Mitsubishi Electric has been re-certified with the Carbon Trust Standard after being able to demonstrate how it has been measuring, managing and reducing carbon emissions at its Hatfield headquarters. Holders of the Carbon Trust Standard continue to deliver carbon reductions year on year. The latest assessment of the company’s Hatfield site (pictured) shows a 9.2% reduction in absolute footprint and an 18.1% relative reduction measured against turnover.

The report states that Mitsubishi Electric has achieved a considerable reduction in absolute CO2 during the latest assessment period compared to the best-performing organisation in the sector. Successful certification against the Carbon Trust Standard requires organisations to demonstrate good all-round carbon-management in day-to-day operations.

Mitsubishi Electric has occupied the Hatfield building since the late 1980s, and the steel-framed, glass-fronted, 3-storey office block is typical of the era. The company has been looking for ways to improve its energy efficiency, not only to reduce energy consumption and its carbon footprint, but also to use it as a clear example to others.
