In recent years, the urgency to tackle climate change has been growing with the issue being at the forefront of global leaders’ attention at many political conferences.
While we need world leaders to take urgent action to tackle climate change, we all need to recognise the importance of reducing our emissions and managing the impacts of our activities on climate change.
In 2021, Oakland Care became the first UK care home group to be certified as carbon neutral. This important certification has been achieved for a third year running in 2023, and sadly, we remain the only UK care home group to have invested in doing so.
For Oakland Care, carbon neutrality is just one small step in our sustainable journey to net zero.
While we work to set our targets, we are conscious of the urgency to act now. That’s why we are investing in innovative projects throughout our business to reduce carbon emissions and our overall carbon footprint.
We have implemented high sustainability requirements through our tendering processes with suppliers to ensure that the supplies we procure are produced and delivered with a lower level of environmental impact.
