ITVET based in Bishop's Stortford collaborating with Tree-Nation to plant trees to compensate for carbon emissions
A Bishop's Stortford tech company is collaborating with an international not-for-profit organisation as part of its ongoing commitment to protect the planet.
ITVET, which has its headquarters in London Road plus key hubs in London and Manchester, is partnering with Tree-Nation enabling it to plant trees to compensate for CO2 emissions generated by the company.
"Climate change is one of the greatest threats to humanity. As a business, it's our responsibility to reduce our impact on the planet and fight climate change," said ITVET chief executive Daryl Fuller.
"Our partnership with Tree-Nation is the perfect way for us to demonstrate this commitment.
"We're looking forward to seeing the results from this initiative. We'll continuously evaluate our progress and increase our efforts to achieve the highest level of CO2 reduction."
Tree-Nation's reforestation projects are located in some of the driest and poorest countries in the world, helping to create jobs, support local communities and protect biodiversity.
As well as offsetting CO2 emissions, ITVET is taking proactive action to reduce its carbon footprint. This includes hybrid company cars, virtual meetings, hybrid working and creating an energy-efficient smart building.
It was also recently awarded ISO 14001 certification – the world's leading environmental management standard – for its efforts.
