Uk’s first carbon neutral schoolwear
We commissioned an independent audit of all our business process to identify the amount of greenhouse gasses emitted over a 12 month period.
To offset these emissions Trutex have invested in a Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) project that reduces greenhouse emissions by preventing landfill gas entering the atmosphere and turns them into usable green energy.
