Nine Zero shares commitment to reducing carbon footprint

Nine Zero Timber Windows and Doors

Nine Zero Timber Windows and Doors has set out its commitment to reducing carbon emissions, by detailing to customers the eco-centric decisions and practices it has in place.

Nine Zero manufactures and supplies FSC-certified timber windows and doors. The company revealed three day-to-day processes that demonstrate its sustainability goals of recycling timber waste, providing renewable energy to local homes, and selecting an eco-responsible energy supplier.

The company’s products are made in the UK, and an intrinsic part of the manufacturing process is ensuring all waste produced is appropriately reused, a statement said. Partnering with farms local to its Cornwall workshop, Nine Zero said it supplies timber waste for animal bedding and composting, reducing landfill contributions and supporting the agricultural community.

Nine Zero has converted the energy generated from recyclable materials into renewable energy, the company supplies power to local homes, reducing the UK’s reliance on fossil fuels. Nine Zero has also chosen to partner with green energy supplier, Pozitive Energy.

Steve Winscott, company director at Nine Zero, said: “It’s reassuring to see the government setting out a clear roadmap to increase timber supply, which is so needed to reach our sustainability goals, both in construction and globally.

“We have always taken a proactive approach to reducing our carbon footprint at Nine Zero, and I think it’s important that manufacturers look at their own processes to see how they can drive this down. It may feel like a ‘small act’ here and there, but these small acts, when multiplied by millions, will lead to significant change.”
