Enva improves Co2 performance for third successive year
1 Mar 2023 |
Recycling and resource recovery specialist, Enva, has improved its carbon avoidance performance for the third consecutive year.
Releasing its latest Sustainability Report, Enva announced that in the financial year to April 2022, the use of its recovered materials avoided the generation of 336,000t of CO2. This saving is 11 times more than the carbon it produces from its own operations, and means it remains on course to meet its ambitious target of ‘15 times’ by 2025.
Within the report, Enva has also confirmed its ambition is to complete comprehensive and objective Life Cycle Assessments (LCAs) for all its recovered materials over the coming year. This work has already highlighted significant CO2 savings for specific recovered materials compared to their virgin equivalents, including Ammonium Sulphate Fertiliser Granules which show a 98% carbon saving and HDPE and Polypropylene granulate which offer 96% and 91% savings respectively.
Enva has also announced the formation of the Enva Foundation which promises to offer expertise and capabilities in remediating and restoring post-industrial and polluted sites that have been damaged by human activity, in conjunction with various charity partners. This initiative will play a valuable role in protecting biodiversity and benefit local communities across the UK and Ireland.
Commenting on the launch of the 2022 Sustainability Report Enva’s CEO, Tom Walsh, said: “It’s a credit to the whole Enva team that we were able to continue to increase the environmental, social and commercial value we generate, despite what remains a challenging economic backdrop. Increasing the amount of carbon we help avoid to 11 times the amount we generate from our operations keeps us on track to meet our target of 15 times by 2025.
We remain committed to maximising the value of the secondary resources we manage and, where relevant, we will continue to take these materials through to fully registered Environmental Product Declaration (EPD) status. This will provide greater parity in the way they are perceived by our customers enabling more robust markets to be formed.’’
