We all know how important it is to play our part in helping to clean up our environment and our Bromsgrove Office is leading the way with our Going Green project, headed up by our Client Director Thomas May.
As part of our sustainability mission, our target is to reach net zero by 2025 and achieve the following key aims through our Going Green project:
- Reduce our carbon footprint
- Reduce our energy costs
- Help to educate others about the benefits of sustainable business practices
- Make a difference so that together we can preserve the world we live in for future generations
To kick-start our Going Green project, we installed solar panels as we knew that in the long term this would go a long way in helping us achieve our sustainability mission. So far, we have reduced the amount of energy we pull from the grid by 58% - and this is only going to get better!
We also installed an electric vehicle charging point on site. Changing to an electric vehicle offers significant benefits – but not just for the environment.
Did you know there are significant tax savings for business owners and their employees too? Download our factsheet below and watch our webinar to learn more about how you can improve your green credentials and take advantage of the various tax saving incentives and grant schemes available.
With these two initiatives alone, we estimate a payback period of around 4 – 5 years, but with energy prices constantly on the rise, we may well achieve this much sooner.
As part of our sustainability mission, we also formed a “Green Team” where we get together to discuss other ideas of how we can help the environment. From home growing competitions to reducing plastic waste and improving our recycling, we’re really enjoying helping to make a difference to our environment.
We’ve also partnered with local community initiative Keep Bromsgrove Beautiful to organise regular litter picks at lunchtimes.
So yes, we’ve had a busy year and we’re only just getting started!
