DEBI Corporate Supporter Babcock International Group
Babcock International Group is the UK’s leading engineering support services company, delivering complex and critical support both in the UK and overseas. We manage vital assets within a number of industry sectors including energy, defence, emergency services, transport and education.
Babcock has recently renewed its certification to the Carbon Trust Standard for the fourth consecutive year.
As a global group, Babcock recognises the importance of applying good environmental practices right across the business and ensuring that the highest standards are achieved wherever the Company operates. Locally, at Devonport Royal Dockyard in Plymouth, amongst many other environmental improvement initiatives the company recently undertook a ‘Battle of the Buildings’ challenge to see who could save the most energy over the Christmas period. With 38 buildings taking part, the overall estimated savings for the site, by switching off unnecessary electricity and heating, were 1MW of energy and a reduction in carbon emissions of 470 tonnes. One building on the site achieved an outstanding 86% reduction in energy consumption for the period.
Babcock are delighted to have become a corporate member of Devon Environmental Business Initiative (DEBI) and look forward to sharing best practice with other businesses across Devon to help reduce environmental impact.
