Ixpo.com Lead the Field with Carbon Neutral Display Solutions

Pioneering Doncaster based business ixpo.com has become one of the very first companies in their industry to be totally carbon neutral.

Doncaster, United Kingdom, January 09, 2010 --(PR.com)-- The company, who manufacture and supply a range of display solutions including pavement signs, poster frames and banner stands, were established in 2009 in direct response to the growing global demand from consumers for environmentally friendly products.

Ixpo.com have audited their entire production process to determine how much carbon is produced throughout their production process – including both their own and their suppliers' manufacturing processes, and in the transportation of their products. Wherever possible they have reduced their carbon production, and any carbon they do produce is counterbalanced through various carbon offset projects.

Production director James Edwards said of the company and their ethos: “Everybody knows about global warming and the catastrophic affect it could have on our planet. Carbon, in particular carbon dioxide, contributes about two thirds of the total human contribution towards the warming effect. This is why it is absolutely vital that industries take responsibility now to try and cut their carbon footprint. I believe we are the first company in our particular industry to go 100% carbon neutral and I for one hope that others will now follow ixpo.com's lead and reduce or offset their carbon production.”

As well as being a carbon neutral company, ixpo.com also invest in new greener technology. For example, their new state of the art LED edge-lit light boxes utilise energy saving LEDs, compared to the more traditional fluorescent tubes used in older style light boxes. This new technology uses up to 33% less energy than the older fluorescent tube light boxes. Not only that, but they also provide up to 100,000 hours of illumination, compared to 18,000 hours from the older style boxes – meaning less bulb changing and ultimately less waste going to land-fill.
