Red CCTV have proudly unveiled their first quarter carbon savings report to celebrate Earth Day.
The Manchester based security specialists saved clients more than 300 tonnes worth of carbon in the first three months of 2021.
Their innovative range of site security CCTV Systems is powered by a unique fuel system which reduces, and in some cases eliminates the need for diesel generators.
The result is a huge reduction in CO2 emissions and carbon footprint for clients working in the UK rail, construction, utility and transportation sectors.
Red CCTV Managing Director Rob Kennedy, said: “We are committed to eliminating harmful CO2 emissions and are driving towards achieving a goal of Net Zero.
“We have been committed to this task for many years, long before Net Zero became a buzz phrases for some.
“Red CCTV proved that actions speak louder than words, by developing innovative new products that actually tackle this, the most serious of issues.
“We introduced the Fast Mast several years ago, the industry’s first solar powered CCTV trailer, and have developed that technology further, with the introduction of the Halo range.
“The Halo CCTV System is unique in a number of ways, firstly that it is modular in design but secondly, that it has a unique power supply.
“The idea of the system being modular means we can install more cameras in a single visit, uses smaller, lighter vehicles to deliver the system to site.
“Our technology means we can access the system remotely to carry out maintenance work, reduce site visits and the power supply reduces, or eliminates the need for diesel generators.
“We have taken the technology even further, introducing a system which is capable of running under its own power in the field for months.
“This is an exciting time for Red CCTV and we are proud of our work in reducing CO2 emissions, and clients carbon footprint.”
Earth Day is celebrating every year by more than 193 countries across the world, joining together more than 1 billion people. More than 40 world leaders will meet to discuss climate change and consider ways to consider clean energy.
This year, three-days of events will new held to highlight the threat of climate change with a series of events planned around a ‘Restore Earth’ theme, underpinned by three main pillars; ‘restoration, mitigation and adaption.’
Campaigners want businesses and individual consumers to considering adopting Earth Day every-day, to truly attempt to reverse the issues of climate change.
“We are all working hard to achieve Net Zero but, it is clear, we all need to do more,” explained Rob Kennedy.
“Our industry has relied on dirty, gas guzzling generators, to power security camera towers for years without realising, or acknoweldging the damage they could be causing.
“We have shown it is possible to make a difference, to inspire change and we hope now others will follow.”
Red CCTV introduced the industry’s first solar powered CCTV trailer and then, with the backing of the Northern Powerhouse Investment Fund, went onto create the game changing Halo Eco Smart CCTV System.
The Halo Eco Smart CCTV System are a range of products, modular in nature and powered by a unique fuel supply which reduced, and in the case of a solar powered and wind turbine option, eliminated the CO2 emissions completely.
The CCTV range utilities high tech 4K camera technology with thermal and APNR options, all fitted with Home Office Approved analytical software which reduces false alarms by up to 95%.
During the first quarter of 2021, Red CCTV had systems protecting 14 sites and, thanks to their onboard telematrics system, were able to save 303,125kg of CO2, 116,586.58 litres of fuel, a saving of around £71,000 for clients.
