Spotlight Target Area: Energy
Carleton Cakes are proud members of Origin Green and ensure that production is
carried out in the most efficient and environmentally friendly way possible.
Over the course of its five year sustainability plan (2018-2022), Carleton Cakes
targeted a 10% reduction in energy usage per unit of output. Over the year 2020, the
company performed particularly well in this area and is now 16% ahead of target over
its 2017 baseline. This performance has been driven by the implementation of a series
of initiatives, including: the installation of timers on radiators; improved staff training
to ensure all electrics are switched off when not in use; a comprehensive review of
existing machinery; along with the purchasing of new equipment to replace outdated
and inefficient machinery models.
As well as the company’s strong performance in the energy area, Carleton Cakes also
demonstrated an exemplary performance within the area of community engagement.
