In acknowledgment of our commitment to monitoring and reducing our carbon emissions, Sunsquare are delighted to announce that it has secured accreditation from the Suffolk Carbon Charter.
Sunsquare has achieved Bronze Level status, which recognises organisations that take their environmental responsibility seriously, with effective carbon monitoring and reduction plans already in place.
The Charter Panel, which carried out its assessment of Sunsquare’s manufacturing facility at the end of November 2015, was pleased to see our commitment to reduce emissions associated with our energy use by two per cent in the next 12 months.
The Charter itself is designed to take the lead and create the greenest county in the UK; enhancing the natural and historic environment and responding to climate change.
The strategy brings together a raft of successful organisations from across the country – from local government to volunteer groups and businesses – who share the aim of improving the way we live and work.
Since its launch in 2007, the partnership has gone from strength to strength, working with local communities and firms to realise and experience the economic benefits of minimising energy consumption; adapt to climate change and enhance their natural environment.
