A reduction of our carbon footprint of 55 tonnes and generating 22759 kWh are just some of our achievements thanks to our investment in new initiatives and equipment and in developing our communications with our staff, suppliers and stakeholders on the benefits of reducing our impact on the environment.  We are delighted to have been recognised for this work.’
