Marshall Aerospace and Defence Group has switched to a 100 percent renewable electricity supply, as part of its ongoing commitment to reduce its environmental impact.
Marshall fuelled by 100 percent green electricity
The new contract with British Gas means that the company now reports zero carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions per kWh of electricity consumed.
Marshall ADG now gets all of its electricity for its sites in Cambridge and Kirkbymoorside from sustainable sources, including solar, tidal, wind and biomass fuels.
“We are a responsible business and want to do our bit to reduce our impact on the planet,” said Marshall ADG, Senior Supplier Manager, Derek Rankin.
“We were seeking confirmation that the energy we receive is from totally sustainable sources and British Gas was able to give us those assurances. We’re delighted to know that we’re doing what we can.”
The move to British Gas followed an extensive tendering process led by Derek. As well as providing a competitive deal, British Gas also certifies that the electricity supplied is totally renewable.
Switching its electricity to British Gas addresses the environmental part of a wider continuous improvement programme at Marshall ADG.
Founded in 1909, the Marshall Group has a turnover of £2.5bn and over 5,700 employees. Headquartered on a 900-acre site in Cambridge, Marshall has three principal arms to the business: Aerospace and Defence; Property; and Ventures.
