As the UK hosts world leaders in Glasgow for the COP26 summit we are pleased to announce that idverde UK has achieved the Carbon Neutral International Standard, certified by One Carbon World, and has been welcomed as a participant into the United Nations Climate Neutral Now Initiative. This means that all idverde services that are delivered to its clients and customers are carbon neutral, covering the direct emissions generated from all business activities undertaken from January 2020 onwards.
We recognise that being carbon neutral in itself is not the solution but we feel that this is a responsible step to take. Aside from the actions we are taking to reduce our carbon footprint, our business activities from yesterday, today and tomorrow will still have an impact on the planet and we believe that it is our responsibility to compensate for those impacts.
As a leading provider of grounds maintenance and landscape construction services, idverde understands the importance of taking care of the environment. Sustainability plays a key role in everything we do, and as part of our Sustainability Strategy, we carefully consider our environmental impact. Our ongoing commitment to tackling climate change includes addressing the ecological emergency and sensitising our entire workforce of 3500 colleagues to both of these crises.
