Practice Building launched a Net Zero Optics programme at 100% Optical to support optical practices in reducing their carbon footprint and plastic waste.
Any practice that successfully followed the programme was awarded a certificate and provided with window and digital displays to promote the accreditation to patients.
Practices can aim for three certificates: certified carbon neutral eyewear, certified net zero carbon and certified net zero plastic.
Andy Clark, founder of Practice Building, said: ‘On the internet there are now many Net Zero checklists for businesses which can prove daunting. We became frustrated and sat down to develop our own Net Zero programme to make the complex issues simple to implement. A lot can be achieved to save the planet if we all do our bit and don’t wait for the politicians.’
