MGS is delighted to have joined forces with their Carbon Partner Auditel to deliver their objective of becoming Carbon Neutral while on their longer-term journey to reaching Net Zero.
MGS manufactures and supplies a wide range of high-quality products for environmental and civil engineering applications, including ground source heat recovery, landfill leachate management and gas extraction, railway track drainage pipes, and equipment and consumables for ground investigation and ground water monitoring. Our family business has been operating successfully for over 35 years, now from three locations in the UK and one site in Germany.
Our Head Office can be found in the Suffolk countryside, we manufacture in both Suffolk and Coventry, and our distribution hub is in the Northeast. Our German operation focuses primarily on ground source heat recovery products for central Europe.
Managing Director of MGS, Anthony Stupak is passionate about the preservation of our environment, and finding ways to reduce the impact that our products have on the planet. Anthony comments, “Much of our business centres around oil-based plastics, which are essential for durability, however we are investing a lot of time into researching suitable alternatives. This would be a huge step forward for us and our industry as a whole.
With the help of the Auditel team led by Julie Adams, the next natural step is to measure the carbon footprint of MGS and our products, giving us a solid foundation to build from and improve on. This will help us to identify the next initiatives and support us with the ultimate goal of achieving net zero.
We are excited to lead the way in the sectors we supply! We had over 600 solar panels installed in 2015 and they were a terrific investment for reducing our electricity bills and CO2 footprint. We may extend them further to offset the extra energy we anticipate needing for new machinery in the coming years.
We have almost fully transitioned to LED lighting, we have significantly reduced paper usage, last year we installed EV charging points at two of our sites, and we’ve introduced electric vehicles to the company fleet. We are excited to be on this new journey with Auditel to continue reducing our CO2 footprint.”
