Manor Interior Solutions’ Commitment to Reducing Carbon Footprint

Refurbishment Companies: Pioneers in Sustainability

In today’s world, the construction industry faces a dual challenge: meeting the growing demand for new and refurbished spaces while minimising environmental impact. Companies like Manor Interior Solutions, play a pivotal role in this effort.

By helping customer making informed choices about materials and construction methods, we can help significantly reduce carbon footprint of your project and leading the way in sustainable construction practices.

According to the UK Green Building Council, the built environment contributes around 40% of the UK’s total carbon footprint. This statistic highlights the pressing need for companies in our sector to adopt greener practices.

At Manor Interior Solutions, we believe that sustainability is not just an option but a responsibility. Our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint is at the heart of our operations, influencing every project we undertake.

Our Commitment to Achieving Net Zero

Manor Interior Solutions is committed to achieving Net Zero emissions by 2050. This ambitious goal is a testament to our dedication to sustainability and our proactive approach to reducing our environmental impact. Our Carbon Reduction Plan (CRP), published in March 2023, outlines our strategy and the steps we are taking to reach Net Zero.

Baseline Emissions Footprint

Understanding our baseline emissions is crucial for measuring our progress. For the baseline year of June 2021 to May 2022, our emissions were recorded as follows:

  • Scope 1 Emissions: 1.617 tCO2e
  • Scope 2 Emissions: 3.497 tCO2e
  • Scope 3 Emissions: 10.212 tCO2e

These emissions cover various sources, including purchased goods and services, fuel and energy-related services, business travel, transportation and distribution (both upstream and downstream), employee commuting, and operational waste. Our total baseline emissions amounted to 15.326 tCO2e.

Current Emissions Reporting

For the reporting year of 2021-2022, our emissions remained consistent with our baseline, totalling 15.326 tCO2e. This consistency allows us to accurately measure the impact of our carbon reduction initiatives.

Completed Carbon Reduction Initiatives

Since establishing our baseline, we have implemented several environmental management measures to reduce our emissions. In 2022, we committed to measuring our carbon footprint annually to identify and address pinch points, ensuring continuous improvement in our efforts to reduce emissions.

Future Carbon Reduction Plans

Looking ahead, we have several initiatives planned to further reduce our carbon footprint:

  • Improving Energy Performance of Our Offices: We will identify opportunities to enhance energy efficiency within our offices, reducing overall energy consumption.
  • Procurement: We will analyse our supply chains to identify carbon reduction opportunities and develop an action plan. This includes engaging and encouraging our suppliers to reduce their carbon footprints through procurement and contract management activities.
  • Staff Commuting: We will offer financial incentives for staff to use electric vehicles, promoting greener commuting options.

Sustainable Materials and Methods

One of the primary ways we can reduce our carbon footprint is by choosing sustainable materials. This involves selecting materials that are not only eco-friendly but also durable and efficient. For instance, using recycled or reclaimed materials can significantly cut down on the energy required to produce new materials. Additionally, opting for materials with lower embodied energy, such as bamboo or recycled steel, helps in minimising the overall environmental impact.

Beyond materials, the methods we employ in our projects are crucial. Techniques such as modular construction and prefabrication can reduce waste and improve efficiency. By assembling components off-site in a controlled environment, we can ensure precision and reduce the amount of material waste generated. Furthermore, these methods often result in faster construction times, which means less energy consumption on-site.

Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) and Compliance

Energy efficiency is another critical area where refurbishment companies can make a substantial difference. Compliance with Energy Performance Certificates (EPC) requirements ensures that buildings meet specific energy efficiency standards. At Manor Interior Solutions, we not only comply with these standards but strive to exceed them. By incorporating energy-efficient systems and technologies into our projects, we help our clients reduce their energy consumption and lower their carbon emissions.

For example, installing advanced insulation materials, energy-efficient windows, and smart HVAC systems can drastically improve a building’s energy performance. Additionally, integrating renewable energy sources, such as solar panels, further enhances sustainability. Our team is dedicated to staying updated on the latest advancements in energy efficiency to provide our clients with cutting-edge solutions that are both environmentally friendly and cost-effective.
