July’s Monthly Impact Report
July was a scorching month here in Devon which has given the team a chance to soak up some sun at the beach! It also gave our energy usage a break and helped reduce our figure for the month of July.
We have set up a new recycling bin for soft plastics which will reduce our amount of waste going to landfill. Reducing our waste further will be an ongoing challenge for the team but we are committed to exploring new ways to do this.
Company mileage was higher due to the nature of some of our research projects. We are committed to monitoring this figure and this will be accounted for in plans to carbon offset our emissions. Our team follows a flexible work pattern including work from home which allows us to save on commuting miles. Balancing out this impact and assessing essential car travel will continue to be a goal for our team.
