FSC Declares Climate Emergency
On Thursday 4th July, the FSC Trustees unanimously declared a climate emergency and set out the organisation’s ambitions to hit significant carbon reduction targets by early next year.
We have already saved more than £500,000 on our energy bills after switching from ‘dirty’ to green energy sources and more than 50 per cent of all energy used by the FSC now comes from renewable sources such as solar and biomass.
Switching to greener, off-grid sources of energy has been key to our success in reducing our carbon footprint. Efforts have also focused on building infrastructure and managing heat loss at our centres; replacing our vehicle fleet with more energy efficient cars and reducing travel time for staff.
Further efforts are being made to provide more sustainable meals to visitors and recently we were awarded the Food For Life Served Here Bronze Award by the Soil Association.
