Dave Gummerson Managing Director, Elite Plastics
Elite Plastics are one of the UK's leading manufacturers of bespoke polythene films, bags & covers producing excellent quality polythene at very competitive prices.
January 2022: Pro Enviro is a fantastic company. We have been utilising them for over five years, to develop and implement our Net Zero Carbon Strategy. Due to Pro Enviro's expertise, we have been able to greatly reduce our carbon footprint, by intelligently investing in green technologies. Our new, greener technologies significantly reduce our energy consumption, and energy costs, and offer quick payback. Pro Enviro also supports us by identifying and applying for suitable grants for these technologies, to further reduce payback time and making the projects much more financially viable. Without Pro Enviro, we would not have been able to achieve so much in such a short space of time. I would highly recommend them to any business that wants to review their energy usage and understand their carbon footprint, and that would like to do this as cost effectively and intelligently as possible.
Like every business, we have been concerned about the rapid rise of energy costs and our energy efficiency. Thanks to the support of Pro Enviro, who helped us identify several areas for improvement and access the most appropriate funding for all of our requirements, we have been able to implement a low carbon strategy and effectively address the potential for cost savings and carbon reduction – all of which we are taking action on. This will reduce our considerable annual energy costs (£317,000) by £62,000 and 267 tonnes of CO2e. With the help of Pro Enviro, we will continue to manage, understand and improve our use of energy throughout Elite Plastics facilities and processes.
