The initiative also gives us the opportunity to work directly with customers to lower the environmental impact of their projects. Working on a project-by-project basis, our team identifies the carbon footprint and neutralises the impact through the acquisition of credits. To give our customers assurance that the calculations and carbon credit process of carbon neutral claims are honest and accurate, our calculator is audited and verified by independent experts. This verification is conducted by EKOS Kamahi Ltd who ensure the quality and accuracy of the calculation, including the offsetting and retiring of carbon credits on the appropriate registry. On completion, a certificate of carbon neutrality is generated to verify the project’s green credentials.
We are the first business in our industry to include the cost of carbon in our products, which gives us the unique opportunity to educate and lead a transition to a lower carbon building industry. We believe that the global building industry can no longer afford to ignore the impact it has on the environment, so we hope that our actions, and those of other leaders in the architecture and design community, inspire our peers to take similar steps towards reducing their carbon emissions.
