Morelli First Bodyshop Distributor to Achieve Carbon Neutrality

Morelli Group are delighted to announce that we have achieved carbon neutrality across their branch locations including Slim’s Detailing, our online detailing chemicals and associated products website. This has been achieved in accordance with PAS2060 and has been reached with the help of ECA Energy, a twenty-year partner for Morelli having worked on our energy consumption and purchasing since 2000.

We at Morelli are committed to reducing our carbon footprint and have previously implemented initiatives such as LED lighting and zone-controlled, on-off switching, 100% green electricity purchasing and introducing EV and hybrid vehicles to our fleet.

Achieving carbon neutrality further demonstrates this commitment to our customers and our supply chain.

ECA calculated the carbon footprint for Morelli across all branches, creating and implementing a comprehensive carbon management plan, investing in verified carbon offsetting programs. The introduction of the carbon management plan will see the group committing to reducing their emissions to agreed targets as set out in the plan year on year moving forward.

Rob Cohen, Financial Director for Morelli, said:

“Our partnership with ECA on our energy consumption meant that as soon as they started working with our customers on carbon neutral projects, we started discussions about how we could start our journey towards PAS2060. There is much more that we can do but with the help of ECA we will continue to reduce our emissions and offset any outstanding emissions. This process has fundamentally changed the way we look at our business. We need to transform how we buy, move, and sell our products to customers and change the future shape of our business.”

Steve Silverwood, Managing Director of ECA Business Energy, said:

“Morelli have always demonstrated their commitment to the environment throughout our 20 years working alongside them.  By formalising this commitment, they will be actively reducing their emissions year on year as well as offsetting any outstanding emissions. We look forward to helping them on their ongoing environmental journey.”
