Yet another environmental certification that I haven’t heard of…
Transport for London continue their great work in reducing their impact on the environment. TfL Head Office buildings, managed by their Facilities Operations Division, has been officially awarded the Carbon Trust Standard for Carbon.
The Carbon Trust Standard provides recognition for achieving clear reductions in carbon emissions. TfL were awarded the standard for their efforts in reducing their carbon emissions by 9.6% (based on the compliance period of 1 April 2015 to 31 March 2017).
Some of the projects that have enabled them to achieve the Carbon Trust Standard include:
- A BMS (Building Management System) upgrade at Oxford Circus House
- A chiller replacement at Windsor House
- A chiller refurbishment at 172 Buckingham Palace Road
- A calorifiers replacement at Baker Street
- ClimaCheck performance analyser installed at four sites to assist in chiller performance analysis and refurbishment planning
- Replacement of MR16 Lamps for LED at Pier Walk
The Carbon Trust Standard requires organisations to keep reducing their carbon emissions and to recertify every two years. This was a recertification of the Standard, with TfL being a Carbon Trust Standard bearer since 2009
