Customer Testimonial - Stothert Cushions

“UNICEF UK has always been concerned with its environmental impact and engaged with Crowberry Consulting Ltd  to formally calculate our carbon footprint for 2022 and provide actions for us to follow through on our path to net zero.  Becky and the team were clear on the data they required from us which made the process simple.  The final report has given us a range of feasible options to pursue and it was explained in a very clear manner which will enable us to explain our current and future climate targets to our staff and supporters.”
