Thomas Halliwell Ltd are delighted to announce that they have joined forces with their Carbon Partner, Auditel, to deliver on their strategic commitment of reaching Net Zero.

Thomas Halliwell Ltd is a respected and trusted mechanical, electrical and renewable energy contractor that provides effective and bespoke solutions to its clients across the UK in industries that range from pharmaceuticals to space exploration.

Jon Halliwell, Director at Thomas Halliwell, said. “As an ambitious and future-thinking company, we want to grow in a way that is sustainable and responsible – protecting our planet and the environment. We are committed to our goal of becoming carbon neutral in the coming years while on our longer-term journey to reach Net Zero. To help on this mission, we have joined forces with Auditel, who have produced our first carbon footprint report.

We decided to partner with Auditel to get their expert opinion on where we were already succeeding on our sustainability mission – along with the areas where we could improve. Together we have completed the first phase of our journey and now have a detailed breakdown of our carbon footprint across scope 1, 2 and 3 which totals 129.52 tCO2e

As a small to medium size enterprise working in mechanical and electrical (M&E), we are not aware of anyone like us who has taken taking this step on the journey to becoming carbon neutral and reaching Net Zero. Obviously, the UK government has made a legal commitment to achieve net zero carbon emissions by 2050 and we were keen to ‘stay ahead of the game’.

Auditel’s report helped us identify that most of our emissions come from transport. We’re a nationwide business and our employees are sometimes required to go across the country to complete jobs for our clients.

This kind of travel is mainly unavoidable for the growth of our business, so we have already identified ways of helping to cut these emissions – including purchasing an electric van to use on our more local jobs. We’re also excited about the prospect of investing in new low carbon emitting technologies in the future while looking into ways we can offset our emissions.”

Auditels Carbon Specialist Mark Appleton comments. “It’s great to be working with the team at Thomas Halliwell and they are showing real leadership in their sector. They are reducing their own carbon footprint but also helping their customers reduce their carbon emissions as well and becoming a vital “low carbon” link in their customers supply chain.

With many of their public and private sector clients also addressing their carbon emissions this is enabling Thomas Halliwell to make carbon management a competitive advantage for them because they are really aligning with their customer’s needs.”
