With the aim of highlighting the issues of water and energy saving and the need to move towards a more sustainable future, Triton Showers has pledged to achieve carbon net zero by 2025 – a year that will mark the company’s 50th anniversary year.
The pledge forms part of the UK manufacturer’s wider commitment to ‘move the dial’ on sustainability, as the company strives to reduce its impact on the natural environment. With domestic water and energy wastage an increasingly important issue, alongside electricity coming to the fore as a sustainable energy source for the future, Triton believes it is well placed to make a difference.
MD David Tutton explains: “Heating water via electricity has long been the most efficient method in the home, and our expertise in electric showering means that we are well placed to support the market. It is the past, but also very much the future of showers, and there has never been a more critical moment than right now to improve help users improve their consumption habits.
“While we want to continue to ensure our customers have access to high performance showers, our role is to help them do so with a cleaner conscience. This was part of the reason behind the development of our water and energy savings calculator, which is a tool to highlight where quick wins can be made. A great deal of our research and development programme also concentrates on making all our products as efficient as possible, including making spare parts widely available to encourage repairs over replacement.”
Becoming net zero in 2025 will be the culmination of an ongoing journey for Triton, which has already undertaken a number of other sustainability focused initiatives. For example, the business has been zero-to-landfill since 2015, and is currently working with the Carbon Trust to gain carbon neutral certification in 2022.
“Sustainability is an issue being talked about across so many industries,” adds Tutton, “and it is vital that everyone in the supply chain from manufacturers through to housebuilders, on to installers and consumers themselves, takes action to help protect the natural world around us. At Triton, we are absolutely aware of the part we have to play, particularly as electric showers are so key to the UK’s long-term goals. Through internal enterprises, collaboration with the Carbon Trust, and by demonstrating our commitment via a clear roadmap towards net zero, we are proud to be moving the dial on sustainable water consumption and energy usage.”
