Parkside becomes carbon balanced

Tile specification company, Parkside, has reportedly become a carbon balanced business.
The company has worked with World Land Trust (WLT) to identify the carbon emissions of its operations and offset against a range of biodiverse conservation projects to become a carbon balanced business.

During an analysis phase, WLT investigated the emissions caused by Parkside’s daily operations, including energy use at its offices and design studios, the emissions of company fleet vehicles, the delivery of products, sampling and more.The company’s total carbon greenhouse gas emissions were measured at 405 tonnes for its 2020/21 financial year. These emissions are now being offset through the protection of carbon-rich habitat via World Land Trust’s carbon balanced programme.

The programme leverages WLT REDD+ (reducing emissions from deforestation and forest degradation) projects to protect highly biodiverse areas under threat from human activity. Since its outset, supporters of the programme have reportedly offset more than 610,000 tonnes of carbon, and provided over £2.5m of funding. Parkside is supporting biodiverse WLT projects in Ecuador, Mexico and Vietnam.

Dan Little, managing director, Parkside, said: “We’re committed to being a sustainable business and our Carbon Balanced status represents an important milestone. It joins a range of activities we undertake to drive the environmental agenda and become more sustainable. These include other initiatives with World Land Trust and a range of high recycled content tiles and installation products.

“While technology and processes improve, it is currently difficult to completely eliminate emissions from our operations. Carbon balancing is a good way to redress this. Analysing our emissions, making progressive reductions and offsetting what’s not possible to reduce at this current time; the three-step journey has been insightful and has given complete clarity to the emissions of our operations.”
