A Wirral firm's efforts to help reduce greenhouse gases, streamline waste management and improve its environmental performance have been recognised.

Stiebel Eltron UK, described as a major supplier of heat pump products and renewable energy solutions, has been awarded ISO 14001 Environmental Management accreditation.

To be certified, the Bromborough-based company had to meet the requirements of the standard on an annual basis, by cutting greenhouse gas emissions across the business using its own renewable technologies, implement recycling and waste management measures, and improve its overall environmental progress.

The accreditation comes as STIEBEL ELTRON UK looks to build upon its sustainability initiatives, with the company recently installing Electric Vehicle (EV) charging points at its Wirral headquarters in a bid to support its employees to transition away from fossil fuels. 

As well as providing the latest and most innovative technologies, the company shares industry knowledge with comprehensive training which will empower installers with the expertise to fit them.

Mark McManus, the firm's managing director, said: "Ensuring that we minimise our impact on the world around us is vital to the work we do and a core part of the business as we look to drive renewable heating solutions across the country.

"Companies are rightly being held to account to be as sustainable as possible and this ISO accreditation shows our desire and commitment to reducing our environmental impact.

"Full credit to the Stiebel Eltron UK team leading the process, who worked tirelessly to assess our performance and identify measures which have seen us successfully optimise our operations.

"The hard work doesn’t end here though, and we’ll continue to drive sustainability across the company to ensure we continue to lead from the front in delivering a greener UK moving forward."

Following an initial £350,000 investment into a new state-of-the-art training centre and programme in November 2022, the company expanded its facility in September last year to increase capacity for new heat pump installers, which has so far seen more than 650 installers provided with in-depth knowledge.

Meanwhile, the company expanded its operations into the Irish market in February this year with a view to delivering renewable heating technologies and driving greener homes across the country.
