Halesworth Accident Repair Centre achieves carbon neutrality

Our Accident Repair Centre in Halesworth is awarded PAS 2060 – Carbon Neutrality


We are delighted to have taken the massive step of this accreditation to become carbon neutral. As a business this means that we are proactively reversing our impact on climate change whilst reducing emissions over time.

As a well-established group we recognise that taking sustainability action is crucial to long-term success. We welcomed the opportunity to become carbon neutral and contribute to nature and reap the rewards of increased revenue, reduced costs, attract new business and reduced risk of carbon tax.

Matt Summerfield, Assistant Bodyshop Manager at Halesworth presented these answers around the accreditation.

Once our carbon emissions where calculated they were then reduced though a certified carbon offset project, carbon offsetting to a proactive environmental action reversing the impact of emissions.
