Copper Consultancy, the award-winning specialist infrastructure communications agency, has been certified as Carbon Neutral.

Copper supports a range of clients in developing and articulating impactful sustainability strategies that will help to reduce the carbon impacts of their projects, their organisations and the infrastructure industry.

As the country continues to progress towards its carbon neutral status, Copper has committed to implementing an ongoing programme to assess its carbon footprint, take action to reduce it wherever possible and offset what cannot be eliminated.

The company partnered with Carbon Neutral Britain to assess its carbon impact, advise on and certify the firm’s net zero status.

Although Copper’s carbon footprint reduced dramatically during Covid, and with introduction of virtual meetings, a move to paperless working and increased use of virtual engagement, there is a remaining impact on the climate. To offset this, Copper has chosen to invest in projects with Carbon Neutral Britain’s Woodland Fund, which supports the planting and management of forests in the UK and around the world.

Commenting on the carbon neutral status, Ben Heatley, Managing Partner of Copper said: “Copper is actively involved in the UK’s transition to Net Zero. We work with developers of renewable energy, support the emerging hydrogen economy and support clients as they make their own transitions to low carbon. As such, it is only right that we also seek to take a lead and tackle our emissions alongside the rest of our industry.”
