Head of sustainability at Blanco takes delivery of bio power car

17 Jan 2007
Personal commitment comes with the job for Blanco’s Sustainability guru Dr Chris Moon, and last month saw him take delivery of a new car from Swedish manufacturer SAAB, which runs on ‘bio power’, in this case bioethanol. The car company claims that the new SAAB 9-5 produces 70% less CO2 than a standard model. Blanco UK appointed Dr Moon last year to overhaul the company’s internal processes with a view to working towards more sustainable office practices. A number of new procedures at the company’s North London HQ are now in place. BLANCO already offers a number of ‘greener’ options in their product range, including water saving taps, waste sorting systems and a wide range of recyclable stainless steel sinks, which themselves incorporate a high percentage of recycled material.
