Brook is delighted to announce that they have joined forces with their new Carbon Partner Auditel to deliver their objective of becoming Carbon Neutral while working towards their objective of reaching Net Zero.
Brook is a national charity supporting people with their sexual health and wellbeing. We offer a range of services to support our mission of helping people to live healthier lives. Brook fights for everyone’s right to safe, confidential, accessible healthcare, no matter who they are. We challenge stigma, amplify voices and provide lifelong support that meets the diverse needs of our communities.
Sally Hutchings, Brook’s Director of Business Support comments. “Brook recognises that environment and health and wellbeing are linked, and that we have a responsibility to all to sustain the environment for the future. As an organisation dedicated to health and wellbeing, we wish to minimise the harmful effects of our activities wherever and whenever practicable, consistent with maintaining high standards of care for the users of our services. As part of this responsibility, we’re excited to have started a programme of work to measure our Carbon Footprint and we will produce a Carbon Reduction Plan to support our journey towards Carbon Net Zero.

Our largest client demographic is young people under the age of 25, a group that we know care deeply about the environment and are concerned about the impacts of climate change. It is also important to the commissioners of our services. As local authorities and other public sector bodies strive to achieve their own net zero targets, they understandably expect their suppliers to share this commitment and support them on their journey, which is something we are only too happy to do.”
Gillian Gibbon, Carbon Auditor at Auditel added, “We are delighted to be assisting Brook on their carbon journey to net zero. We have been working with them for many years helping ensure they are getting value for money from their supplies. We can now look forward to continuing working with the team and their supply chain to help them achieve an industry recognised standard of Carbon Neutrality.”
