CO2 insights for your business

In a bid to fight climate change, the government has set a target to get the UK to carbon zero by 2050.  We’ve partnered up with Zellar to help our members get to carbon zero faster.

Zellar is a new technology company that has a mission to get 1 million small businesses to carbon zero in the next 10 years. If they succeed they will save over 100 million tons of CO2 emissions!  We’ve pledged to join them in their mission.  It would be great if you joined us.

Could you be a carbon zero ambassador?

We’re looking for 5 members to become carbon zero ambassadors to lead the way in the farm retail sector in reducing our carbon emissions. You’ll be involved in a PR campaign led by our carbon zero partner. Read more below…
