AFC Award - July2023
VAS goes Carbon Neutral!!
It is vitally important for all businesses to step up and take account of the environmental impact associated with their operations. In 2023 we made a commitment to become carbon neutral, and we have engaged with Carbon Neutral Britain™ who have carried out a full review of our carbon footprint.
In March 2023, we offset our carbon footprint in full to become certified as a carbon neutral business by Carbon Neutral Britain™. This was achieved through investment in the Woodland Fund™ Portfolio of verified carbon offsetting projects around the world.
As a certification awarded by an external organisation, it provides assurance that the carbon neutral claim is robust and credible, following calculation using the ISO 14064 and GHG Protocol Emissions Standard principles of relevance, completeness, consistency, transparency and accuracy.
We have been awarded carbon neutral status for a period of 12 months. As a business, we are committed to completing an annual calculation of our environmental impact and emissions to further monitor and evaluate changes, in addition to offsetting and maintaining a carbon neutral status.
