Our environmental policy
The Low Carbon Economy Ltd is committed to helping make the transition to a low carbon economy happen.
We provide an on- and offline platform to connect people and businesses with low carbon information, solutions and each other. Our business model is inclusive, transparent and our services are fairly priced and performance-based.
We are honest in our dealings with customers and suppliers and provide transparent reporting for clients.
Ethics and care
We approach our business and personal lives with care and are open about our ethical standards both individually and as a team.
Climate neutrality, including carbon
Our core belief as a company is that the world needs a low carbon economy. We recognize that gases such as methane and nitrous oxide are also greenhouse gases and therefore we are working to minimize our emissions of all greenhouse gases and to work wherever we can to encourage others to be mindful of their own emissions.
Suppliers, including IT, financial and food
We aim in the future only to use suppliers with a triple bottom line approach to business where profit, social and environmental responsibilities are all of importance. This will include our IT, office supplies, energy, financial and food suppliers.
Recycling and resource efficiency
We aim to reduce our net consumption of water, electricity, heating and transport fuels through the paradigm of reduce, reuse and recycle. Where we do need to consume resources, we will endeavour to choose resources that are sourced sustainably, such as renewable electricity, rainwater harvesting and solar heating.
Compliance, affiliations and standards
We comply with all relevant environmental legislation, regulations and requirements.
Charity and donations
We aim to set up a fund in the future to invest in suitable low carbon projects.
