Hall & Scott Pledges to Go Carbon Neutral.
In addition to celebrating 25 Years of Hall & Scott in the local community, we are also this year excited to be launching our ‘Carbon Neutral Commitment’ to being a carbon-neutral Estate Agent.
We were challenged by the conversations taking place at the United Nations Climate Change Conference, more commonly referred to as COP26, and in particular, a quote from Boris Johnson where he says, “let’s make this decade a moment of decisive change in the fight against climate change.”
Given each office, setup varies working out what we as estate agents need to do in order be a carbon-neutral company isn’t a simple process but we believe that by pledging to look at doing the following we are doing the best that we can to ensure a ‘green’ future for our planet.
What progress have we made so far?
We have opted to source all our ‘for sale’ boards from a carbon-neutral supplier, additionally, all the sale boards are produced using carbon-neutral methods and recycled materials which can be recycled into new sale boards when at the end of their usable life.
We have changed our commercial waste supplier over to a new contractor, whereby all our waste can be recycled, thus avoiding yet more landfill usage.
So as to minimise travel we are actively encouraging online viewings and valuations as well as phone consultations.
Working are working with property developers to investigate ways to make future new build developments ‘green’ and more environmentally friendly both in their constructions processes and for their long-term environment environmental impact.
What we are working towards is an ongoing commitment, both as a responsible local business, but also as leaders in our communities to ensure a green future for the next generation and beyond.
We will continue to update this page and our social media channels with our progress.
