Roman, a leading UK shower enclosure manufacturer has announced carbon neutral certification from the Carbon Trust.

The thorough process covers all operations and emissions from Roman’s 400,000 square feet manufacturing site in Newton Aycliffe, County Durham, in addition to emissions from employee’s commuting, business travel and the treatment of waste generated in own operations.

Achieving Carbon Neutral status has been a key objective for Roman over recent years and highlights Roman’s enormous and ongoing commitment to the environment. Roman also has a significant focus on materials and the Circular Economy and is committed to only using recycled aluminium and ensuring that all packaging is recycled cardboard.

Hugh Jones, Managing Director, Advisory at the Carbon Trust said: “We have worked with Roman Limited this year to verify their 2019 and 2020 Scope 1, 2 and 3 emissions in accordance with ISO 14064-3. Roman Limited have met the requirements under PAS 2060 and we are delighted to certify their emissions and operations at Durham as carbon neutral as part of their sustainability journey.

David Osborne, CEO of Roman, added: “We are extremely proud to have achieved Carbon Neutral status. This is already extremely important for us in the hotel and project sector; increasingly so in housebuilding; and will hopefully become ever more important in the retail sector. As the leading British manufacturer we give huge focus to sustainability and further breakthroughs will be coming over the next few years.”
