Our Commitment

  • 2004 marked the start of the most important enterprise we shall ever conduct...And it won't make us a penny. To reflect growing Global concerns about climate change & energy security we now ONLY offer our current and future Clients a 'Carbon Neutral' Service with a commitment to year on year cuts.
  • Our first two years of neutrality were conducted in conjunction with The CarbonNeutral Company. This status expired in early 2007. We were not satisfied with their service (being firstly very expensive and secondly, very poor in customer service provision) so dropped them in favour of either CO2Balance or Equiclimate.
  • Below are our year-on-year summaries since 2006

2006/2007 Summary

  • Last year we travelled 2360km by car on client Business. We know the gm/km CO2 emissions for our vehicles from and we make a 15% adjustment down because the Car is powered by LPG.
  • Then we add in flights to and from Europe to a total of 6336km and multiply that by the 0.51 kg/km CO2.
  • As a Business we will move away from Forestry sequestration (although we still recommend this for families and personal offsets) and towards purchasing and retiring Kyoto Carbon Credits from the open market. This year we chose Equiclimate.
  • Lean more about Equiclimate at
  • Equiclimate use the European Union Emissions Trading Scheme to buy CO2 Allowances. However, they are not traded they are 'retired' so that these emissions cannot be generated by anyone else ever again.
  • The total CO2 is thus 3.65 tonnes. This is then doubled to account for indirect emissions. This yields a grand total of 7.29 tonnes for the year.

2007/2008 Summary

  • In the year 2007/2008 we saw an unfortunate growth in our Carbon Footprint.
  • The kg/CO2 from Business car journeys increased by 486kg (to 900kg) whilst Business Flights increased their footprint by a massive 2,455kg (to 5,686kg).
  • Total direct CO2 footprint was 6.59 tonnes for the year which we double to include any indirects.
  • In 2007/2008 we switched to CO2balance for our offset.
  • We chose this year to offset this by buying 105.60 (up from 43.29) worth of Solar Ovens & Energy Efficient Stoves in the majority developing world.
  • The year's increases were a reflection of the doubling of travel in connection with Norgine's European-wide User Acceptance Testing activities.

2008/2009 Summary

  • European Flights were down this year with a footprint of 1,034 kg of CO2
  • Total Car Mileage added up to 1,846 kg of CO2
  • This makes a total of 2.88 Tonnes of CO2 which we double to 5.76 tonnes for the year
  • This was offset again with CO2Balance with money devoted to a renewable Energy Project in China
  • The project is the Dajiantan 8MW Hydro Power station
  • The Cost was 43.50
  • So our footprint is way down again - down to the lowest level ever

2009/2010 Summary

  • This year - will it be lower than 5.76 tonnes?
  • Yes it is at 1.2 tonnes CO2 for the year direct which we double to 2.4 tonnes CO2 for the year
  • Total Business Car mileage added up to just 640kg of CO2 - changing to the LPG-powered Toyota Aygo really helped
  • Flights are down to just 560kg of CO2
  • We offset this with CO2Balance with Energy Efficient Stoves using Wood Fuel in Maungu (EA)

2010/2011 Summary

  • This year the direct footprint was 4.23 tonnes CO2
  • 3.2 tonnes came from our flight to Bahrain and 0.36 tonne came from a flight to and from Paris
  • Use of ground transport only came to 0.64 tonnes CO2 - almost the same as last year's figure
  • We doubled this to 8.45 tonnes CO2 for the year to calculate the offset
  • Again this year we offset this with

2011/2012 Summary

  • This year the direct footprint was 5.21 tonnes
  • 3.5 tonnes was just from flying the the USA & back whilst nearly 1.5 tonnes came from a lot of driving
  • We doubled the 5.21 tonnes to make 10.42 tonnes CO2 for this year
  • This year we offset again with CO2Balance at a price of 10/tonne

2012/2013 Summary

  • This year the direct footprint was only 1.63 tonnes
  • Our clients only required driving this year - no flights. Mileage was also down on last year.
  • We double this to make 3.27 tonnes CO2 for this year
  • This year we offset that again with CO2Balance at a total cost of 32.70
