There is increasing concern surrounding carbon emissions and climate change and we feel it’s our social responsibility to measure our own carbon footprint and consider ways to make changes to our business to improve and make less of an impact on the environment.
We’ve been working with LifeCycle Logic to produce a full carbon assessment of our farming and manufacturing business as it currently stands, so that we have a platform and a baseline to move forward from.
This assessment was carried out under International Dairy Federation standards and now allows us to be informed and aware of our business’s carbon status and therefore we’re able to start a carbon energy improvement journey.
We plan to make significant changes such as the use of solar energy, heat pumps, bio-diesel power generation and methane collection, to offset our impacts and to demonstrate leadership of change, progression and environmental awareness to other businesses.
We will repeat this latest assessment in the future to measure our progress, ensuring accountability and transparency, because we want to do the right thing for our farm and our environment. This is a long journey but we’re excited about the future and how Bannister Downs can lead the way in sustainable, socially responsible business practices.
