Board company Agency Express has become a carbon neutral business - and that’s official.
Working with Carbon Neutral Britain, which advises businesses and individuals on environmental initiatives, Agency Express has met all standards in measuring and calculating carbon emissions generated.
It will now be offsetting its emissions via Carbon Neutral Britain’s Woodland Fund, which is a portfolio of certified carbon reduction projects around the world.
Agency Express marketing manager Naomi Wood says: “As the UK largest provider of estate agency board services we are conscious about our carbon footprint and becoming a carbon neutral business has been high on our list of priorities.
“We have now achieved that status and we are offsetting our emissions by investing in reforestation, deforestation prevention and woodland management projects.
“This is a first but major step in our green journey, but we are proud to be on the right path.”
James Poynter, director at Carbon Neutral Britain, adds: “Carbon offsetting is a simple and affordable way to reverse your impact on climate change for emissions that cannot be removed completely – and in the case of Agency Express, vehicle emissions contributed a significant amount to their total carbon footprint.
“Offsetting their total footprint to become Carbon Neutral is a fantastic achievement, which we hope will inspire others into environmental action.”
