Here's some feedback from CFG members, clients and partners relating to initiatives that we have been involved with.
Legal and General Investment Management appointed the Carbon Free Group to undertake a ‘Zero Carbon Study’ for a large mixed-use commercial property asset in Manchester, UK, which involved Electric Vehicle charging analysis and modelling across the portfolio of properties. Jae and the team worked diligently to understand L&G's corporate objectives and familiarise themselves with the property and the broader portfolio before undertaking the work. With a commercial and common-sense approach to implementing measures to reduce carbon usage and introduce innovative on-site generation options, they produced a great overview of what could be achieved at the asset, including recommendations for Electric Vehicle charging infrastructure. The team's professionalism and user-friendliness throughout the process made it an enjoyable and collaborative experience. With the insights and recommendations provided by the Carbon Free Group, Legal and General Investment Management can confidently move forward to provide sustainable solutions for their clients and staff, empowering them to adopt more sustainable practices for the benefit of the environment and the community. We wholeheartedly recommend the Carbon Free Group to industry peers looking to make a positive impact on the environment.
The Carbon Free Group has been instrumental in building and implementing the Collaborative College Fund (CCF) Net-Zero Strategy creation and solutions assessments, Biodiversity Net-Gain, and Sustainable Procurement program with EKC Group, Midkent College, and Morley College. They were tasked with tight deadlines, liaising with multiple organisations and consultants, and navigating a wide variety of documents, methodologies, and formats.
It has been a pleasure to work with their team of experts who place customer service amongst the forefront of the overall experience. They are highly professional, consistently meeting deadlines with very high-level deliverables and they are deeply passionate at the same time. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend the Carbon Free Group and look forward to working again with them in the future.
The Carbon Free Group (CFG) provided an excellent critique of the commercial feasibility of a potential new product. This insight was essential for our research group to form a coherent business strategy and secure additional funding. CFG’s technical, business and IP expertise in the green space provided an efficient "one-stop-shop" that delivered a greater return from a limited budget. Despite the COVID pandemic, CFG maintained dialogue remotely, generating a true sense of collaboration. We look forward to working with CFG in the near future.
Electric Corby first approached the Carbon Free Group (CFG) to help develop an energy strategy for a pilot project called “ZEB1 (Zero Energy Bills)”. Through engagement with CFG and its members it was possible to pull together both the team and the technologies to ensure that the project could be successfully implemented and the best possible project outcome achieved.
This collaborative process has led to the creation of Glendale Ecohomes, an SPV created by the consortium of CFG members to deliver, zero-carbon smart homes at a scale and cost to compete with mainstream housing development. This would not have been possible without extensive knowledge base and network made available to us through Carbon Free Group.
The Big Clean Switch campaign is an active supporter of the mission and purpose of the Carbon Free Group which provides us with access to thought leaders, clean technology innovations in the sector, introductions to new opportunities, plus insight and leadership through their event series. We’d encourage other small businesses to connect and get involved.
Clean Energy UK supports the Carbon Free Group mission to decarbonise the built environment. Our partnership provides us with access to new ideas and opportunities for encouraging business to transition to clean energy.
Jae’s key note presentation opened IEMA’s and GACSO’s Sustainability Conference with a bang! Compelling and hard hitting and almost impossible to argue with. Rich with data and intelligence, this was high octane stuff beautifully delivered with passion and humour. A wonderful way to start a conference.
The Carbon Free Group and HermeticaBlack have recently collaborated on independent research into Modern Methods of Construction, mainly focused on Off Site Manufacturing and its application for sustainable housing. Anthony Morgan of the Carbon Free Group provided invaluable insight and support which resulted in a big value report that the client was very pleased with. We continue to collaborate with the Carbon Free Group in this area and are looking to develop and deliver a disruptive solution for a number of clients. This would not have been possible without input from Anthony and the Carbon Free Group
