Offsetting secures Billington Structures ‘carbon neutral’ certificate

Billington supplied steelwork for a new £210m waste incinerator at Grangemouth in Scotland

Billington Structures gaining carbon neutral certification from Carbon Neutral Britain follows a switch to green fuels as well as an undisclosed spend on offsetting schemes.

Billington has offset 1,770 tonnes of CO₂e emissions via payments to the Woodland Fund portfolio of carbon offsetting projects. 

Since May 2023 Billington Structures has used electricity procured from 100% green energy with a REGO accredited 0% emissions factor.  Its vehicle fleet is increasingly electric, reducing carbon emissions by approximately 15% a year, and further planned reduction activities include the introduction of hydrotreated vegetable oil as a biofuel across factories and site-based activities. 

Billington chief executive Mark Smith said: “Billington believes that operating in a sustainable and responsible manner is key to the growth and success of the group.  As part of this, Billington is therefore committed to achieving carbon neutrality across all of its businesses as soon as possible, together with minimising the environmental impact of its activities.  We are therefore delighted that our largest business, Billington Structures, has now been certified as carbon neutral and we intend that our other businesses will be certified as such as soon as practical.”

NuGen Properties built an extension to the rear of my property, replacing the old conservatory. I am so pleased I chose this company. From the initial quotation, through the build and after they were professional, polite & well mannered. They kept the site tidy throughout the build and kept me informed of each stage as it happened. The work was finished to a good standard and I have had nothing but compliments on their work. I am already planning for them to come back and do some more work for me in a few months. I would 100% recommend them.
