North England Laboratory Supplies (NELS) has joined forces with their new Carbon Partner Auditel to deliver their objective of becoming Carbon Neutral while on their longer-term objective of reaching Net Zero. Working alongside NELS operational teams, Auditel’s Carbon Auditors have calculated that the Carbon Footprint for NELS across Scope 1,2 and 3 emissions is 109.22 tCO2e. 

Scott McQuilkin, Managing Director for NELS comments. “As a group of Limited companies with shared ownership, we are actively building clear pathways towards carbon neutrality. From reducing where possible to planting trees, we are proud to say we are doing our upmost to help reach net zero.

We appreciate that our daily operations can affect the environment, as well as our customers or suppliers.

With this in mind, we were pleased to join Auditel and begin our journey towards reducing carbon footprint. We can say with confidence, that we have come along way since the start of our journey (planting trees and electric vehicles is just the beginning!) and join everyone to help reach net zero.”

My team here at NELS are now working with the experts at Auditel designing the first of many annual Carbon Reduction Plans that will highlight the current options available to us, the ROI and the impact it will have to proactively lower our Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions.”

Sean Connaughton Carbon Auditor at Auditel added, “We are delighted to be working with NELS. They are a market leader in specialist laboratory supplies and now they are once again leading the way on their journey to Net Zero. We look forward to continuing working with the team and their supply chain to help them achieve an industry recognised standard of Carbon Neutrality.”
