RAP moves to new low carbon HQ

Mansel CourtRapid Action Packaging (RAP) has bolstered its sustainability credentials following, the move of its headquarters to low carbon offices in Wimbledon, London.

RAP moved in Mansel Court, a 1960s building, which has been transformed into a highly efficient workspace by the Low Carbon Workplace.

The organisation – a partnership between the Carbon Trust, property developers Stanhope and asset manager Columbia Threadneedle Investments – is committed to setting high standards for sustainable offices in the UK. In fact, Mansel Court is one of only eight low carbon workplaces in the UK.

The new building has been upgraded to an Energy Performance Certificate ‘B’ and a BREEAM ‘Excellent’ Rating. As a result, it’s expected to be at least 50% more energy efficient than the company’s previous headquarters.

As part of the move, RAP has signed the Low Carbon Workplace Charter. This signals the company’s commitment to work collaboratively with the Carbon Trust to minimise carbon emissions and work to achieve the Low Carbon Workplace Standard. As part of the Charter, RAP will benefit from ongoing support from the Carbon Trust to help operate the building as sustainably and efficiently as possible. This includes regular performance monitoring and reporting using a comprehensive system of smart energy sub-meters and occupancy sensors.

Commenting on the move, Graham Williams, CEO at RAP says: “RAP is a market leader in the design and production of sustainable food packaging, and we focus on improving environmental responsibility throughout the supply chain. Our move to Mansel Court is therefore a very natural fit for us, in line with our company ethos.”

Bruno Gardner, Managing Director – Low Carbon Workplace at the Carbon Trust, adds: “As a business that is clearly motivated to reduce its energy use and carbon emissions, we are really pleased to have RAP as a tenant in our building. Working towards the Low Carbon Workplace Standard will allow RAP to continuously benchmark and improve its performance, enabling the company to minimise electricity and heating costs, at the same time as demonstrating its environmental responsibility.”

Founded in 1997, RAP is one of the leading food-to-go packaging companies on the market.
