Our Environmental Commitments

At Castell Howell we take our commitment to the environment seriously.

Earth Day 2021 is an opportunity to share some of our successes of 2020, and to highlight our targets for 2021 and beyond.

With the advice of Business In the Community and other partners, we’re working on our ambitious Net Zero Action Plan that will be launched in July 2021. We’ve already made progress in reducing our carbon, yet recognise that we have more work to achieve.
