We are proud to be the UK’s only Carbon Neutral home care company.
This means that every single care visit our team provides, and all emissions from powering and heating our offices, is measured and then offset by local tree planting and investment in certified renewable projects in the UK and around the world.
In the climate emergency we are all experiencing, young and old, every decision we make impacts on the planet in a positive or negative way.
It is not discussed enough that home care is a carbon-intensive service; the vast majority of carers travel in petrol or diesel cars between visits, with mainly short journeys in towns.
How do we ensure carbon neutral care?
Harnessing our technology, we are able to accurately measure our exact carbon footprint, try to reduce it where we can, and offset anything we can’t reduce.
We work with a national accreditation scheme who check and verify our data. We work with experts to offset the carbon we have produced, choosing which projects best suit our ethos and values.
This means that our staff, clients, and their families can rest assured in the knowledge that the service they have chosen has no negative impact on their environment. Indeed, our UK tree planting scheme also protects one tree in the Amazon for each tree planted in the UK, ensuring a net increase in trees globally.
We have shown home care doesn’t need to be bad for the planet, and we hope other care companies follow our lead.
