Renishaw’s Ben Goodare named manufacturing role model

Ben Goodare, Head of Sustainability at engineering firm Renishaw, has been named one of The Manufacturer’s Top 100 role models for the manufacturing sector. The commemorative list aims to recognize those that have contributed the most to the advancement of the UK’s manufacturing industry.

Goodare has been at Renishaw for nine years and has spent his time implementing the company’s carbon management system. Initially, he used data from 139 locations to calculate Renishaw’s carbon footprint and has since helped the firm reduce its emissions by 39%. This was done through a number of initiatives such as switching to low impact lighting, installing insulation, and migrating to renewable energy sources.

“It was great to see such a range of people recognised in The Manufacturer’s Top 100,” said Goodare. “To be recognised for sustainability work in the industry demonstrates that manufacturing and sustainability go hand in hand. One great thing about my role is how applicable the work is — I work with everyone at Renishaw because sustainability is relevant to all aspects of our business.”
