PBC is delighted to announce that it has received the internationally recognised Carbon Neutral Accreditation standard, which acknowledges the company’s low carbon credentials.

Over the past year the PBC team, lead by Assistant Project Manager Sioned Hughes, has been evaluating its working practices, to measure and ultimately reduce its carbon and energy footprint.

Using Carbon Footprint Ltd’s small business carbon calculator, the team measured the company’s carbon footprint including energy consumption and employee commuting using the 2020 emission factors developed by the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (DEFRA) and the Department for Business, Environment & Industrial Strategy (BEIS) for reporting emissions. PBC was rated ‘very good’ on its energy consumption and ‘excellent’ on its staff travel measurement.

Commenting on the announcement, PBC Managing Director Paul Philips said: “PBC takes its corporate social and environmental responsibilities very seriously, so we are proud to have been awarded this internationally recognised accreditation. Sioned and the team have worked incredibly hard to achieve this, and it is an important step forward for us towards greater sustainability.

We are also delighted that two of our senior team have received the SKA Assessor accreditation, which enables them to monitor and approve the sustainability of clients’ non-domestic fit-out projects.”
