Deceuninck has reduced its carbon output by 550 cubic metres per year by upgrading the water chilling system in its factory in Calne.

Operations director Darren Woodcock said: “Our current energy usage for chilling the water with our new system is 50% less than it was 12 months ago.

“Our old system was outdated so we wanted to replace it with a more energy efficient and environmentally friendly alternative, that reduced the amount of carbon used.”

Deceuninck has made a commitment to the Science Based Targets (SBTi) programme, with a headline pledge to cut the CO2 emissions from its own operations (Scope 1&2) by 60% by 2030 from a 2021 baseline.

As well as the water cooler upgrade, the systems house has also installed 2,200 solar panels on the roof, generating 895,762 kWh of clean energy a year, saving almost half a million tons of CO2.
