They engaged with Energy and Carbon experts ECA Business Energy to help them on this part of their sustainability journey.

Working with Kizzy and the team at K J Rule, ECA calculated the carbon footprint for their site at Nanpean, St Austell, Cornwall across all three scopes, created and implemented a comprehensive carbon management plan and invested in verified carbon offsetting programs.

K J Rule have always demonstrated a commitment to reducing their carbon footprint and have previously implemented initiatives such as LED lighting and 100% green electricity purchasing.

Achieving carbon neutrality further demonstrates this commitment to their customers and supply chain.

The implementation of the carbon management plan will see them committing to reducing their emissions to agreed targets as set out in the plan year on year moving forwards.

Kizzy Udy, Director K J Rule said

“As a company, we take our environmental responsibility very seriously, so we are extremely proud of achieving Carbon Neutraility.  This demonstrates our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint and progress towards our long term sustainable development.”

Steve Plunkett, Volvo / Polestar Body & Paint Programme Manager said, “KJ Rule are a consistent high performing approved Bodyshop for our two brands, they are a High Achiever on a regular basis, so its of no surprise to me that they have achieved carbon neutral status. A very BIG well done to Kizzy and the team there”.

Steve Silverwood, Managing Director ECA Business Energy added, “We are delighted to have assisted Kizzy and the team in becoming carbon neutral.  They have committed to actively reduce their emissions year on year as well as offsetting any outstanding emissions. We look forward to helping them on their ongoing environmental journey”.
