ACO awarded Carbon Trust Certification

ACO awarded Carbon Trust Certification

ACO Technologies has been awarded ‘The Carbon Trust Certification’, a mark of excellence in recognition of measuring, managing and reducing carbon emissions on a company-wide scale.

ACO’s achievement has also shown that the company has complied with the forthcoming need to meet the EU’s Energy Efficiency Directive (2012/27/EU) well in advance of having to do so.

To achieve the certification, ACO measured its carbon footprint over a three-year period and through implementing a series of measures was able to demonstrate an absolute reduction in carbon emissions.

The savings were made through a range of initiatives. This included the use of ‘Vienite’; a polymer resin and gravel composite material that is made with a minimum of 20% recycled content and has the added benefit of an end of life recyclability as a road sub-base. This ground breaking new material is now being used in the manufacture the of all ACO polymer concrete based products.

The production process of a number of ACO’s core product ranges, including Qmax, was also reviewed. One new addition in the process is the improved systems for efficiency in material use within the plastic product process; this includes recycling and reuse.

Looking at every facet of their logistics, ACO have been able to demonstrate how even the simplest things can make a big difference.
