AEON’s Thermal Vacuum Chamber goes Carbon Neutral

22.07.2022AEON’s Thermal Vacuum Chamber goes Carbon Neutral

We have BIG news!

Since COP26, our environmental impact has been something playing on all of our minds at AEON. We have been researching ways we can mitigate our carbon footprint and realised the most carbon heavy operation we have had over recent months, centres around the work to set up CERES -our in-house testing facility.

We have been busily calculating the carbon footprint incurred in setting up CERES and we’re pleased to say we have been able to partner with a leading Carbon Credit organisation to offset this cost. This means that the CERES facility is effectively carbon neutral!

What is Carbon Neutrality?

Carbon neutrality means that the carbon footprint of a company, product, service or event has been calculated on the basis of internationally recognised standards and fully offset by supporting certified carbon offset project.

Offsetting and carbon footprint mitigation is a necessary next step in the development of our facility and our position within the market, prioritising our environment and offsetting any impact our work could have.

Our Partner: Climate Partner

We have chosen to work with Climate Partner, a solution provider for corporate climate action. Their efforts are geared towards the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the United Nations. We have decided to support the Hydropower Project in Virunga, DR Congo, a place that is close to the hearts of our Directors.

Virunga’s waters are both a source of life and energy. Rivers and streams within the National Park nurture unique plants and animals, such as the world’s last remaining wild mountain gorillas. Africa's oldest national park on the eastern border of the Democratic Republic of Congo has the greatest biodiversity of the entire continent. It was a no brainer as a team on animal lovers that this project was the one for us!

Our thought process is; small changes to how we do business might inspire others to look at their processes, who may go on to inspire some more people – just like the domino effect.

In looking how to tackle what is the biggest problem of our generation, we like to think of the advice we received from a much-admired colleague; how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time!
