Carbon Trust

Calor is proud to have the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon, which recognises our commitment to reducing our carbon footprint. We have held the standard since 2011 and to achieve it, the Carbon Trust assesses our carbon performance in three key areas: carbon footprint measurement, carbon management and carbon reduction performance. We submit for re-certification every two years, with the next certification due in December 2016.

Sustainability memberships

Calor is a member of numerous sustainability organisations. We do this so that we can learn from others’ best practice ideas as well as push the sustainability agenda with government and other authorities as part of an industry wide collaborative group.
