Barkers are delighted to announce that they have been certified as a carbon neutral company.
Working with Positive Planet, Barkers have undergone a complete review of the company’s carbon footprint, and have been measured on three key areas of scope:
- Direct emissions (emissions from company vehicles, buildings etc)
- Indirect emissions (includes purchased electricity – and steam, heating and cooling)
- Upstream and downstream emissions (includes employee commuting, business travel, goods and services purchased etc)
The resulting comprehensive report presented Barkers with a thorough understanding of the ways in which the business could reduce its impact on the environment. Working alongside Positive Planet the business has committed to an action plan which will positively impact the planet both from a practical, immediate perspective, but also from a longer-term educational perspective. As an example, Barkers has committed to planting 1,320 trees, which would offset 150% of the company’s carbon emissions.
