We have a dedicated CSR champion and have CSR teams across the business.
Our ambitious carbon reduction target is to significantly contribute to 1MtCO2 of annual emissions reductions by 2025. This is the equivalent of 1% of the UK’s required reductions to meet the fourth carbon budget.
We also work to reduce the environmental impact of our direct operations by working more efficiently. We have achieved carbon neutrality in 2020. We have been ISO 14001 compliant since 2011 and we pay ‘cycle miles’ to our staff to encourage cycling to work.
We use Verco’s network, skills and capital to invest in carbon-saving projects locally. In 2014, the community wind turbine that we co-developed and financed in Berwick was commissioned and has now operated for over 4 years, saving 1,350 tCO2. This project is providing £2.3m to the local community over the next 25 years.
Through our volunteering days we have helped to preserve natural environments, working with Wildlife Trusts and other environmental organisations:
Verco’s Overmoor team contributed to increasing the meadow diversity by removing turf and replanting wild flowers. A rewarding day.
The 4th year returning to Brockholes, a 250 acre nature reserve. The Verco Team were removing evasive trees and repurposing them as dead hedging for a beautiful sustainable look-out point on the lake.
Our Overmoor office donated a day of time to help maintain the 24-acre community woodland on the Western edge of Bath.
Verco Chorley returned to this Wildlife Trust Nature Reserve, helping to maintain the meadows by removing ragwort and dock which are unsuitable for livestock.
We collected nettles to make valuable liquid fertilizer for use on the farm, removed the very poisonous plant; Dog’s Mercury and prepared signs for painting.
We gathered and prepared log piles for sale to generate funds for the upkeep of this important area of woodland.
We assisted in the upkeep of the animals and prepared vegetable beds to be used to educate children and support young people in their community projects.
We worked with the Reserve officer to build dead hedges with the purpose of allowing public access off the footpath, while protecting the wildlife and their homes.
We pulled up Himalayan Balsam, a non-native invasive plant.
We built two portable foot bridges for use on the reserve in winter, to cross flooded ditches for coppicing and maintenance work.
We picked litter around the pathways, repainted the wooden walkways and pulled up invasive plants from the surrounding lake edge.
At one of the community gardens we prepared the ground and planted seed beds.
We installed an information board and a disability access gate.
We helped to maintain the Heritage Gardens, pulling up weeds, turning the soil, sweeping up the fallen leaves.
We helped to clear an area covered in weeds in preparation for a new bed for planting.
We pulled nettles and cleared banks.
We contribute to world-leading thinking around energy management and policy. This allows us to provide the best advice to you, based on sound industry knowledge and a forward view of energy management.
We are delighted to be awarded recognition for our work.
