Every year we calculate the Group’s carbon footprint. We monitor utility consumption and business travel in order to produce a direct carbon comparison year on year.

A comparison has now been collated and analysed for 2013 as below:

Total CO2 tonnes produced each year:

  • 2009 /2010 - 1787.8 CO2
  • 2010/2011 - 1766.9 CO2
  • 2011/2012 - 1646.3 CO2
  • 2012/2013 - 1670.4 CO2

In 2012/13 our CO2 increased by 29.1 tonnes of carbon (1.44%) due mainly to increased additional sites across Greater Manchester.

The Group's future plans will continue to raise awareness and encourage staff to be responsible by:

  • Switching PCs and monitors off at the end of the day
  • Turning lights off when there's nobody around to use them
  • Aircon units not to be on whilst windows are open
  • Encouraging travelling to work by public transport
  • Offering the cycle to work scheme
  • Refurbishing offices to eco friendly standards
