Komfort is pleased to announce that as part of SIG has been awarded the Carbon Trust Standard. This is an important achievement as not only does it independently validate our efforts to reduce our carbon consumption, it also demonstrates our ongoing commitment to reducing our emissions year on year.
Certification by the Carbon Trust and the efforts put in to achieve the Standard will help Komfort to achieve the objectives set by the Carbon Reduction Commitment.
The Carbon Trust Standard was developed by the Carbon Trust in 2007/08 to encourage good practice in carbon measurement, management and reduction by businesses and public sector organisations.

The Standard was developed in consultation with leading businesses and public sector organisations. It is informed by the Carbon Trust's experience of working with thousands of UK businesses to implement effective carbon management strategies. The Standard also incorporates qualitative criteria developed by a predecessor scheme - the Energy Efficiency Accreditation Scheme.
