Mumford and Wood announce carbon neutral organisation status

Mumford and Wood, an Essex based Timber Window and Door manufacturer are excited to announce their carbon neutral organisation status, possibly the first to do so in the industry. Mumford and Wood commissioned Carbon Footprint™ in 2021 to conduct a full annual audit of the firm, business practices and travel to reduce their carbon footprint and became 100% carbon neutral from January 2022.

Dion Panting, General Manager from Mumford & Wood explains: “As a manufacturer focused on using natural timber materials, it only seems right that we are environmentally responsible. We enlisted Carbon Footprint™ to advise us on how to make changes that will make a big difference. Our sales force use only hybrid cars and we continue to employ as many local people as possible, reducing emissions from staff that commute to our offices.

“We also continually review the green credentials of our manufacturing machinery, and this is a huge consideration for any new purchases we make. We had already transitioned to using only LED/low energy lighting throughout our office space and want to do even more to help.”

Mumford and Wood also pledge a UK native tree for every project completed and clients can even select where they are planted.  Although UK based, Mumford and Wood source the majority of their wood from overseas and so to help offset any transportation emissions have also started work with the Rimba Raya Biodiversity Reserve Project to aid deforestation issues in Indonesia in addition to a verified carbon standard reduction project in the Amazon, Brazil, offsetting around 350 tonnes of CO2 in 2021 alone.
