1st August 2022Tweet
Sedgwick has announced that its UK repair solutions division has achieved carbon-neutral status after securing PAS 2060 certification.
The news underscores the company’s commitment to sustainability throughout its operations.
Last year Sedgwick’s repair division carried out 10,000 building repair contracts through its UK network of 75 managed contractors while simultaneously creating, promoting and monitoring an enterprise-wide carbon management plan – including remote site visits to reduce fuel usage and minimising energy consumption of equipment lighting and heating – that successfully delivered a total carbon reduction of 2,385.25 tCo2e.
Peter Wassell, Sedgwick Technical Director in the UK, said, “Becoming carbon-neutral is a key milestone for our repair solutions team here in the UK and reflects our aspiration to lead the industry in acting with sustainable practices and reducing our carbon emissions. To create a zero-carbon future, it is crucial that the insurance industry steps up and takes wide-ranging measures to tackle emissions.”
Alongside PAS 2060 accreditation, Sedgwick’s repair solutions division has also held ISO14001 certification from the Environmental Management System (EMS) and signed up to the Social Enterprise UK and the Responsible Business Tracker by Business in the Community (BITC).Tweet
