KM Group – KM Security Solutions and KM Cleaning Services - has announced it has been awarded CarbonNeutral® company certification by reducing its carbon footprint to net zero. This means that KM Group can now add real value to its clients by reducing the emissions associated with their supply chain.

To achieve CarbonNeutral® company status, KM Group worked with The CarbonNeutral Company, a world-leading provider of carbon reductions solutions, to measure and reduce its carbon footprint to net zero. All the carbon emissions produced by the company, from energy consumption, waste and business travel were quantified and then reduced to net zero through combining internal reduction initiatives with carbon credits to offset the remaining unavoidable carbon emissions. Through offsetting, every tonne of CO2 emitted by the KM Group has been matched by an equivalent amount of CO2 saved by an emission reduction project somewhere else in the world.

Leigh Bridges at KM Group comments: “As our customers are concerned about the environment and many of them have their own corporate social responsibility guidelines and targets to meet we wanted to ensure that the KM Group was the greenest it could be. KM Group is also concerned about how our working practices and product choices affect the environment so becoming CarbonNeutral® certified enabled us to measure and reduce our environmental impact.”

Rebecca Fay, Marketing Director, The CarbonNeutral Company, said “By measuring and reducing its carbon emissions the KM Group is making a strong statement to its clients and prospects that it is taking action for the environmental impact of its carbon footprint. From our experience, businesses that adopt a CarbonNeutral® position can significantly improve their competitive advantage and enhance their corporate reputation, enabling them to both reduce operational costs and increase revenues.”

The KM Group has implemented, among others, the following changes in order to reduce its wastage and carbon emissions:-
