Grove goes green with PAS2060

Grove Group has achieved carbon neutrality across its entire group in accordance with PAS2060.

The group collaborated with energy and carbon specialists ECA Business Energy to achieve this and develop strategies to achieve net zero status in the future.

Policies have been put in place over the last four years to reduce their carbon footprint. These include LED lighting, electric vehicles, route planning, paperless systems, digital expansion, and remote working.

Meanwhile, Grove Group also recognises the importance of the supply chain in sustainability within the sector, with over 80% of its emissions coming from scope 3 – which covers indirect emissions such as their supply chain – and is keen to work with leaders across the sector to help support the wider industry move towards a net zero future.

Graham Sutcliffe, MD, said “It’s very encouraging seeing the number of vehicle repairers and distributors making the effort to work towards net zero. The whole supply chain must step up with more innovative digital and logistical solutions.”

Steve Silverwood, MD of ECA Business Energy, said: “Grove Group has always demonstrated its commitment to the environment and sustainability. By formalising this commitment, they will be actively reducing their emissions year on year as well as offsetting any outstanding emissions. We look forward to helping them on their ongoing environmental journey.”
