We are pleased to announce that over the course of the last 12 months, the actions we have taken to reduce our carbon footprint have been successful. The CO2 emissions covering the period April 2022 to March 2023 have been recalculated, and the new number has reduced to 160 tonnes per annum. This decrease has come about from reduced air travel over the period, and occupying a smaller office space than in the previous year. We continue to support the Surrey Wildlife Trust and staff took part in a Wild Work Day in January 2024. There is more on this in our News Section on the website. Another day is planned later in the year.
In 2022 the company took the decision to measure its C02 emissions through the use of office space & electricity, travel and purchased goods and services. Our estimate came out at 270 tonnes per annum. We continuously look for ways to cut our C02 emissions – as well as monitoring what we do produce as a company. We have optimized our office space and made more efficient use of our travel for overseas marketing, and have started to examine other methods of reducing our C02 emissions. The company took the decision that it did not want to simply pay into a carbon offset scheme, such as tree planting, but rather we wanted to look at ways to improve our local environment through volunteer work by staff. In this way we will be able to contribute in a practical way and benefit the community living in the vicinity of the office.We have joined the Surrey Wildlife Trust as a Gold Business Supporter. Aside from contributing to their funding, joining the Trust also allows us to join in with activities throughout the year, and to arrange volunteer days where staff can get their hands dirty out in the fields of Surrey.We are arranging to take part in Wild Work Days organised by the Surrey Wildlife Trust, the first of which is in January 2024. Information on the activities of this day, and future events will be posted below. Our actions have resulted in Eiger Trading now becoming Carbon neutral, a position which we will constantly monitor
