Systematic are delighted to be able to further demonstrate their commitment to be Verified Carbon Neutral by 2025 after joining forces with their Carbon Partner Auditel.
Julie Adams, Carbon Auditor for Auditel explains, “Systematic and their impressive design, print, mailing and marketing services, support their clients to enhance their brand profile and marketing returns.
The team and I at Auditel have been blown away with the progress Systematic have made on their carbon journey to date and we are delighted to be helping them on their next impressive millstone to achieving Verified Carbon Neutrality to BSI PAS 2060. Family values have been at the heart of their vision and through their actions you can see that they truly care about their environmental impact and that of their clients.”
Jacqui Vear, Operations Director for Systematic explains their journey. “In 2009, Systematic became accredited to the international environmental standard, ISO 14001. We have achieved reductions in our carbon footprint year-on-year. We’re committed to reducing our emissions, which can be a long process that requires innovation and investment!
The successful implementation of our carbon reduction initiatives are truly transforming our business and lowering our Carbon Footprint.”
Carbon Reduction Initiatives
- Solar Panels – In September 2022 Systematic installed a 50 panel, MCS Accredited, 23kWp solar photovoltaic array at Systematic HQ. If they need to buy electricity, it’s renewable. They have eliminated their need for mains gas, with the installation of a highly efficient infrared heating system across their site in November.
- Electric Vehicles – Systematic were an early adopter of electric vans, and now have a fully electric fleet. A few changes needed to be embraced along the way, yet the pain of adjusting their habits is more than offset by the pride that they have in this claim.
- Recycled materials – The boxes that Systematic pack for their vans use recyclable and often recycled materials, the details go as far as their paper packaging tape.
- No Landfill & FSC paper – Systematic take care when deciding which organisations to work with. Their partners help them ensure that no waste goes to landfill and that the print projects they progress for their clients are on responsibly sourced FSC paper.
Jacqui Vear continues, “What gets measured gets managed, and we’re are aiming to be carbon neutral in 2025. We want to do that with the highest integrity and in a way that stands up to independent scrutiny. We’ll be quantifying, reducing and offsetting our greenhouse gas contribution against the framework of PAS 2060. Developed by the British Standards Institution in 2010, it is an internationally recognised standard for carbon neutrality. We are delighted to be working with Julie and her team at Auditel. With their help we are defining the scope of that claim and progressing our journey of continual improvement.”
“Systematic’s objective is to minimise the environmental impact of our operation and help our clients make informed and sustainable procurement decisions.”
