Bedrock Tiles is the first UK tiling company to be certified as a Carbon Neutral Business

November 2021

Bedrock Tiles has become the first company in the UK tiling industry to be certified as Carbon Neutral. Fittingly, this milestone was reached during the week of COP26 in Glasgow.

The process for becoming certified is quite intense.  It took Bedrock Tiles three months to collate and present all the data to the auditing company for scopes 1, 2, and 3.  It then took a further 3 weeks for that data to be analysed and reported back to the company.

“It has been calculated that Bedrock Tiles omit 52 tonnes of Carbon whilst conducting our operational tile supplying activities over the course of a year,” notes Bedrock’s Pete Brown.  “There are a few methods to opt into in respect to making the offsetting choices.  These could be to request your contribution payment is invested in large scale hydro, turbine, forestation, or solar projects.  Bedrock chose to send their contribution to hydro and forestation projects.”

The certification is an annual requirement and Bedrock have now incorporated it into the operational procedures, while also factoring the costs into the annual budget.

“We cannot wait to continue the good work that we’ve started next year and into the future”, says Brown.  “Bedrock would like to extend an invitation to fellow businesses to get in touch with us to discuss, how and what we did to get there and encourage as many other, forward-thinking businesses to do the same.
