We believe being Carbon Neutral is just the beginning.
There are many ways to approach a sustainability or carbon footprint strategy and much is dependent on the activities of that company. The Lanchester Group runs a commercial sustainability strategy which helps us prioritise the biggest impact projects which also make financial sense.
Our operations on the Greencroft Estate are powered by three wind turbines which produce around 5,500,000 kWh (kilowatt hours) of clean, renewable electricity per year. We presently use around 60% of this electricity with the remaining – enough to power x800 three bedroom homes – feeding into the national grid, via our on-site substations, for use locally. A 41 kW solar array on the roof of our office complex is calculated to produce enough clean electricity to cover day-to-day use.
