Expotel cuts CO2 emissions 29 per cent

Conference and event management agency
Expotel has announced it has secured CarbonNeutral company status for the third
year on the back of reducing its carbon footprint by 29 per cent since its 2007
audit.

Expotel has been working with the
CarbonNeutral Company to measure and ultimately reduce to net zero the carbon
emissions generated by its waste, consumption of energy and business
travel.

Diverting as much waste as possible away from
landfill for reuse and recycling where it can’t be eliminated has been a
priority. Expotel has also initiated travel plans which include car sharing
schemes and a change in company cars from petrol to diesel.

“This significant reduction of our emissions
by 29 per cent since 2007 is something we are extremely proud of,” says Expotel
client services director Steve Hall.

“Our company remains committed to the
environment and that we promote an environmentally aware culture within Expotel.
The results we have achieved prove that this policy is upheld by all our staff
and works.”

Marketing director at the CarbonNeutral
Company, Rebecca Fay, congratulated Expotel for implementing the CarbonNeutral
programme for a third year running and reducing its original carbon footprint
“through internal operational changes and the engagement of staff.  We look
forward to working with Expotel and making even further reductions,” she
adds.
