The standard is the world's leading independent certification of achievements by organisations to cut greenhouse gases, more commonly known as a company's carbon footprint. It confirms a sustained reduction in greenhouse gas emissions by Doosan Babcock over a three-year period.
In addition to verifying Doosan Babcock's greenhouse gas emissions data, the certification auditors at the Carbon Trust also examined improvement measures and the company's carbon reduction plans for the future.
The certification builds on Doosan Babcock’s company-wide commitment to report carbon footprint data. This started with the quantification and reporting of greenhouse gas emissions data across the company's global operations back in 2012. This process is verified annually to the recognised framework for greenhouse gas accounting, ISO14064, by Lloyd's Register Quality Assurance (LRQA).
Commenting on the award, Andrew Hunt, Chief Executive Officer of Doosan Babcock, said: “This is fantastic news. Carbon reduction is at the heart of our corporate vision and will play a critical role in building a sustainable future for our business, our employees and the communities we serve. Being awarded the Carbon Trust Standard for our efforts is a welcome indicator that we’re making solid progress.”
Lee Gardner, Environmental Manager for Doosan Babcock, added: “Our environment team will continue to drive further internal carbon reductions through engagement with all areas of the business, so as to ensure all improvement potential is identified and realised. The Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon is a recognised step towards our low-carbon ambitions.”
