The UK soft tissue market is worth £1.6bn with private label products comprising circa 50%.
Accrol is the leading supplier to the private label market, producing toilet roll, kitchen roll and facial tissue products for most of the UK’s major grocery retailers.
With the private label market growing at over 8% year on year, it is important for Accrol to keep ahead of the game as far as their products, processes and supply chain are concerned. On top of this, they need to ensure they are meeting the ever growing legislative and environment challenges that UK businesses are facing.
Energy and sustainability are a now a much bigger part of these challenges for businesses like Accrol. Reporting on energy performance and carbon emissions is now a legal requirement with Streamlined Energy and Carbon Reporting (SECR) and Energy Savings Opportunity Scheme (ESOS)
SECR produced ontime and to perfection
As a qualifying company, Accrol needed to produce a SECR report at short notice in order to publish their financial report. Brownlow's Sustainability Team came to the rescue, gathering the required energy consumption data through their online energy systems, only troubling Accrol for transport and bespoke data that they held themselves.
The SECR report for the entire Accrol group consisting of five sites was assembled within 3weeks of instruction. The report was reviewed and only minor wording changes were made to the draft documentation before being added to the Group's annual financial report.
The SECR report was passed to Price Waterhouse Coopers (PWC) for audit purposes. Accrol were able to publish their financial reporting to the city on time and before the deadline set.
