Cullinan Studio recognises the impact that its activities make on the environment.
In 2008 a newly devised Environmental Management System sought to build on previous good policies and initiatives developed through the ethos of the practice to attain ISO 14001 accreditation. Through this scheme the practice began to measure its energy and resources consumption and subsequent carbon emissions.
From January 2009 a footprint has been produced annually. Since 2006 members of Cullinans have taken part in recording their own personal carbon footprints to show our personal commitment to the environment. A detailed account of all energy consumption is contained within the office energy report.
Over the last few years Cullinan employees have each completed their own personal carbon footprints. The following charts detail all employees and their own footprints. Each year of entry is for the previous calender year period (2009 figures are completed in 2010 etc).
