Totally Fitness goes Carbon Zero
Gym chain Totally Fitness has announced that it is to become Carbon Zero.
The company has revealed that it is working with co2balance.com in order to calculate the gym chain's 'carbon footprint'. Following this, Totally Fitness will take action to reduce the company's emissions and offset the remaining amount.
This can be done through a number of sustainable purchasing schemes, including energy efficiency projects in Kenya, renewable energy projects in East Africa and tree planting across Europe.
"We all leave an impression on the environment, and it is up to companies to take action to make it a positive impression, rather than negative, and that is why Totally Fitness has taken this decision to go CarbonZero," said Emma Peoples from Totally Fitness.
"In addition to top quality fitness products, people want to buy equipment from companies that are proactive in looking after the environment, and so we are delighted to be able to offer this to our clients through our new CarbonZero status."
Suzanne Longworth, from co2balance.com, added: "co2balance's philosophy is based on minimisation of energy use and reduction of the Carbon Footprint before offsetting."
