The British Best Control Association (BPCA) is a leading UK trade association, representing organisations with a professional interest in pest management. Understanding and measuring its carbon footprint is the first step in identifying ways to minimise its impact on the planet. Over the next year, the trade association will be working towards reducing its carbon emissions and sharing its journey with its community to inspire others. By being more strategic about its environmental responsibility, the BPCA will be able to significantly increase its positive impact and hope to encourage continual improvements within its community.
Through Planet Mark, the company is protecting an area of endangered rainforest thanks to Cool Earth; a charity working alongside rainforest communities to halt deforestation. Its pledge through Cool Earth goes directly towards supporting the Asháninka community in Central Peru.
It is also helping the Eden Project – an educational charity building connections with each other and the living world, exploring how we can work together towards a better future.
As part of the Planet Mark certification, the BPCA has committed to making a year-on-year reduction.
