Fortress goes carbon neutral

Fortress are trying to reduce the impact they have on the planet. As part of that journey, the team have already done many things including:

  • Putting Solar panels on our roof
  • Ship more on boats and less in Planes
  • Turning off machines at night
  • Putting in continuous improvement to reduce the air leaking on their compressed air lines to reduce power consumption
  • Cycle to work schemes

They are also continuing to try and improve our impact with the following projects:

  • Use recycled aluminum for more parts
  • Reduce the weight of parts to reduce carbon impact from logistics
  • Manufacture more locally, Fortress have 4 sites globally and are looking to open more, further reducing logistic impact
  • Find other sources of power for when the sun doesn’t shine in Wolverhampton

These are big projects and can take years to implement. So, to have an impact right away Fortress have signed up to have their carbon impact assessed every year and then offset that through schemes such as tree planting. Presently, this makes Fortress officially carbon neutral, but they want to be a net positive contributor going forward with the previously mentioned projects.
