Carbon Retirement Ltd has been chosen by a judging panel including Deborah Meaden and other leading entrepreneurs such as Bebo Founder Michael Birch as a winner of Smarta.coms inaugural Smarta 100, and was also selected as one of the Top 5 for Ethics from companies included in the list.
The carbon offsetting company Carbon Retirement was founded in 2008 to make a difference in the carbon offsetting market. The companys aim is to provide a reliable and transparent way for people and organisations to take responsibility for their unavoidable emissions, which they achieve by retiring EU allowances from the EU emission trading scheme.
The Smarta 100 is the ultimate business accolade, recognizing the UKs smartest small businesses. Smarta.com has uncovered remarkable companies who have gone the extra mile to differentiate themselves from the market or found clever ways to compete, from their marketing plan to their ethical stance. The result is a fascinating insight into the unique business ideas that are thriving in the current economic climate.
The finalists proved to the judges that they have what it takes to run a successful venture, from spotting a new opportunity to making it a reality.
