In 2021 we commissioned Carbon Neutral Britain – an expert in the calculation of CO2e, to understand what our carbon footprint was, where our emissions occur, and how we can reduce these as a self storage provider with 23 locations in the UK. From this report, we had set our goals and commitment to becoming a more sustainable self storage UK business.
The latest report shows our total carbon footprint is 431.95 tCO2e, that’s a 30% reduction compared to the total of 615 tCO2e in our last report! We are very proud to have made such progress in just 12 months because of dedication to our sustainability programmes:
In August 2021 we became a carbon neutral company by offsetting our emissions through our investment in Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER) and Certified Emission Reductions (CER) programmes. These range from reforestation programmes in South America to woodland management initiatives at home in the UK.
This year we continued our effort to make a positive impact on climate change by offsetting an extra 15% of emissions via Climate and Woodland Funds which makes us a Carbon Negative British Company.

We have made great progress so far and we will continue our journey to minimise the impact on the environment with the following goals and projects:
As well as our aim to reduce our carbon footprint, we have recently partnered with (more:trees) to help sequester CO2 emissions. For every customer’s review on Google, we are planting a tree via (more: trees), who are involved in global tree planting projects.
