Committing to Carbon Neutrality
AGM Services have always had a commitment to customer service, quality and the environment throughout 28 years of servicing Spray Booths across the UK motor repair industry.
AGM are now further enhancing that reputation by committing to becoming carbon neutral in the Summer of 2021 and aim to be the first company in the Spray Booth service sector to achieve this accolade.
Partnering with energy and carbon specialists – ECA Business Energy, AGM will be working towards the PAS2060 standard for carbon neutrality.
This involves measuring the company’s carbon footprint across all 3 scopes, implementing a detailed carbon management plan and offsetting emissions using high quality carbon credits.
Based in Heywood, Lancashire, with a network of 15 engineering service teams located strategically throughout the UK, the company has always had the mindset to combine environment considerations with providing a top class service to its customers, leading with preventative maintenance policies to avoid costly downtime.
AGM already have a number of upgrade features to complement the service packages that can be tailored to suit customer requirements, such as LED lighting and it’s unique environmentally friendly award nominated Spray Booth extract filter, PolyMat EX.
Why it’s important
Sales Director at AGM Services, Wesley Young, said “This is an incredibly exciting and important project, we’re very grateful to Steve and his team at ECA for the guidance they’re providing. We see PAS2060 as “Win-Win-Win”, as well as both the bodyshop and AGM benefitting from the changes implemented, the environment and society as a whole benefits. In addition to the PAS2060 standard we’re also working on a green Spray Booth service package specifically aimed at cutting carbon emissions for bodyshop customers that will help them on their own journey to net zero whenever they’re ready to make that step”
Steve Silverwood – MD, ECA Business Energy goes on to say, “in our short time working with Wesley and the team at AGM, it is clear they have a passion for doing the right thing, for their teams, their customers, supply chain and the environment. They have a short, medium and long term strategy around how they become not only a carbon neutral organisation but a net zero one. We look forward to working with them to help them reach their sustainability goals over the coming months and years.”
