Following a recent assessment by the Carbon Charter Panel, we are delighted to have received our second approved accreditation at Silver Level, in recognition of our efforts to monitor and reduce our carbon emissions.
The Panel carries out their assessment every two years, so we are pleased to have maintained our commitment to the environment since 2019. The Silver Level is only awarded to organisations that, in addition to implementing measures to manage and reduce energy use, have implemented measures that will lead to clear reductions in carbon emissions in the longer term.
This accreditation allows us to show our customers and professional connections that we are playing our part in reducing energy consumption, whilst also making savings.
- Our head office here at Claydon Court is a carbon neutral territory, with the site offering water reclamation and highly efficient insulation.
- Our solar panels (installed in March 2019), mean that our use of solar energy – as a truly renewable source – will further reduce any negative impact on the environment.
- We have sponsored the introduction of EV charging points at Claydon Court, which are now available for all staff and visitors to use.
- In our commitment to paperless working we encourage clients to use our online Client Portal, which enables them to access a wealth of information in the greenest possible way.
The Panel was most impressed that one of our team recently purchased an electric car, along with our plans to continue our significant reduction in business travel mileage and the pollution associated with it after the lockdown.
We are proud to be among Suffolk’s small businesses that communicate their environmental commitment through the Suffolk Carbon Charter brand.
