Earning the Carbon Literacy Trust Accreditation

Galliford Try have been accredited as a Carbon Literate organisation by the Carbon Literacy Trust. Carbon Literacy is defined as ‘An awareness of the carbon costs and impacts of everyday activities and the ability and motivation to reduce emissions, on an individual, community and organisational basis’.

Accreditation was achieved by delivering a training programme to their staff and supply chain that raised awareness of climate change and challenged them to look at, in particular, existing company practices and to come up with innovative ideas to reduce carbon emissions.

The project has fully embraced the teachings of the Carbon Literacy initiative, for example, by choosing to use hybrid generators in place of conventional generators and replacing conventional heaters in the drying rooms with dehumidifiers.

The data collected to date has shown the success of these two initiatives in reducing fuel use and the associated carbon emissions.
