KGK Genix employs over 90 people at four sites in Central London, Hertfordshire, and Essex.
KGK Genix has achieved carbon neutral status, receiving certified status from carbon emission offsetting specialist Carbon Footprint.
KGK Genix, which employs over 90 people at four sites in Central London, Hertfordshire, and Essex, was assessed across the period between 1 April 2020 to 31 March 2021. As a result the company planted 138 trees in an effort to offset 138 tons of CO2e (carbon dioxide equivalent) emissions generated from building energy, company cars, van travel, commuting, public transport and homeworking.
‘We’re really proud to have been granted carbon neutral status, it means a lot to the business, the team and of course our clients,’ commented KGK Genix operations director Graham Pitts. ‘We will continue to make changes to our business and processes to be more sustainable, just like our overall aim to have a number of ‘green’ alternatives for every single material that we currently offer. We really feel that by achieving carbon neutral status we have taken another important step towards a much greener future for our industry.’
KGK Genix has also made what it describes as ‘significant changes’ in its office and machinery areas by changing lights to LED panels along with using LED curing, water-based inks in their print processes, upgrading company cars to complete electric models and reducing movements between premises.
