The Cumbria-based company, which turns over around £12.5m, started its push to be a greener organisation by recycling cardboard, paper, plastics and aluminium used on site. Now, it segregates and removes all waste material and recycles glass and timber as well. “Our aim is to recycle 90 per cent of all the waste we produce,” Schofield says. A recent Carbon Trust survey of Kudos Showers highlighted new areas the firm could focus on. Schofield explains: “We’re trying to reduce our heating bill so we’ve put thermostats on the gas heaters in the factory so they don’t burn all day. “We have draught proofing curtains and automatic high-speed roller shutter doors. In some cases the factory was too bright so we’ve reduced some of the lighting.” Schofield says one of the best things about the initiatives is that they make good business sense. A lower heating bill, for example, is particularly important in the wake of rising fuel prices. Picture source
