Swire Energy Services partners with Wood Recyclability LTD

Posted 29 Jun 2021

Swire Energy Services has been in business since 1979. Our business has stood the test of time because we have always looked ahead and made decisions based on long term sustainability.

SES UK are making significant endeavours to ensure we achieve our global sustainability ambitions, this year SES have partnered with social enterprise Wood Recyclability Ltd to ensure all wood from our Altens East operational facility is re-used. Wood Recyclability provide practical work experience for people with additional support needs through working with waste wood. Whether it’s turning waste wood into a variety of products including garden furniture, nest boxes, bird tables and other wildlife products; selling wood to joiners; or converting wood into chipping for use in chipboard and MDF, the Wood Recyclability team have prevented over 30,000 tons of waste wood from going to landfill.

We’re determined to reduce our waste to zero. As such, we’re incredibly proud of our developing commitment to not only recycle our waste, but to re-use it towards productive causes, it forms part of one of SES’ key sustainability aims: Creating a circular economy by turning today’s waste into a resource for tomorrow. We’re also looking forward to the impact this project will have in the community of Aberdeen, striving for another of our key sustainability aims: To bring value to the communities in the regions we operate. In both cases the initiative is a demonstrations of SES making meaningful steps towards a better future.

Commenting on the initiative, Andy Moig, Group Sustainability Manager at Swire Energy Services said “We are delighted to be partnering with Wood Recyclability, it is a fantastic enterprise that delivers invaluable community support while driving towards environmental sustainability.”

Swire Energy Services are committed to achieving carbon neutrality by 2030. We recognise the world needs to act swiftly and decisively to reduce carbon emissions to mitigate damaging climate change and are committed to supporting this through progressive decarbonisation. The SES Sustainable Development strategy aligns with the Swire group’s SwireTHRIVE strategic framework, focussing on driving sustainability of climate, communities, people, water and waste.

In no uncertain terms, Swire Energy Services is committed to Net Zero by 2030.
