Sustainability

As a business, we're always looking to the future. We know how vital it is to commit to sustainable business and to limit our impact on the environment in the most responsible way.

SME Climate Commitment

SME Climate Hub logo

Carrington West is making the SME Climate Commitment. Companies that sign up to the SME Climate Hub are pledging to halve greenhouse gas emissions before 2030, and to achieve net zero emissions before 2050.

Our own roadmap is more ambitious and we have a plan in place to to be carbon net zero by 2025.

Find out more about SME Climate Hub here.

Why does this matter?

2022 is the most decisive year in climate action history and we believe that everyone must play their part. The global temperature is currently 1.1°C warmer than it was in the late 1800s, and emissions continue to rise. As called for in the Paris Agreement, global emissions need to be reduced by 45% by 2030 and reach net zero by 2050 to prevent the worst impacts of climate change.

As well as improving the future of our planet, being more environmentally friendly can benefit our physical and mental wellbeing, and even save money.

What are we doing?

Since launching our commitment, we've made plans for key actions throughout the year to reach our goals:

  • Measuring, monitoring and reporting our Scope 1 and Scope 2 carbon footprint and activity.

  • Working towards ISO 50001 energy management system to complement the ISO14001 accreditation we already hold.

  • Improving our staff awareness, encouraging sustainable practices in the workplace

  • Supporting environmental charities and initiatives.

  • Working with our supply network to maximise, project sponsorships, campaigns.

Creating a Sustainable Talent Supply Chain

​We are passionate about leading the way in improving standards within the recruitment industry and in the industry sectors we serve. The UK built environment sectors have environmental and sustainability policies at their core, working towards nationwide and global goals such as rail decarbonisation, alternative power production and planning greener urban areas and transport networks. Our role is to make sure that our contribution to the talent supply change helps our clients meet their own goals and contributes to creating a sustainable talent supply chain across the UK.

Jackie Alling Sustainability and Environmental champion

"Hi, my name is Jackie and I have been working with Carrington West since 2021. With a background in the energy industry, I know how important it is to educate people on how small changes to their habits could save the planet and save them money. I do worry about the impacts of carbon change on my children’s futures and how the adverse effects of living in a city pose to my family’s health, but also the devastating consequences it’s having on the most vulnerable communities. Having grown up in Tanzania I developed a fondness for nature and conservation, and it is scary to think how much biodiversity is at stake and whether future generations will have the opportunity to enjoy, or even appreciate the natural world. But we can make a difference, and that’s why I am passionate about driving conversations and actions that can help our business, our colleagues and myself, make more carbon conscious decisions and promote the benefits of the environment and sustainability."
