Abacus announces Carbon neutral solutions

27 July 2012 10.00 BST

(UK) - Green Commitment gives customers ability to have a Carbon Neutral lighting system for first twelve months of operation.

Marketing Director, Ian Smith, commented. "Our customers demand a lighting system which is high performing whilst being as environmentally conscious as possible, for both LED and traditional lighting technology. We are delighted to be able to provide them with a great solution where the Carbon saved becomes their property."

Abacus has partnered with OxTreeGen, to provide the offset by planting trees and creating new woodlands in the UK. OxTreeGen are leaders in their field and ensure that the latest accreditation and management techniques are used to create a lasting legacy for all. The key benefit is that the "offset" for the product becomes the property of the customer, enabling it to be used in their Carbon calculations.

Mark Lay, Director of OxTreeGen, commented "We are very pleased to be working with Abacus and helping them and their customers reduce the carbon emissions of high performing lighting systems."

Abacus are also working hard on reducing their Carbon emissions. The aggressive target which has been set by the UK government is for a 34% reduction in Carbon emissions by 2020, something which Abacus are already firmly on track to achieve.

Global Operations Director, Chris Welbourn, commented: "We are striving hard at our operations around the world to achieve the carbon reduction targets way ahead of the local government requirements. Both in our European and Asian manufacturing facilities, we have made great progress.  All of my teams are ensuring that we minimise the environmental impact of every product and process."
