Certification story

Selectaglaze, a specialist designer, manufacturer and installer of bespoke secondary glazing systems, in London and across the UK, has achieved Planet Mark certification.

This is Selectaglaze’s second year of business carbon footprint reporting and Planet Mark certification. Since certifying to Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.

Selectaglaze’s total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2020 was 211.3 tCO2e, a reduction of 19%. Selectaglaze’s total carbon per employee in the year ending 2020 was 3.1 tCO2e, an increase of 15%. 

Selectaglaze’s carbon cut is the same as preventing 124,000 car miles from being driven.

Steve Malkin
Founder and CEO
Planet Mark
“Selectaglaze has made significant steps forward this year, and I applaud the team for their efforts. Glazing is an industry with an increasing focus on climate, and Selectaglaze has taken the opportunity presented with both hands. Such a large reduction in emissions is a real statement, both to competitors and clients, that Selectaglaze is serious about sustainability.”

Certification story

Selectaglaze is committed to sustaining a successful and ethical business by minimising the environmental and social impact of its activities. The company has a number of initiatives to support these goals, such as selecting vehicles with ultra-low emission or as low emission as is practical and ensuring all timber and paper products are Forest Stewardship Council certified. The company also seeks to engage its supply chain by identifying local and ethical suppliers for products and cutting business travel emissions, as well as spreading best practice recommendations through its network of employees.

The operations and management of buildings have recently received deserved focus for their role in combating carbon emissions. Emissions cuts in building use are both important and achievable. Contractors and suppliers must take note, and realise the opportunity for truly sustainable change. This requires not only the creation of products that help cut carbon emissions but also business processes to produce in a sustainable manner. 

Future targets

As part of the Planet Mark certification, Selectaglaze has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
