In 2023 the Lotus Drivers Club signed up to Carbon Capture, which utilises the Woodland Trust’s Woodland Carbon scheme to mitigate the CO2 emissions generated by the production, storage and distribution of the paper we purchase. An additional £8.50 is paid for each tonne of paper bought. This is passed on to the Trust to fund the planting of trees, which can absorb carbon that would otherwise be released into the atmosphere.

We want to leave the very smallest footprint possible, give back and protect the places that mean the most. There's always more to do on this journey and we're only just getting started. If you have any questions or feedback regarding our present processes on responsibility, get in touch.
