We strive to change the way people heat their homes to create an environment that is as comfortable, efficient and sustainable as possible. Our business model is really focused on tackling climate change and reducing emissions, in line with the UN “Race to Zero” campaign. Our smart underfloor heating systems are the most efficient way to heat a home and we aim to reduce excess annual CO2e emissions by 170,000 tonnes by 2025, which would be equivalent to saving half a million barrels of oil used.
By providing these solutions, we recognize our responsibility to:
The Environment. We will actively work to reduce our energy consumption and global greenhouse gas emissions from our operational activities and infrastructure.
Labor and Human Rights. We will develop internal processes involving all stakeholders to identify and resolve labor and human rights issues in our supply chain, supported by our illegal labor policy.
Ethics. We will be transparent and responsible for our actions as a company, also supported by our “Anti-Bribery and Conduct” and “Social Responsibility and Ethics” policies.
We will achieve these ambitions and monitor our success by:
- • Actively work to reduce our GHG emissions using the GHG Protocol to calculate our global CO2e output. Our goal, aligned with the UN’s “Race To Zero” Campaign, is to half our emissions by 2030 and to acheive net zero emissions by at least 2050. We will monitor and publish these figures annually for 2024 data.
Collaboration with the EcoVadis rating agency to obtain external verification of our sustainability achievements. As of June 2023, Warmup has been awarded the bronze medal, and we will continue to have our annual evaluations to improve our score. Our goal is to get at least a silver medal by 2024.
- • The implementation of ISO 14001 standards initially in all UK operations by the end of 2024.
- • Monitoring and measuring our internal waste flows and aiming to recycle 100% of our cardboard and plastic packaging waste by the end of 2024.
- • Adopting renewable energy tariffs for all UK buildings by the end of 2024.We are committed to taking action now to reduce our carbon footprint and working with our partners to develop new solutions and technologies that can further reduce emissions. We believe this is the only way to ensure a sustainable and healthy future for our planet. Watch our short film to learn more about how we’re helping make Net Zero a reality.
Our smart heating systems can reduce energy consumption and CO2e emissions by up to 35%
Our research has allowed us to develop the most efficient ways to heat homes around the world. Our electric underfloor heating systems are designed to transform energy into heat more efficiently than traditional heating systems such as radiators. This is due to its larger surface area and greater use of the radiant effect. When combined with our smart controls, there is no better way to transform your home into a warm, efficient and planet-friendly space. Our smart controls are programmed to heat rooms only when necessary and to always work, avoiding energy waste. They also include auto-optimization features like SmartGeo to lower the heating when you’re not home, open window features to detect when windows are opened, and pause heating in that room.
By taking advantage of these energy-saving features, you can ensure that your heating always runs efficiently and cost-effectively, reducing energy consumption by up to 35%.
Our Systems Utilize the Radiant Effect
Radiant heat warms you directly, instead of just heating the air around you. This provides a more comfortable and efficient way to keep your home warm. This warmth radiates into the room, making you feel comfortable even if the air temperature is lower your usual comfort levels.
This helps to reduce the amount of energy used to keep your house warm, as you don’t need to use as much energy to create and maintain a comfortable space. Radiant heat also delivers a more even and consistent temperature throughout your home, providing a better, more efficient heating experience.
Our Systems Require Lower Water Temperatures
Underfloor heating systems are designed to optimally use lower temperatures to maintain heat in a room. This is due to its larger surface area and greater use of the radiant effect.
Heat sources such as boilers or heat pumps are more efficient when used with underfloor heating systems as they need to run less to create lower temperature water. With a well-designed underfloor heating system, there will be less energy waste and your home will be kept at a comfortable temperature at a lower cost.
Our Systems are Controlled More Efficiently
Our smart controls are designed to ensure that energy is not wasted heating rooms that are not in use. For example, why heat a bedroom during the day when it is empty? Or why keep the living room warm at night when everyone is sleeping? Each heated room increases the total heat loss of the building, so our controls are programmed to heat rooms only when necessary.
They also include features such as SmartGeo, which automatically turns down the heating when you are out of the house, and Open Window functions which will pause the heating in a room when a window is opened. By taking advantage of these energy–saving features, you can ensure that your heating system is always running efficiently and cost–effectively.
We are Committed to Reducing our Carbon Emissions
In June 2023, Warmup was proud to have successfully entered the global EcoVadis sustainability platform and was awarded the bronze medal. EcoVadis is a sustainability rating platform that helps companies evaluate their own environmental, social and ethical performance, as well as that of their suppliers.
The internationally recognized accreditation demonstrates Warmup’s credentials as a sustainable partner, as we seek to continually reduce our global carbon footprint and strive to halve our carbon emissions by 2030, and reach net zero by 2050.
Warmup is aligned with the SME Climate Hub global initiative and the United Nation’s Race to Zero campaign and are continuously measure our day-to-day carbon emissions using the GHG (Greenhouse Gas) Protocol methodology, helping us to keep on track with our goals. As we all become more aware of the complexities of global supply chains, Warmup is dedicated to improving the impact of our practices on the planet: from optimising freight routes to ensure that we maximise space on every shipment to investing in the usage of more recycled materials in our products and packaging. For our work on sustainability so far, we have been awarded a bronze medal accreditation from EcoVadis, putting us in the top 24% of the construction industry.
We are Transforming our Foundation
We have recently taken steps to move away from running our buildings with gas, and instead operate them using electricity only. To further reduce our environmental impact, we have installed solar panels on all of our buildings in the UK.
This will allow us to generate our own clean energy on–site, and help us further reduce our carbon footprint. We are also taking a closer look at our energy supply chain and working to identify additional ways to reduce our CO2e emissions and make our operations more sustainable. Since November 2023, we have been operating on fully renewable electricity in both our London buildings.
We Operate with a Fully Electric Fleet
We have recently started to change our fleet of vehicles to electric cars. This will ensure that the journeys we take are more environmentally friendly, since electric cars produce zero emissions. Additionally, we have invested in green energy solutions to power our electric cars, such as solar panels and charging stations in all our UK buildings.
Our Products are Built with Recycled Materials
We are committed to using recycled materials in our products to reduce their environmental impact. We are also taking steps to move away from a linear economy and towards a circular one, where resources are recycled and reused rather than thrown away.
We also are continually improving our packaging, reducing the amount of plastics we use and optimizing the size of our boxes to reduce the amount of energy used in transporting them. For example, we have been able to save around 5.5 tons of carbon per year simply by reducing the size of our packaging. These measures are part of our ongoing commitment to reducing our environmental footprint and ensuring a sustainable future for our planet.
