He was responsible for managing several other projects under the 100% Green initiative, including the company’s £1.5 million Water Recovery Plant project, which enables 70% reuse of Wyke Farms’ factory waste water (saving approximately 91 million litres of water a year), refrigeration temperature control and savings; heat recovery on air compressor stations and upgrading all lighting to LED.
