GTMA Members Midas Pattern Company Ltd showcase their facilities and commitment to ‘Carbon Net Zero’

Our CEO, Alan Arthur, was delighted to be invited to Midas Pattern Company Ltd recently to see the significant investment in new machinery and ongoing measures they have undertaken as a certified Carbon Net Zero business.

Having made the pledge to become Carbon Net Zero in the middle of 2019, Midas Pattern Co Ltd achieved Process Carbon Net Zero by June 2020. Taking just six more months to become PAS 2060 Scope 1, 2 and 3 Carbon Net Zero as certified by NQA.

Since 1st January 2021 all Midas Pattern Co products, including their PU mouldings, MRIM & FASTrim tooling, foundry pattern equipment, and engineering models have been delivered completely carbon neutral.

Alan Rance, Managing Director, Midas Pattern Co Ltd said: ‘’On our journey to Carbon Net Zero one of the easiest wins from a carbon reduction perspective was the transition to truly green electricity and the procurement of 100% BioGas. Both made a huge indent into our carbon footprint and ultimately led to a decision to cover both of our factory rooves with 650 solar panels, that’s 187,000Kwh p.a. of totally green electricity, or around 39% of our annual power consumption.’’

In addition to 100% green electricity and BioGas, Midas also has 100% LED lighting, 100% recyclable packaging, zero single use plastics and zero landfill. They have also entered into a five-year partnership with a local woodland trust, The Forest of Marston Vale, to support a forestation program that includes the purchase of pending issuing units (PIUs) and the planting of 500 trees a year.

The company can be truly proud of their #MidasGreenInitiative in which they hope to inspire others to embark on their own journey to Carbon Net Zero.

Alan Arthur, CEO, GTMA commented ‘’A Highly impressive list of statistics to support their complete commitment to sustainability, and we, as an association are very pleased to see this pledge to Carbon Net Zero being carried out and maintained by one of our valued GTMA members.’’
