The Group is committed to minimising the environmental impact of both its manufacturing processes and its products. However, even with the most responsible approach, some carbon dioxide (CO2) will be released into the atmosphere as an indirect result of factory and selling activities and customers’ use of luminaires.

In 2009, F W Thorpe designed an ambitious carbon-offsetting scheme to help compensate for these emissions. We have chosen to plant trees. Why trees? Trees and other plants absorb CO2 during photosynthesis. One tree grown to maturity in open space can absorb approximately 1 tonne of CO2 over its lifetime. A forest covering many acres can effectively lock up CO2, creating a 'carbon sink'.

The scheme is now accredited under the Woodland Carbon Code.
