I See Roofs Of Green

January 28th, 2016 by Alison McKinney | No Responses

Just a mile or two from our main office, lies the small town of Walton-on-the-Naze. What is particularly unique about this seaside town is that it is flanked on three sides by the sea. The Naze, an historic peninsula, is not only a natural open space, but is also a Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI) famed for its fossils found in the Red Crag cliffs.

It’s because of this that the Essex Wildlife Trust has invested, via the ‘Naze Heritage Project’ to the construction of ‘The Naze Education and Visitors Centre’, almost finished and due to open to the public this Spring.

We at The Survey Initiative support the work that The Woodland Trust carry out, we love trees, we love all things green, we’re an environmentally friendly bunch and strive to keep our carbon footprint down.

Carbon neutral policy launched

March 14th, 2011 by Jaime Johnson | No Responses

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.

Highlighted actions

  • 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.
  • We already conduct much of our communications online and propose continue to do so to reduce paper usage and waste.

  • Carbon neutral – going green…

    Its not just out logo that’s green! We aim to be a carbon neutral and environmentally friendly company. We are a paperless office,  and wherever possible utilise technology (conference calling and online meetings) to reduce our need for travel. We are now planning to formalise our commitment to going green by considering what climate change might mean for us, incorporating an energy assessment into our project planning, and also looking at specific action we can take to address the impact our organisation may have on the environment, such as introducing an energy saving policy for the office.

    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!
