Positive steps to reducing our Carbon footprint

Ray Parry playgrounds take positive and responsible steps to reduce our CO2 emissions as much as possible and then offset the remaining unavoidable emissions.

Offsetting plays a vital role in combating climate change.

We are pleased to say the we have offset our carbon footprint for 2022. We have worked with Carbon Footprint Ltd to calculate our carbon footprint and offset it through their tree planting scheme.

We offset 21 tonne CO2e through planting trees in the west midlands. This is also buddied with the same amount being offset in the amazon rain forest, through Brazil Reducing deforestation. The Tree Planting projects are paired with Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) approved carbon credits to guarantee the carbon offsetting.

Trees planted are native broad leaf species you can help to preserve the UK’s environment and biodiversity. Planting takes place in school locations and other biodiversity sites. All trees are high quality whips.

Carbon footprint Ltd work with Carbon offsetting projects. Helping to combat global climate change, as well as caring for local communities. Offsetting provides a mechanism to reduce greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions in the most cost-effective and economically-efficient manner. Offsetting plays a vital role in combating climate change.

Over 95% of all the products we sell are manufactured within the UK, and we champion made in Britain. Where possible the materials used for our products are made from recycled materials and can be recycled in the future.

We strongly believe in supporting local business. All our employment is local and wherever we work we aim to use local suppliers. i.e raw materials, concrete, skips, welfare etc. By doing this we help to keep down our miles and emissions, as well as lower the overall impact we create.

Buy local, Support a local economy, Minimise your carbon footprint.
