Actikem Invests in Low Carbon Technologies

Building Sustainability

As part of Actikem’s strategy to be a more sustainable business, the company have developed plans to reduce their environmental impact by investing in new low carbon technologies that will also reduce energy consumption, saving costs and driving down their Carbon Footprint.

Lighting

To help with these plans, Actikem approached the Carbon Trust. After a detailed site audit a prioritised action plan was written. Actikem have taken the decision to invest in new low energy LED lighting in their warehouse and office spaces, and upgrade the air compressors at their Warrington site.

Trevor Gleave commented ‘our LED warehouse lights and air compressor upgrade are due to be installed in September. As well as offering us sustainability and efficiency benefits, there will be some cost savings to the business too. We are always mindful of ways in which we can seek to reduce our carbon footprint and demonstrate our commitment to our vision of the future.’

The fluorescent lighting in the office space will also be replaced with special artificial daylight LED lights, simulating daylight, where in recent studies have been shown to improve employee performance by 15%.
