More Green Goodness – free publicity here

by on September 22, 2010

As previously discussed in my post dated August 25th, we’ve been looking at ways to help you report on the green benefits of online submission. 

Well our Carbon Calculator is now live, looking good and ready for you to use. 

This is a really useful tool designed specifically for planning to help you measure the benefits of electronic submission and to communicate your environmental commitment to your prospective clients and other stakeholders.

Alongside this we have now launched our Green pledge and Green logo.  Lots of companies have already been in touch to tell us they already submit all their planning applications online and we are sending them out pledges to sign and display to let everyone know their commitment to greener working.  As part of this process we send them a Green logo to display on their website and marketing material and we’re promoting these enlightened companies on the Portal too. 

We have also spoken to companies who want to submit more applications online but need support from us to do so, something we are more than happy to provide in any way we are able to.

If you are currently submitting all your applications online or would like to learn what training and support we have to help you do so please contact our own green goddess Christabel.

The Carbon calculator and green logo are both also applicable to Local Authorities and we are working up a Green pledge to clearly help LPAs communicate that they want their applications to come in electronically.

If you have any other ideas of how we can help you measure or communicate your carbon savings please let us know.

  1. Keep up the good work with the Planning Portal.
    It is the best thing that has ‘ever’ to happen to the Planning System.

    If only the Planning Officers were as efficient as the Planning Portal !
