Ecology Maintains ‘Green’ Accreditation

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
