Stratagem Goes Carbon Neutral Lobbying company gets 'A-Star' for 'C-Plus' scheme21 April 2009
Public affairs company Stratagem will round-off its tenth anniversary year by supporting the Woodland Trust's 'CarbonPlus+' scheme. This will see the business fund the planting of almost 300 trees to help offset its carbon dioxide emissions over the past decade. The company has been awarded a CarbonPlus+ certificate in recognition of its efforts.
Quintin Oliver of Stratagem said: "We are very much aware of our responsibility to the community and the environment, and with this Woodland Trust initiative, we hope we can help tackle the issue of carbon emissions.
"Everyone at Stratagem felt that offsetting the decade of carbon emissions generated by our business activities was a really positive way to end our 10th anniversary year.
"This adds to our existing commitment to responsible business practice, which includes sponsorship of community projects, having a payroll giving scheme and recycling as much as possible.
"We look forward to continuing to work with the Woodland Trust in Northern Ireland, offsetting our future carbon emissions and minimising our impact on the environment."
In addition to offsetting its carbon emissions, Stratagem has put in place a comprehensive set of measures to reduce the amount of carbon dioxide it creates in the first place. This includes using green energy, undertaking an energy audit, and encouraging staff to use public transport, cycling or walking to get to work and meetings.
Patrick Cregg, Director of the Woodland Trust in Northern Ireland, added: "We're delighted that Stratagem has taken part in our CarbonPlus+ scheme. Stratagem has helped fund the planting of almost 300 trees as part of its comprehensive emissions reduction programme.
"Tree planting is a simple, effective way to tackle global warming and makes a really positive contribution to the local landscape. We hope that other companies will be encouraged to follow Stratagem's example."
