In March 2022, KR Group successfully became ‘Carbon Neutral’, achieving a balance between the carbon the business emits and the carbon it prevents.
Our Headquarters, nestled in amongst fields of ewes and lambs, are a short walk from Forvie Nature Reserve. The reserve covers 1,000 hectares of sand dunes and dune heath between the North Sea and the estuary of the River Ythan, home to a rich variety of coastal wildlife. At the mouth of the Ythan, a large seal haul-out competes with the sound of the Northeast winds.
Our tiny corner of the earth and its rich biodiversity has seen the effects of the climate change, more and more so each year. It is important to us to slow these effects and to nurture and enrich our eco systems for future generations.
In March 2022, KR Group successfully became ‘Carbon Neutral’, achieving a balance between the carbon the business emits and the carbon it prevents. This is made possible by making fundamental changes within the business to reduce carbon emissions caused by business activity. The remaining carbon is offset via our partnership with Highland Carbon, who manage ‘offsetting projects’ such as forest protection and reforestation, windfarms, solar arrays, hydropower, waste reduction and community schemes.
We are committed to making ethical and sustainable decisions for our business and workplace. We strive to think economically when it comes to waste management and minimise our use of resources company wide.
In early 2022, KR Group founded their sustainability initiative ‘KR Bon Reduction’, a pilot scheme initially dedicated to repurposing cladding waste and diverting it from landfill.
This circular economic solution to cladding waste will see more than 7,700 tonnes of Co2 emissions prevented in the next five years.
Our efforts have been recognised on a national level, with KR Group being shortlisted as finalists at both the recent CeeD Awards and FSB Awards in their Sustainability categories.
