Winn Group has reaffirmed its commitment to environmental sustainability following a comprehensive carbon footprint analysis conducted by Carbon Footprint Ltd.
Following a year-long evaluation of greenhouse gas emissions originating from the group's facilities and business transport activities, the analysis identified areas of strength and opportunities in Winns’ sustainability journey.
One of the standout achievements highlighted in the report is Winns’ promotion of sustainable transportation alternatives. The company encourages its employees to adopt eco-friendly commuting practices by offering a ‘Bike2Work’ scheme that allows employees to save almost half the cost of a new bicycle. Furthermore, they offer a ‘Metro Saver’ scheme, which provides employees with discounted passes for unlimited travel across the entire Metro system, reducing the reliance on vehicle travel.
As part of their ongoing commitment to environmental sustainability, Winn Group is actively exploring the potential of a salary sacrifice scheme.
This initiative aims to help employees reduce their carbon footprint even further by providing incentives for adopting eco-friendly lifestyles.
Chris Birkett, Winn Group Chief Executive Officer, expressed his enthusiasm for the company's sustainability efforts, saying: "We recognise the importance of addressing climate change and reducing our environmental impact.
“We are pleased with the progress we have made so far and are committed to continuing our efforts to become a carbon neutral company.
“Responsible business practices are not only good for the environment, they also benefit our community and future generations. The Carbon Footprint report provides a valuable benchmark for achieving our sustainability goals going forward.”
Carbon Footprint Ltd commended Winn Group for its commitment to sustainable business practices. A spokesperson from Carbon Footprint Ltd said: "We were impressed by Winns’ proactive approach to environmental responsibility.
“Their dedication to reducing carbon emissions and promoting sustainable transportation initiatives was shown by the thoroughness with which they provided information for the analysis.”
