Building better green credentials creates a silver lining

Local building services company, James Frew, has received a Silver Award from the Crichton Carbon Centre in recognition for efforts to reduce its carbon footprint.

The Stevenston-based business, which provides heating and plumbing services to both domestic householders and public sector organisations, has been working with the Centre on reviewing its processes and delivery of services to minimise its impact on the environment.

Mike Bonaventura, Chief Executive of the Crichton Carbon Centre, which is a not-for-profit organisation based at Crichton University in Dumfries, presented James Frew with a certificate of achievement.

Roddy Frew, Managing Director said, “Reducing our footprint is a responsibility we take seriously and there are always improvements and changes to be made to keep improving on our efforts. We need to all be playing a part and recognising the severity of our actions on the environment if we want to continue to protect and cherish our natural landscape.”

The Crichton Carbon Centre was founded in 2007 to provide leadership in promoting the transition to a low carbon society.
