OUR ZERO CARBON FOOTPRINT JOURNEY
“We will plant a tree for every machine hired or sold in 2022”
golfhire.ie have partnered with hometree.ie to help us on Our Zero carbon footprint journey.
In 2020 We completed a survey of our business to measure of our carbon footprint. This gave use something to work with and we set about doing what we could to reduce our carbon emissions and be more eco -friendly. We were already recycling all our waste paper /steel / oil filters etc. but we had a waste oil heater so that was first to go. We then set about harvesting rain water from the roof into a huge tank which now supplies 100% of the water we use in our wash bay (Left)
Other stuff we have done
* Replaced one diesel vehicle with an EV
* Purchased 3 Acres of Woodland to begin the Carbon offsetting process
* Purchased a further 10 Acres of farmland to rewild, plant trees / wild flowers etc
* Reduced our Air miles ( we can thank Corona virus for that!!)
* I have started cycling to work a bit more also but the lads will say that’s because I’m a miserable git!!
In 2022 we plan to…..
* Plant 200 trees – one for every machine on our hire fleet (and a few spares!)
* Replace all our workshop lighting with LED
* As we are leasing the workshop solar panels are not an option but we are planning to move to a electric supplier using 100% renewable energy
There is still so much we can do but we wanted to make a start!
