When did you first start thinking about reducing your emissions?
We started back in April 2019 and became Carbon Neutral in March 2020, the Shearwater Group plc companies started contributing to this initiative by way of offsetting their carbon footprint through planting trees within the UK. The number of trees planted was calculated through how many tons of carbon dioxide the groups activities generated annually and how many trees it would take to offset those emissions.
