Shower manufacturer Lakes has been certified as a carbon-neutral company by achieving the Carbon Footprint Standard, having assessed its carbon emissions and achieved carbon neutrality “via support of international certified carbon offset projects”.

The two-stage certification process involves an audit of all greenhouse gas emissions associated with Lakes’ UK operations, which resulted in the award of the Carbon Footprint Standard. Lakes is working closely with Carbon Footprint Ltd to offset the carbon emissions from running a business.

The company is planning trees in the UK, supporting a Uganda borehole rehabilitation project to provide a source of clean drinking water, and supporting a solar power energy installation in India.

“It’s important we all take responsibility for the negative impacts we’re having on our environment,” said Lakes operations director Mick Evans. “By making these changes Lakes is reducing and offsetting its carbon footprint. We’re delighted to have achieved Carbon Neutral status and we hope others will follow our lead.”

Carbon Footprint Ltd client director Wendy Buckley added: “Lakes is taking a leading and proactive position in its market, to measure and manage its carbon impact – even though there is no legislative requirement for them to do so.

“They are making active steps to reduce the carbon emissions in the business, going forward, and by carbon offsetting they are mitigating unavoidable emissions by supporting projects across the world with immediate effect.”
