Sustainability isn’t just another buzz word at GH Commercial, it's an objective we take extremely seriously. As a proud Australian and New Zealand manufacturer, GH Commercial seek to source and develop local solutions to this global issue wherever we can.
While still in the early stages of our sustainability journey, we’re proud of our achievements so far, actively working towards reducing our environmental footprint across our local manufacturing facilities and striving to improve our processes under our broad based sustainability vision, Believe in Better.
Under this ideological framework, our Resource Stewardship pillar supports a commitment to the health of the planet and begins with the implementation of measures to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. One such measure is a commitment to solar panels, an initiative that began with the installation of solar panels at the Shiny Drive warehouse in Truganina.
We are delighted to extend this solar investment to our warehouse at Laverton. This centralised storage and distribution facility measures a whopping 24,522 square metres of internal floor space, and includes upper and lower level offices, plus storage capacity for approximately 700,000 metres of carpet.
The facility’s roof design was ideal for an initial installation of 216 solar panels. The 99.36kw system is capable of powering over half the warehouse, generating clean, green energy, and reducing our reliance on non-renewable sources is a win-win, while measurably reducing our overall operating costs.
This investment in reducing Co2 emissions supports our broader Climate Active Carbon Neutral certification, one of the most rigorously applied sustainability recognition programs in the world.
As industry leaders with genuine concern for the future, we recognise that actions speak louder than words. We have a moral responsibility to spearhead change by supporting climate action wherever we can.
