Saving David Attenborough

Saving David Attenborough........

Well looking how tatty St David was on looking on the BBC last week, I think trying to save St David might be a lost cause. But Newton has some pretty ambitious goals regarding playing our part in saving what is left of our Planet. So getting Carbon Literate is the first bit.
We sell about 1,100 trailers per year and if you do the maths at between 6 tonnes and 10 tonnes per trailer of alloy and steel we will clearly have a special place in hell when St David meets us at the Pearly Gates and turns his thumb downwards - potentially we are contributing thousands of tonnes of eCO2 per annum. Sorry kids, sorry polar bears.
Anyway like any good journey it starts with a row with the wife - then we have to calculate our emissions produced on site here at Newton's - called SCOPE 1 emissions. On this we are pretty ace - we have some diesel and heating oil emissions to offset. Then we have SCOPE 2 with main energy on site is electricity and we purchase 100 percent green energy. So gold star there. Next Scope 3 - and for that we have to get deep into our suppliers knickers - and that is not pleasant and may take some time - but if you are a supplier or component supplier to us please be on notice - we are coming a rummaging. But when you are buying a trailer please be aware that Newton at least are doing their bit for the Planet...and if you are purchasing from us then we are doing better than the rest. Long live St David...
