Ecology maintains Investors in the Environment Green accreditation for the third year running17 March 2017
We’ve maintained our ‘Green’ accreditation for the third year running under the Investors in the Environment (IIE) scheme – the highest level of accreditation possible. This reflects both our current environmental performance and our commitment to ongoing improvement.
Our key achievements in 2016 included:
- 16%* decrease in use of gas and 8%* reduction in use of electricity
- 33%* decrease in water consumption of by expanding the use of our rainwater harvesting system to include watering our organic permaculture gardens
- Further decreases in toner usage and business mileage
Despite the challenge of continually achieving year on year reductions, we remain committed to a year on year target to reduce our overall resource use by 2%**
Our latest IIE Audit Report is here.
*Percentage decreases are per staff member
** Target of 2% decrease per staff member for overall resource use including gas, electricity, water consumption and overall carbon emissions
