Quarterly carbon stats, for competitive reporting
You’ll be pleased to know that you can count the real cost-savings of cutting your carbon footprint. This is all thanks to the hard work of Corin Wates, inmidtown’s Knowledge Transfer Partnership (KTP)* Associate.
Corin has developed an integrated carbon management system which relates directly to the services we offer. That means that members can see exactly what they save, in carbon as well as costs, when they sign up to inmidtown schemes such as Zero to Landfill or Better Buying. They can also use this information for reporting purposes.
All businesses receive a report on a quarterly basis, but you can also request this monthly. The data can be used for meeting your own CSR reporting requirements, and also to let your employees know what your business is doing to reduce carbon emissions. We also publish a regular report which aggregates data across the entire BID area, and shows the collective value of carbon savings of businesses throughout Bloomsbury, Holborn and St Giles.
*KTP is a programme that helps businesses improve their competitiveness and productivity, using the knowledge, technology and skills within the UK Knowledge Base. We started our own programme in January 2011 in partnership with the University of Hertfordshire’s Centre for Sustainable Communities.
