Our Carbon Neutral Audit for FY2021 is complete and we are proudly Certificed Carbon Neutral, again.

Always trying to do better, this year we reduced our electricity consumption by 49% through behavioural change, and reduced our travel footprint by 57% after switching to online meetings whenever possible.

After committing to Architects Declare in 2020 we completed a 3 step process:

1. We commissioned a NoCo2 audit with the Carbon Neutral Institute to measure our carbon footprint
2. Switched to 100% Green Power, no fossil fuels and offset with credits from Biomass with India Clean Energy
3. We committed to annual audits of our emissions.

See our listing in the Low Carbon Economy suppliers site. We also have Carbon Neutral Service Certification.
