The Planet Mark, in partnership with the Eden Project, is a sustainability certification available for all businesses, buildings and projects that are committed to improving their sustainability. It has been providing sustainability consulting and certification services for over 10 years.
Ecoprod takes sustainability extremely seriously and our Planet Mark certification means a lot to us. This is our fourth year of business carbon footprint reporting.
Ecoprod calculated the carbon footprint of its Woking office and fleet for the year ending December 2016 and set a target to reduce emissions by 5% annually.
This year’s footprint includes emissions from energy use in the building (natural gas and purchased electricity), water, from fuel used by the fleet, from waste disposal and recycling, business travel and from the production of paper used in the offices.
The relative carbon footprint in year ending December 2017 was 4.28 tCO2e per employee, a decrease of 24.3% compared to 2016. Ecoprod’s total carbon footprint was 17.1 tCO2e, a decrease of 24.3% from 2016.
Ecoprod reported on underground travel for the first time in 2017 and thus year on year comparison is based on normalised figures that exclude emissions from underground travel.
The decrease in total carbon footprint can mostly be mostly contributed to a decrease in fleet and business travel. Ecoprod reduced its carbon emissions from fleet travel by 27%, rail travel by 72% and air travel by 64% compared to 2016.
