Auva joins the construction industry zero carbon change programme, Construct Zero, a collaboration initiated by the Construction Leadership Council to co-ordinate the work of industry-leading companies seeking to decarbonise the built environment.
Business Development Officer, Graham O’Geran sat in front of Auva’s onsite lake that powers the office heating.
Auva works closely with the construction sector certifying businesses to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and ISO 45001. We have pledged to play our part in reducing carbon across the sector aligning to its nine priorities.
Following COP26, and in line with the UK Government’s aim to achieve a net zero economy by 2050, every industry has a part to play in reducing carbon emissions and meeting net zero targets. From the inception of Auva Certification, we have been committed to demonstrating that we believe in what we certify and conduct our business in a manner that always ensures a high quality of service, safety of those around us and taking care of our planet.
We look forward to working as part of Construct Zero alongside other companies and industry groups that share our passion for sustainable change.
Climate Neutral status achieved for second year
We are also proud to have achieved Climate Neutral Certified status for the second year running. As far as we are aware, we are still the only UKAS accredited certification body to have achieved this!
As expected over the past 12 months our offset has increased, this is due to our client base growing and the return of on site audits rather than remote. We have made every effort to ensure each audit we conduct has the least impact as possible to the environment and where possible still perform remote audits.
