Carbon Smart environmental sustainability accreditation
The Carbon Smart Certification programme is an on-going sustainability project that brings together a team of environmental, business and academic experts to help over 700 businesses to take action to reduce their impact on the environment.
Thanks to the work we have already been doing to improve our environmental sustainability, and our existing adherence to the ISO 14001 international environmental standards, Julius Rutherfoord have now also gained the Carbon Smart Blue standard as of 1st October 2013.
Being Carbon Smart means taking an intelligent and flexible approach to reducing our carbon footprint. Our Carbon Smart Certification demonstrates the practical actions we have taken to actively reduce our environmental impact. It clearly demonstrates our commitment to customers, staff and suppliers. Just like recycling, the Carbon Smart Certification makes improving our environmental performance part of the everyday running of our business.
There are three certification levels; Carbon Smart Blue, Carbon Smart Silver and Carbon Smart Gold. We have already achieved the requirements of the Carbon Smart Blue certificate and will continue to work towards Carbon Smart Gold accreditation.
