We are delighted to have achieved our goal of being Climate Neutral. Our 2020 footprint figures are currently being verified and we have already offset our footprint with some exciting projects. From the inception of Auva, we wanted to be the first Certification Body to be Climate Neutral, and we believe we have achieved this, so we decided to have this verified by an independent organisation.
This demonstrates our commitment of complete transparency, due to our environmental commitment and the fact that 2020 was obviously a unique year in regards to working remotely. With almost zero flights for the company it was not such a challenge, we recognise that this will change as restrictions are lifted and things return to normality, but we are fully committed to this and will maintain this status.
A win-win for the environment
This is also a good opportunity for certified clients to set as an objective to only use a Climate Neutral Certification Body and this could even support clients demonstrating a reduction in environmental impacts based upon their own lifecycle assessment of their products and services.
