In addition to the membership with the 100 trees club, Ecoscape UK has committed to playing its part in limiting the impacts of climate change by signing the Manchester Climate Change Agency’s ‘Commitment to Act’. In November 2018 Manchester formally committed to emitting a maximum of 15 million tonnes of CO2 between 2018 and 2100 (our ‘carbon budget’), reducing our CO2 emissions by at least 13% year-on-year, and becoming a zero-carbon city by 2038 at the latest (Manchester Climate Change Agency, 2021). By signing this document, Ecoscape UK is making an environmental commitment to help combat the issues we face with regards to climate change and help towards tackling the global climate emergency.
Ecoscape UK has begun delivering on this promise through making relevant business changes to reduce carbon emissions. For instance, the Ecoscape office has been adapted into a ‘Green Office Space’, installing not one but two electric car charging ports on site, reducing our paper usage by 50%, introducing electric forklifts and swapping the high energy usage light bulbs for LED energy saving bulbs just to name a few changes implemented.
