Ideal Heating reduces carbon to increase business

Ideal Heating, Carbon Trust standard
Demonstrating an ongoing commitment to reducing carbon emissions is expected to help Ideal Heating win new business.

Achieving the Carbon Trust Standard is expected to help heating company Ideal Standard win around 250 000 of new business contracts over the next 12 months. The company is based in Hull and reached this standard after the Manufacturing Advisory Services (MAS) helped identify and quantify savings of 1500 t of CO2 achieved in the last three years and measure annual energy-cost savings of 65 000.

The company approached MAS for guidance to secure the Carbon Trust Standard so as to win more contracts with leading construction firms, after it introduced an Atlas Copco ES130 compressor-management system and destratification fans, as well as switching from compressed air to electrically powered hand tools.

Following an initial manufacturing review, a 10-day project was undertaken to develop a carbon-management programme. MAS helped Ideal Heating identify further possible initiatives such as zone metering, automatic lighting sensors in its main assembly line and a waste-water management system all of which will help the company meet its ongoing commitment to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 2% a year.

As a result of the MAS involvement, Ideal Heating can refer to its Carbon Trust Standard when bidding for new contracts.
