Blackline Safety Europe Receives Carbon Neutral Verification

Blackline Safety Corp. (TSX: BLN), a global leader in connected safety technology, has announced that its European operations have been independently verified as carbon neutral for all measured emissions during the previous fiscal year.

Certification organisation NQA was responsible for the verification against the internationally recognised standard for carbon neutrality, PAS 2060.

Blackline Safety – headquartered in Canada with offices in the UK, France, U.S. and UAE – manufacturers and provides monitoring services for its award-winning line of connected safety wearable and area gas monitors, currently used by more than 2,200 organizations and protecting over 165,000 workers worldwide.

“The company began the journey to carbon neutrality across our global business as part of our commitment to Environmental, Social and Governance initiatives, which have been evidenced in our annual ESG report since 2020,” said Lacey Griffin, Blackline Safety’s Quality & Compliance Co-ordinator for UK & Europe.

“Last year, our European business announced the results of our first-ever Carbon Footprint report, commissioned to track both direct and indirect carbon emissions and conducted with carbon consultants Auditel,” Griffin said. “As a result of the report and subsequent emissions reduction plan for each site, we have successfully achieved our goal and verified our status.”

Blackline Safety Europe’s carbon footprint was calculated in line with the Greenhouse Gas (GHG) Protocol emission scopes, which include direct emissions from combustion of gas and other fuels, emissions resulting from the generation of electricity and other energy purchased (but generated elsewhere), and emissions made by third parties in connection with operational activities.

Now, the company’s sights are set on continuing its environmental journey by working towards gaining the new ISO 14068 Climate Change Management Standard, Griffin explained.

“Blackline Safety understands the importance of protecting the communities in which we operate and the world as a whole, and will continue to play our part in protecting the environment and providing a sustainable future for the generations to come,” she said. “Our European operations will continue to measure our carbon footprint and identify and implement emission reduction plans, while being true to our overarching company values of driving innovation, resiliency, demonstrating leadership, going the extra mile, and empowering people.”
