This significant milestone highlights the company’s dedication to sustainability and environmental responsibility.

“In today’s world, companies face increasing pressure to demonstrate their commitment to sustainability,” said Ieuan Rosser, CEO at FLS. “With this GLEC-accredited module as part of our emissions manager platform, we are proud to be able to support our clients in their journey towards recording and reducing their carbon footprint and becoming more environmentally and economically sustainable.”
