Jonathan Martin CEO explains, “YMCA Trinity Group is a local charity that has been at the heart of community transformation in Peterborough, Cambridgeshire and Suffolk since 1852. Above all, our focus has always been on building proactive and sustainable communities with an emphasis on supporting Young People and helping them to realise their full potential on their journey from dependence to independence.

We work with individuals and families to build better futures through our extensive range of programmes and interventions which include Housing, Childcare, Health & Fitness, Youth Projects, Youth Justice Services, Mental Health Counselling, Employability Programmes, Volunteering and much more. Our services provide opportunities for all young people, whether they’re facing difficult and challenging issues or simply looking for a new direction.

We deliver our programmes across the whole of Suffolk and Cambridgeshire, with key local provision across the region.” Rowena Kerslake Deputy CEO continues. “YMCA Trinity Group is committed to a net zero position. We’re partly driven by our environmental responsibility to the communities we are part of, but also by our clients demands for us to do better for their future.

Auditel have calculated our Carbon Footprint as 1613.37 tCO2e and we can now see where we need to reduce our emissions. YMCA Trinity Group is committed to a net zero position. We’re partly driven by our environmental responsibility to the communities we are part of, but also by our clients’ demands for us to do better for their future.

As a global movement, YMCA is committed to advancing global conservation and responsibility to reduce the effects of climate change through youth-led education programmes and initiatives that improve environmental awareness.

In this global and national context, YMCA Trinity Group is now developing a holistic sustainability and net zero strategy, which will commit to improving the lives of the local communities it services, especially young people.

Young people will feel the impacts of climate change most prominently throughout their lives, and as an organisation working closely with youth, YMCA Trinity Group can improve the planet they will inherit while equipping them with the knowledge and skills they need to pursue their passions and make a difference in the world.”

Gillian Gibbon, Carbon Auditor at Auditel added. “I am delighted to be working with YMCA Trinity Group, a genuine champion of sustainability in the charity sector. I have worked with them for many years helping ensure they are getting the very best value for money from their suppliers and now I look forward to working with the team to help them achieve an industry recognised standard of verified carbon neutrality.

I love their sustainability and net zero strategy and their ambition and commitment to minimise the impact they have on the environment.”
