Thorite achieves Carbon Trust accreditation

Thorite achieves Carbon Trust accreditation

Wednesday 25th April 2018

For a good number of years and for some very good reasons, Thorite and their suppliers have enthusiastically marketed the concept of energy efficiency. We all know how an energy efficient processing system has cost-saving benefits but over and above that is the knowledge that by reducing energy consumption by utilising the latest technology, customers are doing their bit to help the planet. Now, in recognition of their past achievements, Thorite has been awarded Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier status.

The process of acquiring Carbon Trust Accredited Supplier status is, for all the best reasons, not an easy one. For Thorite, the numerous forms and an interview were completed by Steve Boults, the Capital Equipment Sales Manager. Steve also had to supply three comprehensive client case studies which showed how those clients were able to benefit from the help and advice from Thorite staff. Finally, those clients also had to agree to being interviewed by specialist Carbon Trust staff. What this now means is that Thorite, through its accreditation, is able to help customers through the Green Business Fund.

The Green Business Fund is a Carbon Trust initiative which, for successful applicants, includes a 15% financial contribution towards the cost of energy saving equipment up to a total of £5,000. The contribution is available to small and medium sized businesses with less than two hundred and fifty employees, for projects that comply with the requirements of the fund.

It works like this. Thorite staff will data-log a customers’ existing compressor and work out the saving that could be achieved by installing new equipment. If the customer is in agreement, Thorite will supply application forms for the customer to complete. The customer then submits the forms to the Green Business Fund. Once managers at the Green Business Fund have agreed the purchase, the new compressor is installed by Thorite who will then submit their invoice for the funds to be released.

“We have been looking at Carbon Trust accreditation for some while.” said Steve Boults

“It is a time-consuming process but one that we believe will be of benefit to our customers into the future.”
