Carbon footprint

Over recent years we have progressively been reducing our environmental impact by investing in technology, improving waste management and engaging colleagues in supporting our efforts in becoming become more sustainable.

These efforts have resulted in an 8% reduction in our carbon footprint since 2012 – a total reduction of 883 tonnes of carbon – the same as the weight of over 120 elephants!

Some of the things we’ve been doing at our head office in Bradford include:

  • Installation of internal and external energy-efficient LED lighting
  • Replacement of air-handling units and central chiller plant
  • Updated roof insulation to improve thermal efficiency
  • Refurbished bathrooms with more water-efficient toilets and faucets

We’ve also revamped 30 branches with energy efficient heating, ventilation and air conditioning systems – not to mention LED lighting, occupancy sensors, and advanced control systems.

We aim to continue to reduce our carbon footprint to achieve a 20% reduction by 2020, against a 2012 baseline.
