E H Booths (Supermarkets): Our work with Booths has put them at the leading edge of UK food retail responses to climate change. They were the first UK supermarket chain to publish a transparent analysis of the greenhouse gas emissions in their food supply chains. They now practise an integrated, systematic approach to carbon management throughout the business, linked to a vision of helping to enable a sustainable food system for ten billion people.

Taylor Wimpey: Our work with Taylor Wimpey has mapped the carbon in the supply chains of one of the UK’s largest housing builders, providing an overview of operational and embodied emissions from the construction of 10,000 homes.
The Lake District National Park Authority: With our help the LDNPA became the first government authority to adopt a local carbon budget. They are currently working toward targets to reduce both the direct and the embodied emissions from residents and visitors. Read the report.
West Sussex County Council is adopting a similar approach to the LDNPA, making them the first County Council to adopt a local carbon budget.
Greater Manchester County Council: Our work on Manchester’s ‘Total Carbon Footprint’ has put in place consumption based carbon metrics for Greater Manchester and its districts for both residents and industry. Read the report. Following up the policy implications lead to this report on sustainable food in the city.
Presentation to the top team at British Gas Residential; the big picture on climate change and the strategic implications.
Lancaster University: We work with the university to develop interdisciplinary macro perspectives on sustainability. This includes the Global Futures series of ‘standing room only’ workshops.
We delivered a comprehensive carbon footprint analysis for the university including its supply chains. We are involved in numerous academic projects including ‘carbon critical moments’ in individual consumption of food, the carbon implications of dietary choice and evaluation of sustainability projects on the campus.
The BBC: Researching coverage of sustainability.
Eden Project: Advice and provision of the data to drive their carbon calculators and exhibitions. See the calculator.
The Conservatory Outlet: Following our work, this innovative double glazing manufacturer now offers a 20 year guarantee on many of its products and a range of lower carbon glazing options. Read the report.
The Science Museum: Our work with the Science Museum was to help them to understand and manage the embodied and operational carbon resulting from their Atmosphere exhibition. It allowed them to lead by example when communicating the carbon agenda to the public.
The National Trust: We mapped the direct and indirect carbon at a show-case property and helped to explore how this could be managed and how carbon literacy could become part of the visitor attraction.
