The philosophy of Dams for over 50 years has been to achieve affordable, consistent growth using our expertise in product innovation, depth of product range, coupled with continual investment in manufacturing excellence with unrivalled logistics. In order to succeed, we believe that we must meet high standards of corporate behaviour towards all the people we work with, the community that we involve ourselves in, and on the environment which we impact.
Netzero carbon is linked to the Paris Agreement which aims to limit the rise in global temperatures below 1.5°C. To meet this target, global carbon emissions will need to reach net zero by 2050. At Dams we’re already doing many things to minimise our carbon footprint such as running biomass burners to heat the sites, our Ecogate dust & fume collection system, switching to greener renewable electricity, and recycling waste streams. However we’re committed to doing a lot more and don’t plan on hanging around until 2050 to do it!
Dams are fully committed to become Netzero carbon as quickly as possible. During 2021 we partnered with Businesswise Solutions to install monitoring devices across the business to gather data and establish our true carbon footprint. All this data has now come back and we have a roadmap of initiatives to help offset the energy we do need to run our business.
As you can see from the roadmap, Dams are on track to achieve Netzero carbon status by 2035 – well in advance of global government targets.
