Our success story on reducing Carbon Footprint

Member News

The Low Carbon SMEs programme has supported Advanced Engineering in reducing the Carbon Footprint by 60 tonnes. The Birmingham-based company has been part of Aston University’s Low Carbon SMEs Project.

Andrew Stevens, Quality Manager at Advanced Engineering said “What we’ve discovered about our energy consumption since we’ve been part of the project and the energy cost reductions we’ve been able to make so far has been incredible. All in all, we’re changing a culture which is being embraced company-wide, rather than making a quick change. We’ve made considerable progress so far and are still actively working with Aston University to build upon what we’ve already achieved.”

John Kyffin-Hughes, business engagement manager at Aston University, said: “Advanced Engineering is one of our star performers. “The results they’ve achieved so far shows that by improving the way you manage energy has as much impact on reducing your energy costs and carbon footprint as implementing technical measures such as installing LED lighting.”
