Leading Carbon Management 

Every year we calculate our Business's own carbon footprint and offset our emissions by helping to finance high quality projects in developing countries to achieve carbon neutrality. We have a highly active Carbon Management Plan with targets for ongoing carbon reductions.


We have already achieved a 91% reduction in emissions per £M turnover since our FY 2008/09  



Offsetting Our Carbon Emissions

Our priority is to avoid unnecessary emissions and reduce our environmental impact as much as possible, however it isn't currently possible for us to reduce emissions to zero. Therefore we annually offset our remaining carbon emissions, by asking our staff to select the project(s) they would like us to be supporting. We are happy to say that since 2019 our offices are powered by green energy and that we have decided to go the extra mile by measuring and offsetting any emissions associated with employee commuting as well!

This year our staff voted and selected to offset our emissions by supporting:

the  Gold Standard GS1247 VPA 49 Improved Kitchen Regimes:Kaliro Safe Water Project project in Uganda

and planting 25 trees in Kenya!

This project provides land reforestation and supports a better quality of life in Kenyan communities in the Great Rift Valley.


The Safe Water Project in Uganda, provides clean drinking water to local communities in Uganda 

This project provides land reforestation and supports a better quality of life in Kenyan communities in the Great Rift Valley.

  • We run the Carbon Academy (for peer group learning)
