Improving our environmental impact

At ADC we want to help reduce environmental impacts. All company cars are either fully electric or hybrid models. 6 charging points have been installed at our head office with more planned in the future to accommodate other staff members when they update their current vehicles.

Many of our staff have already implemented car sharing to reduce the number of cars making the journey to the offices. We have a target to phase out our diesel/petrol fleet by 2027.

 

ADC has a social value impact plan and is currently implementing the Impact ESG Portal where we can record our social impact value, and will support our continued improvement in this area, as will our ISO:14001 accreditation. 

Reducing Our Carbon Footprint At ADC

Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory with Liverpool John Moores University

We are currently working with the LJMU team to identify opportunities for low carbon development which will ultimately bring about economic and environmental benefits to our business and the wider community, LJMU will help us to calculate our current carbon footprint and help to identify areas we can improve. The Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory at LJMU creates innovative low carbon goods, processes and services, developed through collaborative partnerships between local companies in the Liverpool City Region and University researchers, students and academic staff.  See below how the process works, we will be posting updates on our website as the project develops.

Roadmapping

Experts at the LCEI will develop the right low carbon strategy for each individual company by mapping its current practices and future exploitation activities.The nature of the project will dictate if the business will be allocated a research collaborator or student project.

Activities

A bespoke action plan will be developed between the business and the LCEI team. The aim is to use all available resources and technologies to develop an action plan which will assist to increase long term profitability and set the company on the right track to a low carbon future.

Implementation

The action plan will be implemented with the help of the LCEI researchers, students or academic staff. They will assist with every step of the agreed action plan, implementing new technologies, new processes or wider research, as well as applying for funding if necessary.

Low Carbon Eco-Innovatory is a unique partnership between Liverpool John Moores University, University of Liverpool and Lancaster University and part-funded through the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
