We are always striving to drive energy efficiency across our business and believe in using less, buying better and self-generating more.
Using Less – Through our energy efficiency programmes, we have reduced carbon emissions by 18.8% since 2007/08 . We have done this in various ways, such as increased oven insulation, gas burners that shut down automatically when there are gaps in production and the re-use of plant waste heat to hear our hot water systems.
Buying better –We purchase our electricity with a Renewable Energy Guarantee of Origin (REGO) which ensures that our supplier provides us with energy from a zero carbon renewable source.
Self-generating more – We continue to invest in renewable energy through solar and wind power, in addition to Combined Heat and Power (CHP) technology which has enabled us to reduce our bakeries electricity emissions by 56.2%.
