In the midst of a climate emergency it’s not enough to talk about change - we have to act and fast! At Claremont we’ve worked hard to make sustainability a core part of our ethos. It informs the way we approach office interior design and build projects for our clients; it shapes the daily behaviours of our team and it’s driven how we’ve refurbished our own headquarters in Warrington.
The changes we’ve made were informed by a detailed study of our environmental behaviours and carbon emissions and where there was most room for improvement. That study revealed our two biggest carbon outputs as energy use within our buildings and the travel activities of our team – so that’s where we’ve focused our attention not just for short term wins, but to also deliver on our long-term responsibilities. Over the last 12 months we’ve implemented a number of changes that will serve the planet well… and it’s only the beginning.
All of these activities form part of our wider commitment to reduce our carbon emissions by 5% every year – a goal that requires continual evaluation of progress and a sharp focus on making the best green choices. While we deliver company-wide changes that will reduce our environmental impact significantly in the coming years – we also know we must mitigate the carbon we’ve created so far. That’s why we’ve offset 200 tonnes of carbon emissions by supporting two fantastic global projects via B Corp certified business Ecologi – one in India and one in the Amazon Rainforest (you can read more about our carbon offsetting activities here).
Even with all of these large scale changes, we must also remember the importance of small behavioural changes too – many of which form part of our annual Planetmark accreditation. From ensuring equipment is turned off overnight to encouraging car share to meetings, making sure all waste is recycled (we can proudly say none of our waste goes to landfill) and specifying recycled products and materials in our projects – it all adds up.
Change is happening and we’re proud of our progress, but we know there’s still more to do. Sustainability requires commitment, cultural change and a can-do attitude – something that Claremont has in spades.
