McCormick’s UK manufacturing site aims for net zero carbon

26 May 2021

Flavour producer, McCormick & Company, has announced that its new UK manufacturing site in Peterborough is on track to become its first net zero carbon building.  

The project is using the UK Green Building Council (UKGBC) Net Zero Carbon Buildings Framework to help deliver Net Zero Carbon in both construction and operations, the highest level of commitment to the framework.
Operationally the site has been designed to achieve Net Zero in operations and to follow sustainability best practice. The site’s operational electricity supply will come from a blend of renewable sources – wind, solar, water, thermal and anaerobic digestion. The facility will reduce water use through the installation of trigger controls at hose points, water monitoring and measurement tools, and an air-line cleaning system. Other net zero features include refrigeration to reduce energy loss, solar panels, and energy-efficient steam generators.
Chris Jinks, president EMEA, said: “We are delighted that our Peterborough facility is on track to become a Net Zero Carbon Building and I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our colleagues and partners who have worked tirelessly to get us to this point.  
“While acknowledging there is still much work to do to achieve our Net Zero ambitions at Peterborough, we are pleased with the progress we are making. 
“This marks an important milestone in our sustainability journey. Our customers and consumers have been at the heart of our decision-making and we look forward to working with others to explore more ways to make a positive contribution to the world around us and reduce our reliance on the planet’s natural resources.”
