The Maintenance Supply Co. Ltd commits to carbon reduction with The Planet Mark Certification

The Maintenance Supply Co. Ltd (MSC), a family run supply company that delivers throughout the UK, has achieved certification to The Planet Mark.

First year certification to The Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.

Steve Malkin, CEO of Planet First and Founder of The Planet Mark, commented; We are delighted to be certifying The Maintenance Supply Co. for the first time; “The company’s commitment to reducing its carbon emissions in its operations and minimising its environmental impacts is to be celebrated. In following their sustainability goals, MSC has enabled customers to buy products and services from a business that is committed to continuous improvement in sustainability, thereby improving their own impacts on society and the environment”.

Ross Osborne, Director, MSC: “Having seen many sustainability initiatives and accreditations across Europe it’s exceptionally daunting for an and SME to select an ideology that fits within its own business roadmap in doing what it can to help rescue the planet. MSC, as ultimately a wholesaler delivering daily into one of the most congested cities on the planet needed to make the right choice.  After spending the afternoon with Steve and his team it was clear The Planet Mark was the right approach for MSC to understand it’s exposure and ultimately deliver its goals and ambitions for lowering it’s C02.”

“They make it simple to capture data and determine what’s required to achieve certification.  It’s an eye opener which inadvertently drives you to want to achieve more. Its an exciting time for MSC as we incorporate another business into our domain and we can’t wait to work with The Planet Mark and the rest of The Planet Mark family closer to see what we can achieve. We can’t do this as one, but we can achieve this together.”

After commencing trading 20 years ago, the company keeps over 3000 lines in stock including specialist graffiti, chemicals, paper products, health & safety and PPE products.

This is MSC’s first year of business carbon footprint reporting. As part of certification to The Planet Mark, the company has set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.

MSC’s total carbon footprint in the year ending December 2018 was 181.6 tCO2e. The relative carbon footprint was 4.78 tCO2e per employee. The footprint includes emissions from natural gas, purchased electricity, fuel used by the fleet, waste, car business travel, and printing paper for its two sites: MSC East (Codham Hall, Brentwood) and MSC West (Ocean House, Sunbury). Water consumption data has not been included this year. Travel comprised the majority of emissions, accounting for 61% of the company’s carbon footprint.

If MSC were to achieve their carbon reduction target, it would save the equivalent carbon of 8 return flights from London to New York.

First year certification to The Planet Mark is based on the commitment to continuous improvement in sustainability in its business operations by measuring and reducing its carbon footprint and engaging its stakeholders.
