The UK has committed to being carbon neutral by 2050. As a responsible member of the lighting industry, NVC is keen to play its part in this, so we have taken the necessary steps and can now announce that NVC Lighting Limited is Carbon Neutral
To achieve this, we partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain – a leading consultancy and offsetting organization based in London.
With their help, and using international standards, we have calculated our greenhouse gas emissions. In the period March 2021 to April 2022 these were 463 tonnes of CO₂ equivalent.
We have offset these emissions by investing in audited projects which are re-planting forests, generating renewable electricity and restoring damaged environments. Our Carbon Neutral status is now in place till April 2023. Then, and annually thereafter, our greenhouse gas emissions will be recalculated, and our offsets renewed as necessary to ensure that we continue to play our part in getting the UK as a whole to carbon neutrality by 2050.
That’s not all. While offsetting is the most practical way to immediately mitigate our impact on the climate, it is not all we have done, or plan to do. Alongside offsetting we are reducing waste, cutting emissions and increasing efficiency in multiple ways.
