Ovendens is delighted to have achieved CarbonNeutral® company certification in accordance with The CarbonNeutral Protocol, the leading global framework for carbon neutrality.
Ovendens has achieved carbon neutrality after calculating the carbon footprint of the business and reducing it to zero through a combination of in-house efficiency measures, sourcing renewable energy and supporting external emissions reduction projects.
The carbon footprint takes into account all the emissions produced by the day-to-day business operation, including:
- the emissions from the fleet of delivery vehicles;
- staff commuting to work;
- the premises occupied by the company;
- the waste generated; and
- all other aspects of operating a wholesale business.
The certification has been awarded by an independent third-party providing transparent, third-party assurance of the climate action taken.
Ovendens Carbon Neutral certificate 2023
”By following the five step process to ensure that their carbon neutral action is clear, transparent and of the highest quality, Ovendens has worked with third-party independent assessors to define and measure the company’s carbon footprint, set a target to reduce emissions through actions and commit to communicating their progress on an annual basis.”
We measure our carbon emissions on a regular basis and continually work to reduce them whenever possible. Due to the nature of our business operation, the unovoidable carbon emissions we generate are offset through investment in domestic and international wind farm programs..
