Green Milestone

by on February 2, 2011

Aztech Architecture have just become the 20th business to take the ‘Carbon Pledge’.

Essentially the pledge represents a promise to submit all planning applications online, thereby reducing the environmental cost of the process. Whilst individually this may seem like a pointless exercise it is worth noting that in 2010 e-planning took more than 20,000 tonnes of CO2 out of the application process. 2.9 tonnes of which came from a single planning application.

In return for saving the planet each business is entitled to use the ‘Planning for a Greener future’ logo on their websites, stationery and marketing material.

Many of the companies display copies of the Pledge on their premises and we publish their details on the Portal.

I’d like to encourage as many companies as possible to use our Carbon Calculator to accurately establish the CO2 savings you have (or might in future) achieve.
You can use this information to then beef up the results in your Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) statements which are seen by many as a means of winning new business in a market increasingly aware of all things green.

To find out more please contact our own jolly green giant, Stuart Mockford.

  1. I applaud the people who are using electronic submission as it saves paper and time and effort, all of which saves costs which can be prohibitive.

    When is this going to be rolled out across the board so that the Planning Inspectorate do the same for all the Appeals?

    On the Isle of Wight there is an Appeal but I cannot find the documentation that supports it on the Planning Inspectorate.

    Am I missing something here?
