One of the UK’s largest construction drone companies from Littleport has become one of the first of its kind to achieve carbon neutral status. 

Sky Revolutions was verified by the United Nations’ framework convention on climate change after offsetting its carbon emissions for last year. 

Company director Ben Gorham said: “Becoming carbon neutral was important not just to our business, but to our whole team.” 

Sky Revolutions, which specialises in aerial imaging and surveying, worked with Carbon Neutral Britain to review their carbon usage through different operations before buying the verified credits.  

Credits are supporting three key projects in 2022, such the Burgos Wind Farm project in the Philippines and the Rice Husk Power project in Cambodia.

One way Sky is achieving carbon-neutral status is by using energy self-sufficient time-lapse cameras powered by solar panel systems. 

The firm, which also uses quick inspection and monitoring services to keep wind and solar farms running, hope they can make greener energy more accessible to more people.

“Achieving carbon neutral status was a great milestone, but it’s the first step in becoming more aware of our impact on the broader environment.”
