The first South African company to achieve the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon Van Dyck, will be presenting the full report on the Carbon Trust achievements at Sustainable Brands next week in Cape Town.
This presentation will be showcasing our sustainability credentials that has gave us a commercial advantage in which helped us to differentiate ourselves from the competition and win more business, especially from large corporate. Van Dyck Carpets sought external verification of 20.7% reduction in GHG emissions in 2015. The Carbon Trust successfully certified the company to the Carbon Trust Standard in May 2015. The certification has provided Van Dyck a platform to discuss the companies’ sustainability credentials with confidence having received media attention from; SAFM, United Nations Global Compact, Engineering News, Fin 24, African Design Magazine etc. For Van Dyck this really helps to tell our customers that our achievements are certified by the Carbon Trust, an independent organisation with a global reputation.
