Type of certification
How long have you been certified carbon neutral?
Since December 2021.
Why did you choose to go carbon neutral?
We are committed to protecting and preserving our natural environment. Taking account of our carbon emissions and offsetting our impact is a necessary step, although it’s just part of our overarching mission. You can explore our mission and the many ways we are working hard to drive sustainable change here.
What are the anticipated benefits of your carbon neutral certification?
Certification formalises our position as a net zero carbon emissions organisation. It gives authority and validation to all of our efforts and we hope it will inspire our team and our community as we continue to push forward.
What offset projects do you support?
A reforestation project in Western, Australia, a hydroelectricity project in China, and a wind farm project in India.
How can customers support you?
By being mindful and choosing to support brands that are genuinely committed to reducing their environmental impact in a formal and transparent way.
What else are you doing to reduce emissions?
The quantification process highlighted our main sources of emissions. In addition to offsetting these emissions straight away, we are working hard to reduce our emissions within all of our forward planning activities. For example, by prioritising road and sea freight over air freight, as well as increasing our ‘work from home’ arrangements for team members to reduce commuting.
What advice would you give to a business considering certification?
We would highly encourage all businesses to pursue certification. It’s a great process, through which you can understand the true cost of your operations, develop a framework to set change in motion and measure your progress.
