We joined in the fight against climate change by becoming only the 13th company in the UK to have our climate goal - to be zero carbon by 2030 – independently validated by the Science Based Targets initiative (SBTi). The SBTi is a collaboration between CDP, the United Nations Global Compact, World Resources Institute (WRI) and WWF. The initiative defines and promotes best practice in science-based target setting, and independently assesses and approves companies’ targets.
You can read all about our target and carbon related activity in our blog here.
We are also a certified carbon neutral company. This means we annually measure our operational carbon footprint and our data is audited by Carbonfootprint.com. We then offset our total operational emissions, plus a few additional measures including our staff commuting. Our offsets helps to invest in forest conservation in the Amazon rainforest, one of the world’s ‘biodiversity hotspots’. Closer to home, we also plant trees in the South West of England.
