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.

As the results of the National Street Lighting Survey continue to roll in, the Lighting Journal (which will be publishing the results of the survey next year) have released an article discussing the origins of the project and some of the main objectives of the study. The article is by the Institution of Lighting Professional's VP of Highways, Ian Jones, who has worked closely with us on the planning, design and deployment of the nationwide study.
Please click the article to go through to the online edition of the October 2018 Lighting Journal. The article can be found on pages 24 and 25.
We're delighted to have had one of our projects featured in this month's edition of the Lighting Journal. In addition to a Carbon Reduction Technology photograph on the cover, you can read the article on pages 32, 33 and 34. The article details the tremendous and sensitive work done by Cheshire West and Chester Council in successfully marrying efficient new technology into the historical treasure trove of the City of Chester and it's outlying villages.
Although the Journal is packed with great content, the articles on pages 16 and 20 discussing professional development and the changes being implemented by the Engineering Council to CPD are very much worth a read if you're a lighting engineer or manage a team of lighting engineers.

At this year’s ILP Summit, of which we were a proud sponsor, the question on everyone’s lips was ‘Just how far has the UK gone towards converting to LED street lighting?’ and ‘What will the industry look like in a couple of years when we hit our next major milestone in the Paris Agreement?’
As Premier Corporate Members of the Institution of Lighting Professionals (ILP) and via our network of contacts within local authority street lighting, we realised that we were well placed to find the answers to these questions. Earlier this month launched a nationwide survey in collaboration with the ILP, reaching out to every local authority in the UK and focussing on urban street lighting. The main objectives of the study are to determine:
The National Street Lighting Survey aims to provide an accurate quantitative snapshot of the current status of local authority lighting, as well as an informed estimate of what the industry will look like by our next major Paris Agreement milestone in 2020.
Working closely with ILP VP Highways Ian Jones, we are also aiming to assess the ongoing opportunities available to lighting engineers and lighting engineering graduates in local government. This is a critical issue for the ILP and YLP; the study should help to provide a better picture of the current scope of the industry.
We hope to finish compiling responses to the study by December this year and aim to publish our findings in early 2019. The study will be collated into a digital report, which will be made freely available for download. We also hope to present our findings next year at the next ILP Summit.
