Online agency Hortons is the latest agency to off-set its environmental impact.
Hortons operates from a non-branch office in central Leicester with self employed agents leading their own businesses with the Hortons brand and using the company’s IT platform.
The agents cover much of the Midlands.
Hortons has also joined forces with Ecologi, an environmental company focused on reducing CO2 in the atmosphere.
The agency has pledged to off-set its CO2 emission through funding eco projects and planting a tree for every new property put on the market.
“As a company we've started to become more conscious about our impact on the environment. It’s something that many of our employees are mindful of individually, so we have collectively decided to become carbon neutral as a mark of our commitment to a greener and more environmentally friendly world” says agency chief Adam Horton.
“Alongside this pledge, we also use sustainable for sale boards which are made from recycled materials.”
Explaining the Team Feel Good - a collection of committed employees working on green projects - Horton adds: “Moving forwards, we will be looking at other ways we can reduce our impact on the environment. We recognise as our company grows, so will the challenge to remain carbon neutral and so our commitment will be ever evolving.”
