“It’s allowed us to focus and put structure into the way we’re tackling carbon and what to focus on.”
That’s the impact Dave Ellis, Managing Director at Bridge Civil Engineering says the future Net Zero Standard with CBN Expert has had in getting his business on their net zero journey.
On how Balanced Energy helped get the company on their way, he said: “We didn’t know where to start and now we know it’s directly about our buildings, our offices, our fleet first and then working onto our site emissions, which is a much more complicated process and that involves obviously linking with our suppliers.”
“We’re honing in first, I think as everybody is, on what we control and attempting to improve there first.”
On whether he would recommend the Standard to colleagues within the sector, he added: “I’d highly recommend it.
“As it is linked with the UN, it’s got some credibility behind it. We did find a number of standards and organisations that were willing to sell you an accreditation and we wholly believe the credibility of this one is right up there and we’re very pleased with ending up with this process.”
