In November last year we were delighted to receive a Lux Award for Industrial and Transport Lighting Project of the Year, in conjunction with Volvo CE, Motherwell and enModus Smart Building Solutions.
The Lighting Journal has, this month, published the full story of this game-changing project, including more detail on the actual financial and carbon savings achieved via the lighting upgrade:

Carbon Reduction Technology (CRT) has achieved Accredited Supplier status with the Carbon Trust. Accreditation comes with a listing on the Carbon Trust's Green Business Directory.
The Carbon Trust aims to provide independent evaluation and validation, setting a reliable quality standard. Applicants are thoroughly vetted against a set of detailed and stringent criteria, covering essential business practices and processes.
The Carbon Trust has also previously carried out an incubation case study featuring one of CRT's early industrial customers - a Volvo Construction Equipment facility (previously Terex Trucks) in Motherwell, Scotland. Read more here.
We are pleased to announce success at the Lux Awards 2018, winning the Industrial and Transport Lighting Project of the Year category with a joint entry submitted by Carbon Reduction Technology, enModus and Volvo.
The project, also the subject of a Carbon Trust case study, covers the upgrade of a Volvo construction equipment site in Motherwell Scotland to Smart Connected Lighting. The facility now has approximately 950 CRT high efficiency luminaires installed with ambient light and occupancy sensors, networked into a remote control and reporting system.
The new lighting system is delivering an average energy saving of approximately 84%, which equates to a huge CO2 and financial savings for the facility every month.
Paul Hudson, Operations Director at Volvo comments: “This project is testament to the forward-thinking employees within of our business. With the smart connected lighting solution in place, we are another few steps closer to reaching our goal of becoming a carbon neutral site.”
Alan Robson, Sales Director at Carbon Reduction Technology comments: "When a project like this picks up an award it really helps to highlight what a massive impact a lighting upgrade can have on a business - both financially and environmentally. Volvo, Motherwell, absolutely deserve the recognition for the amazing strides they are making towards becoming carbon neutral."
Carbon Reduction Technology are pleased to announce our graduation to Gold with the Supply Chain Sustainability School [SCSS].
CRT joined the SCSS earlier this year in June and quickly appointed a sustainability team to undertake training and evaluate the opportunities for sustainability improvement within our supply chain.
The SCSS awarded Gold level recognition following an extensive redesign of our product range to dramatically increase the sustainability of our supply chain before products reach the point of sale. In addition, following a number of sustainability assessments and training modules, the SCSS conducted an interview with our sustainability team and produced a case study about our sustainability strategy - making Carbon Reduction Technology one of only six studies published by the school this year.
