ACME IS NET CARBON ZERO8th of January 2021
The ACME Carbon Audit for year 2019-20 is complete. We have used 85t of Carbon, through heating and power, commuting, coffee and milk, paper and corporate travel, equating to 1.2t per employee. We have offset this Carbon through the planting of trees in UK schoolyards. The Audit also summarizes the carbon embodied in the projects we designed during the year. We are proud that the majority of our projects are now timber buildings, locking carbon within the structure. However, the embodied carbon of our buildings remains very large, with much to do in the coming year to reduce the carbon footprint of our buildings. The Audit is available here: link. Please feel free to copy our methods and sources, it is high time for all of our industry to move to Net Carbon Zero.
HAPPY 20211st of January 2021
