Cummins Allison UK, a supplier of coin and banknote sorters/counters for cash intensive businesses, has achieved the Planet Mark certification.
This is Cummins Allison’s first year of business carbon footprint reporting and certification to Planet Mark. They first calculated the carbon footprint of their William H Klotz House operational site in Coventry for the year ending March 2020.
Cummins Allison’s total carbon footprint in the year ending March 2020 was 230.1 tCO2e and the relative carbon footprint was 4.8 tCO2e per employee.
If Cummins Allison achieves its carbon emissions reduction target it will save the carbon equivalent of driving a car 28,000 miles.
“It is with great pleasure that I welcome Cummins Allison into Planet Mark community. The company has taken an important step in its sustainability journey, and I commend them on both the efforts to measure its carbon footprint and the commitment to reduce this footprint year-on-year. It is not only a job well done, but a statement on the type of future Cummins Allison wants to create – a positive, sustainable one. This is a vision we share, and we look forward to helping Cummins Allison realise its environmental goals.”
Cummins Allison takes a proactive approach to minimise the environmental impact of its activities locally while embracing the larger objective of protecting the environment on a global scale. As well as commitments to use resources efficiently, conserving energy, reducing waste, facilitating waste material recycling and using recycled materials in the manufacture of its products, the company also seeks to engage and educate its employees on the benefits of sustainable behaviour. Cummins Allison also makes wide-ranging social contributions in partnership with its local communities by disclosing environmental information in support of conservation initiatives.
We have entered a decade of climate action, and business is responding to the call. Companies from all industries have taken on responsibility for reducing emissions, both within their own operations and throughout their supply chain. B2B businesses must be especially responsive to this shift in dynamic. Being able to demonstrate a company’s environmental credentials has expanded beyond doing good for the planet, and into a necessity for client acquisition and retention.
