Carbon Neutral status for Trutex
The specialist schoolwear supplier plans to reduce carbon emissions.

By Laura Turner

20 June 2013

Trutex has become the UK’s first carbon neutral specialist schoolwear provider, with targets set to reduce carbon emissions in the short, medium and long-term. The company went through an extensive auditing programme undertaken by Carbon Footprint Ltd in line with ISO 14064 and the Greenhouse Gas Protocol to identify the amount of carbon it used as an organisation over the last 12 months. 
 
The audit covered all areas of business including energy usage in offices, delivery of goods and business travel. To become carbon neutral, Trutex needed to offset these emissions by investing in a Verified Carbon Standard project, which helps tackle climate change by reducing greenhouse gas emissions and generating clean energy. Trutex chose the Erkenek run-of-river hydropower project in Turkey, which reduces the need for fossil fuel-generated power and offers social and environmental benefits to the local community.
