Melton Building Society Achieves Climate Partner Certification

The Melton Building Society is proud to announce that it has been awarded the esteemed Climate Partner certification, a testament to its dedicated efforts and ongoing commitments to significantly reduce its carbon footprint.

This honour reflects the Society’s proactive approach to going green, including a series of impactful actions and future pledges, including:

A 10% reduction in commuting by 2025, facilitated by an innovative EV scheme for colleagues through salary sacrifice and the installation of 8 free EV charging points.

Transition to exclusive use of green energy by 2024, underpinned by the installation of solar panels and the establishment of a green resource group.

The adoption of a flexible working policy to further reduce commuting emissions.

These initiatives are in alignment with the rigorous 5-step process required for Climate Partner certification:

  1. Carbon Footprints: Melton Building Society has conducted a comprehensive assessment of its corporate carbon footprint (CCF), identifying critical emission sources and strategising mitigation efforts.
  2. Reduction Targets: The Society has set ambitious reduction targets, including sourcing 80% green electricity by 2025 and achieving 100% by 2030.
  3. Reduction Measures: To realise these targets, Melton Building Society has implemented concrete measures, ensuring effective and measurable climate action.
  4. Climate Projects: In addition to internal measures, the Society is financially supporting certified climate projects that adhere to independent audits and contribute to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
  5. Transparency: Melton Building Society is committed to transparently sharing its climate journey, using the ClimatePartner label to openly communicate its actions and achievements.
