On a Journey Towards Carbon Neutrality: Maxwood’s Sustainable Contribution   

The United Kingdom has pledged to achieve net zero emissions by 2050, and the construction industry plays an essential role in this journey. 

 

At Maxwood, we are committed to being a part of this change by providing eco-friendly washroom solutions. We have recently launched a fully carbon-neutral washroom range that aids contractors and clients in their efforts to achieve carbon neutrality.

Choosing More Efficient Materials 

Decarbonising existing building stock is paramount to reducing energy consumption and carbon footprints.  

 

At Maxwood, we recognise this challenge, and we offer solutions to retrofit buildings with more efficient materials. Our expertise ensures that every material choice contributes to lowering carbon emissions while maintaining quality and functionality.  

 

Some of our sustainable efforts include the use of Mivera, the industry’s first solid bamboo commercial washroom cubicle.

Carbon Offsetting 

Carbon offsetting is another crucial aspect of achieving carbon neutrality. At Maxwood, we actively participate in carbon offsetting initiatives, helping to mitigate carbon costs associated with retrofitting projects. By investing in projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions, we support our clients in achieving their sustainability goals while minimising environmental impact.   

 

We are proud to share that we are the first and only commercial washroom manufacturer in the UK with a Fully Carbon Neutral Range. 

 

We are also a certified partner in climate action. Through certified carbon offset projects, we have offset 1,311,000 kg of CO2 and carry on. To produce our carbon-neutral washroom range, we offset carbon through the following carbon offsetting projects:  

 

  • WIND ENERGY - Nashik, India 

  • FOREST PROTECTION - Cujubim, Brazil 

  • OCEAN PROTECTION - Worldwide 

 

Additionally, another measure to prevent the buildup of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere is incinerating all wood-based waste in a computer-controlled biomass boiler at a temperature that prevents harmful carbon emissions.

Energy Efficiencies Through Design 

 

Energy efficiency is at the heart of our operations and washroom design solutions. We incorporate inventive design principles into all our projects, optimising building performance and reducing operational emissions.  

 

We prioritise energy efficiency through our smart design systems, lighting solutions, and passive design strategies to minimise environmental impact and contribute to UK’s net-zero emission commitment by 2050.

Collaborative Approach 

 

At Maxwood, we believe that becoming carbon neutral is only possible through the collaborative efforts of all stakeholders. As contractors, we understand the importance of involving clients and supply chain partners in retrofitting.  

 

That's why we encourage open communication and strive to share best practices with our partners to help them make informed decisions that positively impact the environment.

One Piece of the Puzzle 

 

Even though we play a significant role in assisting clients in achieving carbon neutrality, we understand that we are just one part of the solution. Achieving net zero carbon emissions requires collective action from everyone in the industry.  

 

 

To conclude, at Maxwood, we provide sustainable washroom solutions to help our clients achieve carbon neutrality. We take measures such as selecting efficient materials, carbon offsetting, and energy-efficient designs to be part of the solution towards building carbon neutrality for future generations. We believe that we can achieve this goal by collaborating with our clients and contractors.
