition, it means contractors can demonstrate to their own customers - that they are using products that are actively looking to reduce carbon emissions. ”
