Waterfords Estate Agents achieve carbon neutral status

We are delighted that as of October 2021, Waterfords Estate Agents with branches in Camberley, Chobham, Fleet and Yateley were certified as a carbon neutral business.

Waterfords Estate Agents has met all Carbon Neutral Britain Certification standards in measuring, calculating and offsetting all organisational carbon emissions within the Scope 1, 2 and 3 GHG emissions boundary during the period of 1st September 2020 to the 31st August 2021.

Waterfords ensured that 110.18 tonnes CO2e of emissions were offset in the month of October 2021 via the Climate Fund Portfolio of certified reduction projects around the world.

It is essential that all individuals, businesses, and governments work towards the universal goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Carbon Neutral Britain certification will greatly assist Waterfords in monitoring, reducing, and offsetting its emissions moving forward.


Managing Director, Brendan Cox, said:

“As a customer and community focussed estate agent, we are very conscious about our carbon footprint and becoming a carbon neutral business has been high on our list of priorities.

Thanks to the help of Carbon Neutral Britain, we have now achieved that status and are offsetting our emissions by investing in certified carbon reduction projects around the world.

We look forward to working with Carbon Neutral Britain by continuing to make every effort to reduce our carbon footprint and by investing in carbon reduction projects.”


Why is reducing our Carbon Footprint so important?

“Our planet is headed for disaster. If we act now we can put it right.” – Sir David Attenborough.

Increased Carbon Dioxide & Greenhouse Gases (CO2e) are the biggest cause of global warming on our planet.

Everything we do - what we buy, eat and where we go, adds to the amount of CO2e produced, adding to global warming.

By offsetting our Carbon footprint - with projects to remove CO2e from the atmosphere, we can balance out emissions to become what is known as carbon neutral.
