Having undertaken a commitment to reduce our impact on the climate we have developed a carbon management strategy for going carbon neutral.
The strategy highlights our intention to audit our carbon footprint annually and sets out a number of actions which we intend to implement and review our progress against. The aim being to work to reduce our impact in the long term and hopefully in doing so, generate some cost savings.
In the short term buy emission reduction to enable us to make real emission reductions now and to help us to price the cost of carbon into our budgets.
Raise staff awareness by encouraging them to undertake online training modules with the Carbon Trust www.carbontrust.co.uk.

Our estimated carbon footprint is 4.64 tCO2e/yr. We hope to offset this and are looking at the best way to become carbon neutral!
