Fosroc UK & ROI has achieved CarbonNeutral® product certification in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, a leading global framework for carbon neutrality.

To achieve CarbonNeutral® product certification, they are working on an on-going basis with Climate Impact Partners, specialist in carbon market solutions for climate action.

So far, independent assessments of greenhouse gas emissions have been completed relating to the manufacture of Conbextra GP, Conbextra HF, Patchroc 250, Renderoc HB45 and Renderoc LA60.

Actions taken to reduce their footprint includes reducing energy consumption in the factory, moving to a predominantly electric car fleet, supporting social value projects and adopting more eco-friendly product ingredients and packaging. 

Unavoidable emissions have been offset through projects including its renewable energy portfolio and Aqua Clara Water Filters in Kenya.

Craig Harcombe, General Manager UK & Ireland at Fosroc, said, “We are delighted to work with experts in this sector, Climate Impact Partners.

They have over 25 years’ experience supporting over 600 carbon projects across 56 countries focused on transforming the global economy, improving health and livelihoods, and restoring a thriving planet.

“Working with Climate Impact Partners means all the projects we are supporting are independently verified and have a real and positive impact on the climate.”

A spokesperson for Climate Impact Partners said, “We work with leading organisations to deliver action on climate change and create a more sustainable world.

“Our joined-up approach helps organisations address their environmental impacts through high-quality carbon market solutions that also deliver positive impact for nature and local communities.”
