For Greenvale AP, the UK's leading supplier of fresh potatoes, environmental issues are at the very heart of the business, and earlier this month they were formally recognised for their efforts when they were awarded the Fenland Enterprise Business Green Award for their Floods Ferry site in Cambridgeshire.

 

Environmental Manager Jessica Cranthorne said: "We are delighted to have received this award. The environmental success we have achieved at our Cambridgeshire site has been a huge team effort. Although particular praise needs to go to Ray Grint (Site Services) for his dedication to improving recycling across the site, and Adrian Dickson (Engineering Manager) for his work in rolling out high tech LED lighting".

This is all part of Greenvale AP's Green15 Environmental Strategy which is aimed at reducing carbon emissions by 20%, reducing water use by 50% and eliminating landfill waste, all by 2015. The company is implementing a range of schemes, from improving energy efficiency to investigating renewable energy options. Currently, they have completely eliminated landfill waste at their Cambridgeshire site, as well as reducing their landfill waste to just 2% at the Market Drayton site. Greenvale AP have also reduced water use by 23% and carbon emissions by 18% across all sites, since 2009.

The installation of LED lighting from UK company Low Energy Designs has seen a 65% reduction in energy use at the Cambridgeshire site. There has also been a secondary benefit of better visibility in the factory which has both improved safety conditions for the workers and made potato grading easier, therefore providing a higher quality product for customers.

Another exciting partnership is with Wind Direct, with whom Greenvale have made an application for planning permission on their Cambridgeshire site for wind turbines which would provide approximately 40% of the site's electricity.

Previously, Greenvale AP won Best Carbon Reduction Strategy at the Tesco Greening Our Supply Chain Awards for their group wide Green15 initiative.
