Bath manufacturer BC Designs is working in partnership with Earthly to become a carbon neutral company by 2025.
The evaluation stage is already underway to calculate the company’s current carbon impact and identify initial areas for reduction.
It will take into account the business as a whole, along with product manufacturing and transport.
BC Designs will then invest in science-backed natural projects to offset any remaining carbon footprint.
The projects include stopping deforestation in Cambodia and Kenya, Rainforest protection in Peru, along with reforestation and poverty alleviation in Madagascar.
BC Designs has recently expanded its operation with the opening of a 75sqm workshop to cater for increased demand.
Managing director Darren Allison said: “This is a significant milestone in the history of BC Designs.
“Never has it been more important to play an active role in the fight against climate change, and in partnering with Earthly, BC Designs will become a carbon neutral company within the next five years.
“Partnering with Earthly was a natural fit for us. Not only do they offer projects that make a difference to the health of the plant, but also facilitate jobs and incomes for some of the poorest countries in the world.
“Once we have reached our goal which is now embedded within our business plan, our aim is to become a carbon positive company; taking more carbon out of the atmosphere than we produce.”
Earthly also work with the likes of Planet Organic, Neal’s Yard Remedies, The Body Shop and Garnier.
BC Designs was established in 1999 by British manufacturer Barrie Cutchie and manufactures luxury freestanding baths from a variety of materials, including its own Cian solid surface.
