Woodbridge Tide Mill achieves Gold Level Suffolk Carbon Charter again
Following a further assessment of Woodbridge Tide Mill the Suffolk Carbon Charter panel has decided to renew its Gold level award of the Suffolk Carbon Charter. The award was first given to the Tide Mill in 2015.
The Carbon Charter is awarded to companies that are monitoring and reducing their carbon emissions; it is intended to provide public recognition of those involved in making Suffolk the Greenest County. The Gold Charter is only awarded to those whose are “an exemplar of low carbon management”, and demonstrating significant reductions in carbon emissions and championing the environmental agenda.
The Panel was impressed with Tide Mill Museum’s significant efforts made and the thought that has gone into managing the Museum in an exemplary way to improve energy efficiency, community engagement and waste management.
John Carrington, Chair of the Woodbridge Tide Mill Charitable Trust, said: “At a time when the Mill, like so many attractions, has had to close and forego valuable visitor revenue this is uplifting news. We’re very proud that Suffolk Carbon Charter has chosen to recognise the Mill for its environmental significance. The Mill is the quintessence of low energy, low mileage, local food production and the Trustees are immensely grateful for the work our team has done to justify this Charter Mark ”
He went on to thank the East of England Coop, one of only two Pathfinder Partners of Suffolk Carbon Charter, who sponsored the Tide Mill for the award, some of whose local stores stock Tide Mill flour.
