Swift signs green pledge

Caravan, motorhome and holiday lodge manufacturer Swift Group has signed a five-year deal with energy consultants Orchard Energy to make their processes friendlier to the environment.

Swift has pledged to reduce its carbon footprint as part of the Carbon Reduction Commitment, a scheme encouraging large organisations – which are responsible for 10% of the UK’s greenhouse gas emissions – to adopt a greener approach to their business.

“Our current production facility, which opened in 2006, was specifically designed to minimise lighting and heating costs and we are keen to ensure that we are always doing everything we can to reduce our environmental impact,” Swift’s Jim Bolton told the Caravan Times website.

“Swift already has targets in place for carbon reduction and improved efficiency and our role will be to manage the administration associated with the compliance process and provide them with the information and tools they need to monitor usage and assess their energy strategy regularly over the life of the contract,” added Orchard Energy’s Marie Titley.
