Quensh supports a greener future for global Bundy group

Donna Hutchison Bundy

We are delighted to have supported a global project with Bundy Refrigeration to help reduce its environmental impact.

Bundy is a leading refrigeration group who approached us to conduct a worldwide audit of its operations as part of its ongoing commitment to reducing its carbon footprint. Our specialist team completed an extensive six-month analysis of Bundy’s activities in conjunction with their dedicated global team, Bundy Green.

Our analysis called upon personnel at every Bundy facility to challenge energy and water usage, waste, and emissions. The information gathered formed part of the CDP disclosure report to meet customer demands and forthcoming regulations for environmental performance.

This latest project with Bundy has showcased our unique suite of services to support businesses to manage their Environmental, Social and Governance (ESG) compliance. This bespoke service runs alongside our existing HSEQ consultancy to connect with existing management systems to strengthen clients’ future sustainability targets.

Our Director and Shareholder, Donna Hutchison, commented on the project:

“The audit undertaken by Bundy was extremely ambitious as it involved five different countries and six different locations. Each Bundy plant conducted a thorough analysis of its energy and water usage, and it was fascinating to see how much progress had already been made in order to reduce consumption.

“In Brazil, water is being recycled, and this is an activity which will be replicated across other Bundy plants. Furthermore, the company has already began an impressive programme to develop new products which will reduce energy usage. New wing tube technology developed by Bundy is expected to significantly reduce energy consumption in domestic appliances.”

Chris McGeehan, CEO for Bundy, added:

“As a large company we are committed to playing our part in protecting our planet. There are 1.5 billion domestic refrigerators and freezers in operation and this is forecast to rise. Commercial refrigeration accounts for 90 million units worldwide.

“Refrigeration production involves large-scale manufacturing and as such it is important that we take stock of our energy consumption and make every effort to reduce it where we can. The CDP disclosure report is an important step towards doing that and I am delighted that the whole team has actively supported these goals and works every day to identify areas of improvement.”
