Calor has today published its online 2013 Sustainability Progress Report.  Click here to see full report.

After publishing its Sustainability Review in 2011, Calor has been working towards ambitious targets across their 5 sustainability areas - Community, Innovation, Environment, Workplace and Marketplace.  The 2011 Review set out annual milestones with measurable KPIs each year to 2015, to achieve continued and measurable improvement within three years.

Calor’s 2013 Progress Report describes the projects the company implemented to try to achieve their targets, as well as new programmes that were developed during the year to enhance their sustainable development proposition and achieve their vision of becoming the Sustainable Energy Company of Choice for Rural Britain.

Calor’s key achievements in 2013

  • 9.4% carbon footprint reduction
  • 12% less waste going to landfill
  • 4.6% fleet size reduction
  • 80% score in the 2014 Business in the Community Corporate Responsibility index
  • 84% score in Calor’s employee engagement survey (improved from 74% in 2010)
  • £62,858 raised for the Make-A-Wish Foundation – their corporate charity partner 426 employees committed to Save A Tonne of carbon
  • Launch of Calor’s Home Energy Check

The key highlight for 2013 was the 9.4% reduction in their carbon footprint. From their 2012 Sustainability Progress Report it was clear that a meaningful reduction in their carbon footprint could only come from substantial financial and resource investment. This was because during the last six years, their carbon footprint remained remarkably constant. At the end of 2013, Calor also installed 551 solar panels across three of their sites, which will also reduce their annual carbon footprint by an estimated 63 tones.
