It's critical that we all accept the climate emergency and do everything we can to reach carbon neutral or carbon negative status fast. Here's what Brooks Ecological is doing.
We have fitted solar panels to our office roof which now makes all our office electricity consumption effectively carbon neutral
We have already invested in a plug in hybrid car and an office plug in station. We have a policy to replace all company vehicles with full electric with our first full electric car arriving in autumn 2019.
We look to employ staff who live close to work and encourage cycling by providing covered locked storage and a shower and lockers in the office.
We are setting up our own carbon offsetting fund and working with our sister company Ecological Estates will be funding and delivering offsetting projects including tree planting and funding solar PV installations.
We work hard to source sustainable and recyclable products from local suppliers.
Our offices are located within 100 m of a train station. This is no accident. We encourage all staff to use public transport to travel to work and while at work.
