Carbon Neutral accreditation given to FMCG brand agency

1 Nov,2021

Tactical Solutions, a leading field marketing agency, who work with some of the UK’s biggest brands in the FMCG sector, is over the moon to announce it has become a Carbon Neutral business.

Tactical Solutions have undergone a Corporate Carbon Footprint (CCF) audit through ClimatePartner, which includes calculating emissions from sources such as energy and heating, business travel, office supplies and everything else considered part of daily business practice.

In partnership with ClimatePartner, an international leading solutions provider to corporate climate action, the Chester based business has joined over 4,000 companies globally committing to eradicate or offset business CO2 emissions.

The final CCF calculation provides insight to where carbon emissions, within business practices, can be improved or removed entirely through positive change. Audits take place on a yearly basis to monitor business progress and identify additional areas for improvement.

Tactical Solutions will offset 809,000 kg of their CO2 emissions (the equivalent carbon footprint yearly average of 114 people) by investing in recognised carbon offset projects in the Southern hemisphere, which also promote sustainable development and economic progress. These projects will protect our forests, clean up our oceans and improve the world’s drinking water. Alongside this, Tactical Solutions are also implementing smarter travel and office based environmental solutions to improve their carbon footprint.

Cathy Evans, Managing Director at Tactical Solutions commented, “Maintaining the sustainability of our planet is a common purpose for each and every one of us – no matter your wider business objectives. We know that our colleagues and the customers that we work with are equally as passionate about making the world a better place.”

Luke Rowlands, Head of Convenience at Unilever said, “It’s great to know Tactical Solutions have embarked on a journey to reduce their carbon emissions. It is a quality and consideration that is very important to us and therefore any agency that we work with, that is an advocate for improving the environment is a good thing.”

Commercial Director at Quorn, Phil Watson added, “I was delighted to see that Tactical Solutions are committed to becoming Carbon Neutral. It is great to see one of our important partners supporting Quorn’s total path to net neutral.”

Tactical Solutions are also pending B Corp accreditation and hope to be recognised with this award in 2022. The B Corp certification is held by over 3,720 companies in over 150 different industries worldwide.
