Working towards a 'greener' environment! We now have an official carbon footprint. As a division we use 2,923 tonnes of carbon a year! This includes our paper usage, our electricity usage and our commuting and business travel. We will be updating this figure in October 2009, and will be setting a formal target for reducing this figure by October 2010!
