Our certification recognises continuous improvement, encourages action and builds an empowered community of eco conscious businesses who make a positive difference.

Business Statement

Barkers are a leading ethical procurement consultancy and sister company, BWS, offers professional bid writing services. Being certified carbon neutral has been a key priority for our businesses as we strive to lessen our environmental impact and uphold the values and principles that are intrinsic to both Barkers and BWS.

A focus on sustainability builds on our promise to deliver social value – Barkers are three times award winners in recognition of our social value work – and we are committed to empowering our clients to actively embed social value into their core procurement practice.

Reforestation

In order to avert a climate catastrophe, research shows we must take CO2e out of the atmosphere. Inventors around the world are working on big machines to suck carbon out of the air and capture it underground. Meanwhile, nature already built those machines for us: They’re called trees, and they are a crucial part of protecting our climate.

Reduce Greenhouse Gas Emissions

Future Technology

Let’s face it, our fossil fuel-based system needs an upgrade. Instead of spewing CO2e until we run out of dead dinosaurs to burn, let’s go all-in on renewable technology now. That’s why solar is so important: it can bring electricity to millions while keeping fossil fuels in the ground.

Carbon Footprint Offsetting

Social Impact

Nearly half of the world still cooks over open fires, which is bad for the planet and bad for human lives. Air pollution from inefficient wood-burning stoves contributes to millions of deaths each year. These clean cook stoves, developed with the community, burn efficiently with less fuel, protecting people and the planet.
