We are now proudly Carbon Neutral!

Our Scope 1 and 2 calculations have been completed by a third party, and the results showed that we could reduce our carbon emissions by switching to hybrid or electric vehicles which is a target we are working towards. We now have 12 hybrid or electric vehicles as part of our fleet which has already reduced our carbon output by 31 tonnes in the last three years.

We gained Carbon Neutral status through making positive decisions across our business. Some of the changes which we made as a company include moving energy suppliers (we now work with suppliers who use energy which is harvested solely from renewable sources), and introducing lighting and heating controls across our National Distribution Centre,

Alongside these changes we also worked on a carbon offsetting project in Brazil through the Salto Pilao Hydropower Plant. Projects like this take carbon out of the atmosphere and the amount that a business needs to offset correlates with the amount of money which needs to be invested.

Our Sustainability Goals

We are proud to be rated in the top 7% of companies within our industry by EcoVadis!

Our future ambition is to achieve Net Zero status and we hope to become an inspiration for local businesses in their efforts to operate in an eco-friendly manner, by inviting them to our offices in Normanton and showcasing our sustainable initiatives.

We aim to have our Scope 3 emissions calculated shortly, and we have set ourselves a target of becoming Net Zero by 2030.

The next 5 years are set to be an important period, with the company targeting ISO 14001 Environmental Management certification and a move to all electric company cars, amongst other directives.

Packaging Update

We have made strides towards reducing the environmental impact of our packaging.

We have done this by ensuring that all of our cardboard boxes are FSC certified, recyclable, and made from mostly recyled materials (63%), implementing a new recycling process to ensure that we do not send waste to landfill, and introducing circular economy focussed products into the market through the addition of a new staff member in our Head of Sustainable Product Innovation.

The Firestay Geo® and Circular Economy

Our Firestay Geo® Sustainable Modular Downlight is the next step towards sustainability and circular economy for BELL Lighting, and we are ahead of the curve in the race towards our eco goals. The downlight housing is designed to remain in the ceiling for life, resulting in zero waste to landfill.

Designed to be used alongside our Firestay Geo® housing, our Geo-Mod® is a sustainable light engine which enables the user to replace the CCT LED unit at the end of product life, with the module being returned to your local BELL Lighting collection hub, resulting in full circular economy.

Upon return to your local wholesaler, another Geo-Mod® product must be purchased and installed within the remaining Geo housing. No disposal is required throughout the process.

The Firestay Geo® patented technology has been developed to be energy saving while incorporating a fully circular economy design.
