Contego certified as carbon neutral

Contego is delighted to announce it has been certified as a carbon neutral organisation by Carbon Neutral Britain. It means the business has measured, calculated and offset its carbon emissions as part of an ongoing drive to reduce its impact on the planet.

To achieve carbon neutral status, analysts worked with Contego to establish the carbon emissions generated across its activities: from the materials used in production through to employee travel and energy consumption. This carbon footprint is then offset through certified projects around the world.

The first grid-connected wind farm in Mongolia and a hydroelectric plant harnessing the power of three rivers in Chile are just two of the projects now benefitting from direct investment by Contego. In addition to protecting the climate, the schemes also support local communities through job creation and having a positive impact on wildlife and biodiversity.

“I’m proud to announce our achievement of carbon neutrality,” said Nick Reay, Head of Sales at Contego. “This milestone reflects our commitment to sustainability and responsible business practices. We’ve worked hard to offset our carbon footprint and invest in impactful projects. It’s a significant moment for Contego, showcasing our dedication to a greener future.”

Being accredited as carbon neutral represents an exciting next step in Contego’s sustainability journey. From installing solar photovoltaic panels to help power its facility to recycling and reducing waste, Contego is always looking to develop innovative new ways to be environmentally responsible. Contego’s commitment to sustainability is here.
