B&M Waste retains carbon neutral status

B&M Waste Services has continued and extended the scope of its sustainability programme. At the very heart of this was its carbon neutrality, first established in 2011, and B&M Waste Services was one of the first waste management businesses to successfully achieve carbon neutrality to the exacting standards.

The company has now achieved carbon neutrality for the eighth year running. This year, the confidential waste arm of the business, B&M Secure Shredding, has also become carbon neutral.

Achieving carbon neutrality to the BSI’s Publicly Available Specification (PAS) 2060 since 2011, B&M Waste Services has offset over 25,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide by supporting Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) certified clean energy projects around the world - including land-fill gas reclaim projects.

Mick Ashall, director of B&M Waste, said: “We’re so proud to achieve carbon neutrality for yet another year. It’s more than a status to us - reducing our carbon footprint is one of our core business principles and at the heart of what we do. This year, we’ve committed to supporting carbon offsetting projects including tree planting in the UK, protection of trees in the Brazilian Amazon rainforest and Turkey landfill gas recovery. We continue to support our customers in their waste minimisation projects through our Simple Swaps audit, and look to continue to maintain excellence in sustainable waste management solutions across the UK.”
