There has been an ever-increasing focus on environmental issues over the years. Across the globe, people have switched the food they eat, where they shop and how they travel to reduce their global impact. On a larger scale, businesses have been reviewing their energy consumption and day-to-day operations in a conscious effort to reduce their carbon footprint. Technologies such as CHP, solar power, wind and other renewable power solutions have been on the radar for years.
CHP reducing carbon emissions
Shenton Group has helped countless organisations to reduce their carbon emissions, become more energy-efficient and reduce their energy costs by utilising CHP. Cogeneration can reduce carbon emissions by as much as 30% compared to conventional generation via a boiler and electricity purchased directly from the National Grid.
Over the past 13 years, we have been helping the following industries in their efforts to become ‘Green’ and more energy efficient by switching to CHP:
- Data centres
- Farming & Agriculture
- Food & drink manufacture
- Sewage and wastewater treatment facilities
- Commercial buildings
- District Heating
- Hospitality & Leisure

What is Shenton Group doing to offset their carbon footprint and protect the planet?
In the bid to become more sustainable and with the deadline to ban the sale of combustion engine vehicles to 2030, Shenton Group is in the process of reviewing our fleet and moving across to electric, with charging points being installed at our offices.
Shenton Group firmly believes that if we all contribute something towards our environment, no matter how small, in the long run, it makes a huge difference. Just some of the small changes that Shenton Group has made include opting for ‘no bag’ deliveries from supermarkets; rigorous measures to dispose of waste ethically, recycling and reducing our waste as a whole, only using biodegradable bin bags, and sourcing FSC-certified recycled stationery from sustainable sources. These may seem like small changes, but in a year, and with the amount of waste that companies worldwide create, these small and easy changes make a big difference.
