FDC are doing our bit for the planet.
We have made sustainability an integral part of our operations and development.
Our first GHG emission assessment by Carbon Footprint Ltd
(1st of March 2019 to 29th February 2020), chosen prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, will act as our baseline for comparisons going forward.
We pledge to assess, report, and offset our carbon emissions annually.
These annual reports will also allow us to monitor and identify areas where we can reduce our emissions.
We hope this transparency not only demonstrates to our customers our commitment to doing our bit as a small business, but in turn motivates other businesses to do the same.
