London maintenance and landscape company announces carbon-neutrality
While world leaders gather for the COP26 summit, landscape and grounds maintenance company idverde are delighted to have been recognised for their work to tackle climate change.
The company has been awarded the Carbon Neutral International Standard and welcomed as a participant in the United Nations Climate Neutral Now Initiative. This means that all idverde services that are delivered to its clients and customers are carbon neutral, covering the direct emissions generated from those business activities.
As well as its ongoing commitment to reducing its carbon footprint, the business also placed emphasis on raising awareness among its 3,500-strong workforce of the climate and ecological crises the world faces.
Climate Neutral Now encourages and supports organizations to act now in order to achieve a climate neutral world by 2050, as enshrined in the Paris Agreement.
Dominic Knower, sustainability programme manager at idverde, said: “I am delighted that we have achieved the Carbon Neutral International Standard through our partnership with One Carbon World. It has certainly been a challenge getting to this point, but it has been an unfaltering priority over the past 18 months to achieve this outcome.
“While we have made numerous positive changes to our business already, this milestone formally marks the beginning of our journey toward net zero as we now have a far greater understanding of our company carbon footprint.”
Chris Pullen, chief executive officer of idverde UK, added: “There is a substantial task ahead in decarbonising our services over the coming years but our commitment to do this is underlined by our participation in the Climate Neutral Now initiative.
“Through the signing of this pledge, we have committed to continuously measure our emissions, reduce them as much as possible and contribute to offsetting projects along the way.
“If the world is to successfully deliver on the Paris Agreement, idverde must play its part in following the science and taking every action necessary to support these goals.”
