New Euramax hire to drive net zero goal

As part of a steadfast commitment to becoming carbon neutral by 2050, leading uPVC manufacturer Euramax Solutions has welcomed a new Carbon Reduction Analyst to its team.

And as a geography scholar at Sheffield Hallam University, Matthew Williams is perfectly set up for the role, which will see him planning, designing and developing carbon roadmaps for the Barnsley-based company as well as for its customers in the off-site and modular construction, DIY and home improvement sectors.

“I’m very much looking forward to understanding Euramax’s full carbon footprint, and developing effective strategies for setting and achieving ambitious carbon reduction targets,” says Matthew.

“A carbon reduction strategy draws the pathway to achieving net zero targets, and goes hand in hand with Euramax’s sustainability strategy, something which has always been paramount to the company.”

Matthew’s appointment is part of a wider scheme by Euramax’s parent company Modular Group Investments (MGI) to make a positive and sustainable contribution in all areas of the modular construction sector.

MGI CEO Nick Cowley explains: “In 2019, the UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws to end its contribution to global warming by 2050, a target requiring the country to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero in less than 30 years.

“As a company, our environmental objective is for the entire group to be carbon neutral long before the government’s carbon reduction targets of 2050. Bringing Matthew to the team, someone whose sole focus is to develop carbon reduction strategies for the business, is a huge step in the right direction.

“Matthew is full of enthusiastic ideas for the business, and we’re all very excited to have him on board, and look forward to seeing him excel in his role.”
