At Lynton, we understand the impact our business operations have on the environment and the responsibility we have to conduct business in as sustainable manner as possible. Through the HIVE initiative, we focus on reducing our carbon footprint, minimising waste and reducing our use of natural resources.
At Lynton, we believe in measuring what matters. Since 2021, we have been diligently tracking our carbon footprint in line with the internationally recognised Greenhouse Gas Protocol. By measuring our emissions across various areas of our operations (scope 1, scope 2 and selected scope 3), we gain valuable insights that help us identify key areas for improvement and take necessary actions to reduce our environmental impact. Although as a medium-sized business we are not required by Government legislation to do so, we now measure and report on our carbon footprint annually.
Lynton achieved carbon neutrality for the first time in 2022 and is committed to to ongoing carbon neutrality in accordance with PAS 2060:2014 (Specification for the Demonstration of Carbon Neutrality). We measure our carbon footprint on an annual basis, identify key areas to target and implement actions to reduce our emissions. As part of our commitment to carbon neutrality we purchase sufficient high quality, third-party verified carbon credits from carbon reduction projects focused on energy efficiency and forest protection to balance our greenhouse gas emissions each year. We carefully select projects which also meet the United Nations’ Sustainable Development Goals and provide benefits to the local communities involved in the projects. We see carbon neutrality as an important first step on our road to net-zero.
At Lynton, we recognise the importance of minimising paper usage as part of our environmental stewardship, especially in an industry that has historically been heavily reliant on paper. We have implemented various initiatives throughout our operations to reduce paper consumption and promote sustainable practices. By leveraging technology and digital solutions, we have significantly reduced our reliance on paper-based processes.
Through our concerted efforts, we have seen a remarkable decline in paper consumption, leading to substantial savings in natural resources and energy. We are proud of the progress we have made and remain committed to continuously improving our processes.
Through HIVE, Lynton is an industry leader in promoting sustainability in aesthetics, and by upholding this commitment we strive to inspire others across the aesthetics industry to take similar actions for a sustainable future.
Expansion of Premises to Facilitate Entry into Export Markets
To facilitate its entry into new export markets, Lynton Lasers Ltd required increased manufacturing space, as well as new demonstration and training facilities. To this end, LEADER Funding was applied for, and won, to support the refurbishment of an adjacent business unit (Unit 9d) as well as the re-arrangement and refurbishment of the existing business unit (Unit 6) on Holmes Chapel Business Park.
