Hatfield, UK - Mitsubishi Electric has launched a new Committed Carbon Reduction Partner (CCRP) Accreditation to support contractors in reducing their carbon emissions, winning new business and differentiating themselves from competitors.
With the UK firmly set on reaching net zero carbon emissions by 2050, every business should be reducing their carbon footprint across their operations. This move has created increasing demand for more sustainable suppliers across the industry, and if contractors take action now to make operations more sustainable, they will be well-positioned to win new business today and into the future.
The new CCRP accreditation will help installer Partners prepare for net zero by formally recognising their efforts to reduce carbon emissions across their business. This will allow Partners to differentiate themselves from their competitors by demonstrating their commitment to environmental leadership and responsibility.
Accredited Partners will receive a marketing toolkit to help promote this new status including a certificate, CCRP logo and listing as an accredited Partner on Mitsubishi Electric’s website. This will allow Partners to showcase their environmental credentials and meet growing demand from suppliers during tender and specification processes. Successful applicants will also develop the skills, knowledge and experience needed to devise effective carbon reduction strategies, enabling them to stand out within an increasingly sustainability-conscious marketplace.
Adam Morse, Managing Director at Sustain Homes said: “From the vehicles we drive through to how we tender for business, the road to net zero is already having an impact on every area of our business. A big part of this challenge is navigating the white noise around sustainability, and focusing on what we can, and need to deliver now to prepare for the future. I’m confident that the Committed Carbon Reduction Partner Accreditation will support us in decarbonising our organisation and promote our efforts, as we work towards reaching this goal.”
The accreditation is open to applications from all existing members of Mitsubishi Electric’s Partner Programme. In order to become a Committed Carbon Reduction Partner, Partners will need to fulfil a range of criteria including having a carbon reduction plan in place, an established pledge for achieving net zero and a specific training standard.
Oliver Collins, Channel Marketing Manager for Contractors at Mitsubishi Electric said: “We are proud to be launching the Committed Carbon Reduction Partner Accreditation which will equip Partners with the credentials needed to win business in an increasingly environmentally conscious world. We firmly believe that by working together, we can also make a lasting and positive impact on the wider construction industry.”
"Improving collaboration across supply chains will be essential to the delivery of carbon reduction goals," said BESA CEO David Frise. "This scheme is, therefore, a welcome way for professionals with a shared vision to work together, including many specialist contractors. Improving professional standards and broadening our skills base will also be crucial to reducing the carbon impact of the built environment.”
Mitsubishi Electric invites all partners to embark on this journey towards net zero. To get involved, partners can get in touch with their Account Manager or the Partner Programme Team - Partner@meuk.mee.com
