We're going CARBON NEUTRAL
From early 2006, the experience group will be taking up measures to get as close to being carbon neutral as possible.
Being 'carbon neutral' means reducing the ways in which our activities contribute to carbon dioxide in our atmosphere. This can be caused in many ways, for instance through our use of electricity (in which coal and gas is burned in its production), the burning of gas for heating, and the burning of petrol and diesel in vehicles.
The obvious way to improve is to reduce the demand we impose on the burning of fossil fuels such as oil, gas, and coal, by, for example, using more economical vehicles and more efficient electrical appliances.
However, in addition, planting trees can help to absorb the carbon dioxide from the atmosphere and replace it with oxygen. These 'carbon sinks' are, therefore, good for our environment in many ways, including visual benefits.
So, the experience group will be planting one tree for each and every full day (or equivalent) of coaching, consulting, mentoring, and training delivered, reducing our impact on the environment, and supporting the valuable work of a number of important charities.
