Bailey of Bristol, a leading caravan manufacturer in the United Kingdom, has announced switching to a 100% fully renewable energy supply as part of its ongoing commitment to carbon footprint reduction in its operations.

In October this year, the company will specify a wind, hydro, and solar power mix for all three sites that will drastically reduce its carbon emissions, despite being a more expensive option, according to a report.

“Switching to the exclusive use of renewable energy supplies is the next important step in helping us achieve our sustainability and social responsibility goals,” said Bailey of Bristol Managing Director Nick Howard.

“Powering all three of our three sites with electricity generated by either wind, hydro or solar power in future is part of the positive action we want to take to help safeguard the environment for the future.”

The company believes that transferring to renewables is the right step. In the future, it will allow Bailey to report its electricity consumption (Scope 2) as zero carbon under the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) protocol.

This latest development follows the recent announcement that Bailey of Bristol has signed up to the Woodland Trust Woodland Carbon Scheme (WCS), which enables companies to capture greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by planting new native woodland in the UK, that in time will absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere.

Bailey of Bristol’s aim in the future is to become a carbon-neutral business, and these two initiatives are the latest in many changes that the company has made on that journey.
