How does your organisation address climate change?
Our organisation is certified Climate Active Carbon Neutral, we are also a certified B Corporation. We like to walk the talk and have implemented significant energy efficiencies across our operations including building fabric and heating/cooling upgrades, equipment and vehicle change over to minimise emissions. We have a plan to move to fully electric and transition our vehicles to electric (from hybrid) within the next 2 years. Its our role to assist others to minimise emissions, save costs and take urgent action on climate.
