Reducing our carbon footprint

We take the impact we have on the environment as seriously as helping you with your money. As an official Woodland Carbon partner, we supported the planting of 73.22 square meters of woodland in the UK last year, resulting in the removal of 2,929kg of carbon dioxide from the atmosphere. 

The Woodland Trust’s scheme of planting UK-native trees in its 1,000-plus woodlands allows us to reduce and offset our carbon footprint by locking up unavoidable carbon admissions, and support nature’s recovery.  These trees will help to reduce the impact of climate change by gradually capturing carbon over time. And it’s not just native woods and trees that we’re protecting, as these environments also provide a home and vital protection to a wealth of wildlife that’s at risk of dying out if it’s not supported.

Our year-on-year commitment to the Woodland Trust shows that we’re committed to safeguarding the environment and hopefully helping to preserve the planet for future generations.
