Office Evolution Ltd, the Wiltshire-based office supply and photocopier repair company, has achieved Carbon Neutral Status, accredited by Carbon Neutral Britain. 

The firm – whose full range of Office Supplies, Furniture and Office Machines is based in Bowerhill, Melksham – already has an established relationship with The Woodland Trust where it currently offsets all its customers’ paper purchases through the establishment of new English woodlands. 

Natasha Reid, General Manager of Office Evolution, said, “For the past three years it has been a major focus for the company to reduce our carbon footprint, working with Carbon Neutral Britain has allowed us to carry out a full assessment of our impact and get the company to a point where we are now Carbon Neutral, It has never been more important for businesses to step up and take account of the environmental impact associated with their operations, the next step is to work towards being Carbon Negative, and we have plans in place to achieve this.”

James Poynter, Director of Carbon Neutral Britain said, “We are delighted to partner with Office Evolution Ltd to help identify and offset their environmental impact. 

“In the UK, businesses account for over 85% of total GHG emissions – making corporate action the number one priority in helping stop climate change. Looking to do their part for the environment, Office Evolution Ltd engaged with Carbon Neutral Britain in October 2021, with the ambition to measure and offset their total organisations emissions – to become a Carbon Neutral Business.” 

Office Evolution is also currently in talks to install solar panels at the property in Melksham and hopes to install EV (electric vehicle) Points as the vehicle fleet transitions away from fossil fuels.

Steve Davis, Sales Director of Office Evolution, added, “More and more corporate business is being done between companies with a focus on the environment and a commitment to reduce the impact that their operations have on the planet. We are working with a number of global accounts that want to work with like-minded companies to be a part of the drive to reduce emissions.
