Trimetals pledge to reduce Carbon Footprint

Leading manufacturer of high-quality metal garden sheds and storage solutions and Secured by Design member company Trimetals Ltd, has pledged to reduce its carbon footprint as part of the SWMAS "MAKE IT NET ZERO" programme.

"We are thrilled to be part of the MAKE IT NET ZERO programme," said Garry Smith, Managing Director of Trimetals Ltd. "We take our environmental responsibilities seriously and are committed to reducing our carbon footprint. We believe that all companies have a duty to take action to tackle climate change and we are proud to be doing our part." 

As part of its commitment to the programme, Trimetals Ltd will be working closely with the SWMAS, the Manufacturing Advisory Service for manufacturers in the South West of England, to identify areas where it can reduce its carbon footprint. The company will be looking at its manufacturing processes, supply chain, and energy consumption to find ways to reduce emissions. 

"We are delighted that Trimetals Ltd has signed up to the MAKE IT NET ZERO programme," said Don Parsons, Net Zero Specialist, SWMAS. "The programme aims to help manufacturers in the South West region of the UK transition towards net-zero emissions. By working together, we can achieve our goal of a more sustainable future." 

The MAKE IT NET ZERO programme is part of a wider effort to tackle climate change and reduce greenhouse gas emissions. It is hoped that other companies will follow Trimetals  example and sign up to the programme, making a significant contribution to the UK's efforts to reach net-zero emissions by 2050. 

Lyn Poole, Secured by Design, said: “I am impressed with Trimetals pledge and actions in moving towards a reducing their carbon footprint as a company. Here in the UK if all companies moved towards this it would make much more of an impact. Every company like Trimetals is a win towards the fight against global warming. Well done Trimetals.”
