Background

Being environmentally conscious, we began to measure our carbon footprint in 2019, devised an internal carbon reduction plan and began implementing that plan in 2020. We installed a 100kW solar PV system and replaced old gas powered hot air heating systems with more efficient models, we also began a
program to replace all traditional lighting with LED and placed sensors in low traffic areas. On production of our 2020 footprint, we showed a reduction in our gas of 4 tCO2e and 10 tCO2e in our electricity, this was a reduction of 28.5% in our scope 1 and 2 emissions.

In future

We’re currently looking into other energy saving opportunities to further reduce our carbon footprint in the future.
