Carbon Charter

Becketts has been granted the Bronze level of the Suffolk Carbon Charter in recognition of the steps we have been taking to reduce our carbon footprint.

What is the Carbon Charter?

The Carbon Charter is an award presented to small and medium sized businesses in recognition of the steps they have taken to reduce their carbon emissions and support the local environment.

It provides support and recognition to SMEs that commit to and adopt carbon reduction measures and sustainable business practices throughout Suffolk and Norfolk.

What changes has Becketts made?

The Carbon Charter panel was pleased to see that Becketts has set out a clear plan for managing our environmental impacts, and shows a strong approach to engaging the whole workforce on improving environmental performance, with the backing of senior management.
