This thriving branch of the UK-wide drainage network recently shared a blog post detailing the steps it’s taking to reduce its carbon footprint and become net zero by 2030.
Metro Rod Norwich was delighted to announce its intentions of going greener, and though this thriving, eco-conscious location has already reduced the volume of paper used in the office and implemented a paperless works management system, the drainage franchise is still discovering new ways to help the environment. In its words, “Working towards net zero by 2030 is something to be implemented in stages and with due diligence.”
Metro Rod Norwich’s carbon footprint reduction process in 2022 begins with THG, a company that partners with tree planting businesses and communities across the world to restore healthy forests and reduce extreme poverty. In the words of Zarvin Wildey, the franchise’s Head of Sales and Marketing, “While looking into tree planting partners, it was brought to our attention that not all planting partners were as transparent as we would have liked. Some companies are in contract with logging companies and would allow the trees to be felled once they were 10 years old.”
THG was chosen for its transparency, and for shunning these less ethical practices. So far, Metro Rod Norwich has been responsible for “over 10,000 miles of CO2 sequestration”, and looks forward to increasing this and continuing to offset the carbon emissions of its vans. The franchise concluded by sharing that, “In the near future, we will be gifting a tree to customers who take the time to leave us a review on their experience [...] This is just the start of our carbon journey at Metro Rod (Norwich). Over the coming months we will be actively working towards our goal and reducing our carbon footprint.” Find out more about Metro Rod via its profile page, which you’ll discover linked above.
