We help businesses and the public sector adopt more sustainable, low carbon operational models by measuring and certifying the resource footprints of organisations, their supply chains, products and services to recognised international standards and by providing Assurance statements that verify environmental claims.
The Carbon Trust provides independent certification and assurance services that recognise real achievements in sustainability, identify improvement opportunities, enhance your reputation and build trust with customers, investors and stakeholders.
Having developed the world’s first certification for organisational CO2e and product carbon footprints, the Carbon Trust is the leading footprint certification body for carbon, water and waste.
Our aim is to develop the UK’s most carbon-efficient network, putting our own operations under the microscope and looking for ways to reduce the footprint we leave on the world. By evaluating our impact in conjunction with the Carbon Trust we feel we are doing just that.
