Kite Packaging Enters Third Year of Carbon Neutrality

March 2023 brought renewed confirmation of carbon neutrality for Kite Packaging Group Limited from Carbon Neutral Britain.

In 2022, Kite achieved carbon neutral status under Scopes 1 and 2, extending their offsetting to also include third-party deliveries under Scope 3. Following on from last year, the employee share-owned company has maintained this, successfully offsetting a total of 1338 tonnes of COe emissions, far exceeding their emissions for the year.

All Kite trucks and outbound deliveries made by third-party couriers have been offset and are therefore carbon neutral.

The company is continuing to operate with carbon neutral delivery, whether that is between Kite's NDC and RDCs or directly to their customers and will be shown on customer delivery notes.

Pintail Candles marks 30th anniversary

Pintail Candles is celebrating a significant birthday this year. The company has been making fine fragranced candles in the South Lakeland countryside for 30 years.

Director James Long started the business in 1993 at a time when the candle market was dominated by big manufacturers and the number of small boutique candle makers could be counted on one hand. His first workshop was in a basement and his first range was a collection of pillar and taper candles.

After a couple of years, he moved to a converted milking parlour and took on his first employee. It was at this time that Pintail Candles became one of the first candle makers in the UK to produce candle tins, a product which they have been associated with ever since.
