To take a proactive stance and address the comapny's contribution to climate change, Tufcot has committed to the Carbon Smart Programme.
Being Carbon Smart means taking an intelligent and flexible approach to reducing Tufcot's carbon footprint. The company says its Carbon Smart Certification demonstrates the practical actions it has taken to actively reduce its environmental impact, adding that it clearly demonstrates its commitment to customers, staff and suppliers.
Just like recycling, the Carbon Smart Certification makes improving the company's environmental performance part of the everyday running of Tufcot.
This year Tufcot became a Carbon Smart Blue certified business, as part of the So-Go-Eco programme through the Office Friendly Dealer Association. From the 1st September 2015 – 31st August 2016 its carbon footprint was measured as 361 tonnes of CO2e. The most significant area of its carbon footprint is attributed to electricity and the company believes that by doing installing LEDs it will continue to make great progress improving its sustainability. The company says it is proud to have been awarded a Blue level certification that recognises it is taking steps to address our environmental impact.
Moving forward Tufcot will implement its environmental action plan and will aim to progress to Carbon Smart Silver by demonstrating its improved efficiency.
