Smart Office Support

is Carbon Neutral

This means we did not add to global warming in the year of certification as we saved the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as we produced.


This has been independently validated by Go Climate Positive.

About us

Rachel Nash at Smart Office Support takes on the jobs that small business owners don’t enjoy so they're free to work on their business, not in it.

This could be by taking on their bookkeeping, contract management, dealing with client requests or any other administrative activities that can free them up.

"I always like to see their bigger picture and identify if there is a process we can also improve by automating and streamlining it. There is nothing more frustrating when things don’t move along smoothly but there are plenty of solutions to stop this from happening

Also, as more services are being moved online, I help them to understand where they could utilise this for their own services and then project manage the change to make it happen."

Targets

We are committed to reducing our Carbon Footprint by:

1: Reducing our emissions from energy use (Scopes 1 & 2)  by 5% year on year.

2: Reduce the Intensity of our Scope 3 value chain emissions (kg CO2e per hour worked) by 2% year on year.

3: Investigating energy saving measures.

4: Invetsi9gating green web hosting and IT services.

Activities


We are removing carbon from the atmosphere by planting trees in the UK

We are investing in planting trees and managing woodland in the UK that absorb carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. Our programme plants a mixture of native tree species that are selected for each location to match the needs of wildlife.

We account for each individual tree, and we maximise its ability to capture carbon for at least 50 years by nurturing and managing our woodlands to check that the potential of our trees and their benefits to the local environment is met.


We are investigating energy saving measures


We have committed to investigating energy saving measures including replacing our boiler with a more energy efficient one, reducing the heating thermostat by 1 degree, hosting our website using renewable energy and implementing green measures with our IT services company.

‘Go Climate Positive’ is a membership programme that makes it easy for businesses to calculate, reduce and offset their carbon emissions. It is designed to adhere to the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard and Corporate Value Chain Standard.
