We’ve achieved a Gold level environmental certificate from Carbon Smart. Hooray!
This demonstrates that Proper Oils is taking an intelligent and flexible approach to reducing our carbon footprint.
Carbon Smart status certifies the practical actions we have taken to actively reduce our environmental impact. It clearly demonstrates our commitment to customers, staff and suppliers.
It is very satisfying to earn this recognition from our work to measure, monitor, & minimise our carbon footprint. Since the business was formed in 2007, we have worked our way up from a bronze award, to silver, and now we really know what we are doing, to gain a gold award.
In 2013, we will be working towards getting our business accredited to the international environmental management system standard ISO 14001; and aim to “make sustainability tangible” for all those involved in our supply chain, especially the caterers whose Used Cooking Oil we collect, by calculating the local CO2 savings & pollutant reductions achieved.
Thanks to London Community Resource Network (LCRN) for organising the training and the inspection, and to Carbon Smart for a practical programme helping businesses achieve their full environmental potential.
