Parnham Group: Investing in clean energy for our future generations

By choosing to harness the energy of the sun to power our facilities, the Parnham Group not only gives back to the community but gives back to the environment.

Adding clean energy sources has a real and measurable impact slowing down the resources used from the planet:

  • Equivalent to Planting 854 Trees Annually: The installation of our solar panels plays a critical role in carbon sequestration, mirroring the natural absorption of carbon dioxide (CO2) by 854 trees every year. This natural process is vital for mitigating the effects of climate change, offering a clear testament to the Parnham Group's dedication to reducing atmospheric CO2 levels.
  • Saving 14,188 Litres of Petrol Per Year: The transition to solar power significantly curtails our dependence on fossil fuels. By avoiding the use of 14,188 litres of petrol annually, our initiative not only lessens the demand for non-renewable energy sources but also contributes to a substantial reduction in greenhouse gas emissions.
  • Avoiding the Burning of 16,125 Kilograms of Coal Per Year: Steering clear of coal, one of the most carbon-intensive sources of energy, underscores our effort to combat air pollution and climate change. This achievement is a key element of our strategy to promote cleaner air and a healthier environment for our community.

Reducing plastic and recycling for the future

Furthermore, this solar installation is just one part of the Parnham Group's comprehensive sustainability strategy. In addition to harnessing renewable energy, the group is actively working towards reducing its environmental impact in other areas. This includes transitioning packaging materials from plastic to recyclable cardboard, selling sustainable FSC-certified furniture, and utilizing recycled paper for advertising printed materials.

"We are thrilled to unveil this landmark solar installation as part of our ongoing efforts to embrace sustainability," said Brett Parnham, Director of the Parnham Group. "At the Parnham Group, we recognize the importance of taking proactive steps towards environmental stewardship, and this solar project represents a significant milestone in our journey towards a greener future."

The Parnham Group invites customers, partners, and the community to join us in our commitment to sustainability. By working together, we can create a more environmentally conscious and sustainable future for all.
