As a fairly new business we want to start well. That way we can create a good mindset from day one that could help us all in the future. We will build a plan, get assessed, measure our carbon footprint and seek accreditation as soon as possible. Our initial 6 point plan is as follows.
The very nature of our business is to promote less travel and to meet via video where possible. We will always promote hybrid working and will always practice that ethos where possible. At our office and home we will look to ensure we use renewable energy where we can make those decisions.
We are purchasing new demonstration vehicles and we are trying to purchase full electric or at least hybrid. For business travel we try to use public transport where possible
We are investigating courier partners that have a greener approach. Whilst this may cost us more we feel its vital to fit in with our attempts to get close to carbon neutral from the start.
Firstly we will audit our suppliers and look to procure products that use wise packaging. We will ask them not to supply us with any single use plastics and non recyclable boxes, For our own shipments we have sourced all recyclable packaging, fillers and tapes.
We will ask all suppliers to complete a green assessment form so we can audit their affect on our carbon goals. We will also look to source goods from vendors that have demonstrated responsible footprint in bringing the product to life and market. We also will seek evaluation on the plans for the products exit in destruction and disposal.
Offset of our Carbon footprint with a % option for customers of our products to donate to our Tree plantation partner who we are currently looking for a suitable partner. Once we are assessed we will know our carbon volume to offset.
