Our environmental performance

Every year, we publish details of our carbon footprint - a measure of the greenhouse gas emissions that are caused by our operations.

It shows our annual carbon footprints since 2009, with a breakdown of emissions sources.

Environmental policies

Our own environmental policy statement shows how we can reduce our environmental impact.

Our staff are asked to follow several basic rules for saving energy and reducing waste, which help the environment and save money.

We have adopted a carbon reduction strategy and action plan which shows how we will reduce carbon dioxide emissions from our own operations, and help the wider district to do the same.

We are also a Fairtrade council, helping producers in developing countries work to improve their lives and their communities.
