Bristan Group details its sustainability ambitions in new report

Bristan Group, which is the parent company of the Bristan and Heritage Bathrooms brands, has released its first Environmental, Social and Governance report outlining its ongoing commitments to a series of sustainability initiatives.  

The group plans to reduce its carbon footprint, maintain its status as a zero-to-landfill company, and decrease the level of water usage across the UK.  

In-line with its commitments to reducing water usage and the waste of water, Bristan Group is highlighting its portfolio of energy and water-saving products. This includes pre-fitted flow emitters to manage the flow of water, infrared taps that automatically turn off when not in use, and eco-start technology, which reduces boiler usage when using taps. In addition, 90% of the water used during endurance testing and development of Bristan Group’s water-efficient products is recycled through its UKAS-accredited lab. 

As a zero-to-landfill company, Bristan Group also has measures in place to ensure the 295 tonnes of waste produced each year are recycled, reused or repurposed. In addition, its operations centre is due to have solar panels installed at its head office in Tamworth, Staffordshire, which is expected to generate 600kw/hour of electricity to support business operations, equating to a CO2 saving of 143,003 kgs per annum. 

Bristan Group’s ambitions form part of a wider focus on sustainability across Masco Corporation, of which the group is part. Keith Allman, president and CEO at Masco, said: “We believe in and continuously strive to deliver better living possibilities — for our homes, our environment and our community. Motivated by the prospect of a better world, we strive to maintain high standards of excellence, accountability and leadership.”
