Brighouse company Transline Group has achieved carbon neutral status after making significant investments in a series of group-wide improvements.

The employer is thought to be the only large provider agency in the UK to achieve carbon neutrality.

Transline Group was keenly aware of the impacts of climate change on the business, and worked with The Carbon Neutral Company over a 12-month period to measure the carbon footprint of the business and its UK premises.

Company Director Lara Watson said: “The senior management team at Transline has a genuine social conscience and by making this commitment to addressing environmental issues and taking action as a business to become carbon neutral, we are aiming to effect real change for us and our clients.

“We were already taking steps to minimise our impact – including recycling, installing energy efficient lighting, maximising energy settings on our PCs and laptops, investing in driver training technology and introducing several procurement policies to save energy.

“By working with The Carbon Neutral Company we’ve been able to take account of the impact of what we were doing as a business, and then make further improvements across the board to ensure we are optimising our ability to be environmentally responsible.”
