We have been calculating our carbon footprint since 2010 and annually offsetting any emissions. This year, to demonstrate our continuing commitment to the environment, we are proud to announce that we are now a certified Carbon Neutral® company.

We have been calculating our carbon footprint since 2010 and annually offsetting any emissions. This year, to demonstrate our continuing commitment to the environment, we are proud to announce that we are now a certified Carbon Neutral® company.

Over the past years we have been progressively refining our footprint and following the ‘Green House Gas Protocols’ and ‘World Resources Institute’ guidance, our current footprint includes all Scope 1, 2 & 3 emissions; energy, consumables and purchased equipment, commuting and business travel, waste and recycling, and even home working.

For a number of years, we have been voluntarily offsetting our residual emissions by planting trees locally ourselves, with local community groups or wildlife organisations.  However this year our 2017 footprint has been established through Natural Capital Partners’ Climate Action Hub, an easy to use online footprint hub for SMEs.  Our residual emissions have then been calculated and offsetting credits purchased.

For our 2017 emissions, we are supporting offsetting projects which conserve and restore forests around the world for our Carbon Neutral® business certification.  The Climate Action Hub ‘Habitat’ portfolio projects enable us to make a positive contribution against global deforestation.  By purchasing carbon credits to offset our business emissions, we are providing essential funds which support forest communities to build sustainable livelihoods, protect trees and enhance biodiversity.
