Carbon Management

Cappagh is a forward thinking organisation and has maintained its competitive edge through its recycling activities which have been part of the organisation for over 10 years. However, carbon management is rising up the agenda for Government and the world population as a whole. To demonstrate our commitment to reducing the impact of our operations for future generations and comply with our client’s expectations, Cappagh has engaged with Reading University’s Engineering Faculty in a joint project.

Through offering a dissertation subject for a Master of Science Degree candidate, a project was specifically launched to assess the carbon impact of Cappagh’s activities and derive solutions to reduce the impact as far as is possible.

This project had key objectives:

  1. Establish the carbon footprint of the Business
  2. Establish the embodied carbon intensity of the service we provide to clients
  3. Create a carbon reduction strategy and action plan for the company for the next 5 years, including a combination of energy avoidance, energy efficiency, process improvement and increasing self-generated renewable energy.

As a result, Cappagh has in place and is acting upon, a carbon reduction strategy for the next 5 years.
