Mulalley goes carbon neutral

Mulalley has successfully achieved carbon neutrality, following an intensive programme of carbon and energy management and reduction within the business.

Mulalley has had a programme of carbon and energy management in place for 5 years and over the past year has reduced their carbon emissions by 24%.

Sustainability is a key consideration for Mulalley and carbon management is a key aspect of this alongside ISO 50001, their membership of the Considerate Constructors Scheme (CCS) and also compliance with the Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS).

To achieve carbon neutrality, Mulalley has had independent assessments of their carbon emissions assessed by Carbon Footprint Ltd, the sustainability consultants, and put in place carbon management plans to reduce them. Mulalley has now taken the final step to offset the unavoidable emissions, via supporting four projects from around the world that not only offset their carbon emissions but also provide additional health and welfare benefits in developing regions of the World.

The carbon offset projects include a clean water project in Uganda, cookstoves in Kenya, small scale hydroelectric power in Chile and wind-power in India.

Company Director Eamon O’Malley said “We are proud to become a carbon neutral business and will continue to monitor, reduce and support communities around the world to minimise the impact our business has on the environment”

Dr Wendy Buckley, Client Director at Carbon Footprint Ltd said “A great achievement by Mulalley and one that marks them out as a leader. They have committed to measure, reduce and offset emissions that affect our environment on a proactive basis rather than out of compliant measures that others do.”
