A Cost Effective Alternative to London
“Basingstoke is our HQ – the town has excellent transport links and great facilities for our staff”, Wendy Buckley, Commercial Director
Carbon Footprint started full time business in 2007 to provide businesses with assistance and advice in reducing costs by reducing energy usage and emissions, as well as offering help in complying with increasing carbon emissions legislation.
With a growing relevance to all businesses, Carbon Footprint has found its market and its success was recently recognised when they won the New Business of the Year Award at the Basingstoke INSPIRE 08 Awards.
Commercial Director Dr. Wendy Buckley says that location in Basingstoke has certainly contributed to their rapid success, “Basingstoke is a very cost-effective location for us, we have the advantage of great communications and infrastructure but without the costs associated with London. We have great access to clients over the South of England & beyond”.
Founded in Basingstoke, the company has remained here as it has offered not only essential convenience for business but quality of life for staff. “In the business we are in, it is very important for our staff to live and work in a great environment, and we have managed to recruit a talented and well qualified team and access great office accommodation – and we are set to grow” Wendy continues.
Wendy is also keen to emphasise the vital, high quality support the company received from local agencies like Business Link “Their practical assistance, personal attention and enthusiasm was crucial in the early days”.
Carbon Footprint are located at Worting House, which offers flexible serviced office accommodation in picturesque environment on the western outskirts of Basingstoke.
