More exciting news, we have been approved for the Bronze level of the Norfolk Carbon Charter. Demonstrating that we are a clearly environmentally aspirational company, progressing through the Carbon Charter process as data permits.
What does that mean?
This level recognises organisations who are taking their environmental responsibility seriously, with effective carbon monitoring and reduction plans in place.
We will be looking at how we can reduce our energy use further. The minimum requirement is an audit of energy use, adoption of a carbon reduction policy and a clear reduction target. Monitoring emissions and making those first easy reductions is a crucial step – and one that is worthy of recognition.
The Carbon Charter
Individuals and companies alike are changing their habits in order to reduce their energy use. This means potential customers are looking for a reliable measure that can reassure them they’re not damaging the planet with their purchases. The Carbon Charter allows small businesses to communicate their environmental commitment with a clearly recognisable brand. The Charter is designed to be both meaningful and attainable for any business.
BEE Anglia is offering free Charter assessments to eligible companies, but the Carbon Charter is a wider brand than just the BEE Anglia project, with over 350 Charters already awarded. Established by the Environment Agency in partnership with Suffolk County Council and the Chamber of Commerce, the Charter is also backed by Norfolk County Council. Assessments are undertaken by qualified assessors at Groundwork East of England.
