dock10, the UK's leading television facility, has had its building verified as net zero carbon. It is part of a cluster of buildings at Media City that constitutes the highest cluster of net zero carbon buildings in the UK. dock10's buildings achieved net zero carbon status after being third party verified against the UK Green Building Council's 2019 definition. The remaining emissions of dock10's buildings will be offset through a Verified Carbon Standard project twinned with tree-planting in the Northwest, further supporting the #BuildBackBetter agenda, creation of the Northern Forest and ensuring that the benefits are kept as local as possible.
Andrew Culley, Chief Operating Officer at dock10, said: "dock10 is proud that its buildings are net zero carbon. Working in an industry that reaches almost every person on the planet brings a responsibility to lead by example. We strive for sustainability across all our business areas, from eliminating single-use plastics to helping our customers save energy in our offices and studios - our systems are regularly and independently assessed against national and international best-practice standards. Having our buildings independently-verified as net zero carbon demonstrates tangible results for how we're improving the sustainability of our assets and supporting the transition to low-carbon communities."
