We are pleased to announce that we have once again achieved carbon neutral status and has reduced our total emissions by 18.7%.
After a 12-month assessment carried out by Carbon Footprint, which helps organisations reduce the environmental impact of their activities, Animalcare was able to demonstrate its ongoing commitment to the environment.
To date, we have offset 372 tonnes of CO2e by supporting a reduced deforestation project in Brazil and a solar power initiative in India as well as planting over 400 native broad-leaved trees in the UK.
Moving forward, we will be offsetting emissions by undertaking further commitments including supporting a campaign promoting improved cooking practices in Nigeria which involves replacing existing inefficient cookstoves with highly efficient alternatives. The company will also continue to support local environmental initiatives.
Rachel Smithson, GM UK at Animalcare, said:
‘It’s important for us to run our business sustainably and we are proud to have achieved carbon neutral status once again. As well as helping us to protect the environment, the projects we have undertaken locally have been great experiences for us as a team to get together and get involved in the local community.
‘We are dedicated to being as sustainable as possible and are constantly looking at ways to reduce the impact we have on the natural world.’
