beyond carbon neutral

Because small business can lead the way in carbon neutrality

Carbon Neutral Businesses

The businesses on this page have made the effort to become carbon neutral. Using one of the many available Carbon Calculators online, they have worked out what their Carbon Footprint is and then offset it using one of the many Carbon Offset projects available.  Some have larger footprints.  Some already have tiny footprints.  All are now working to reduce their footprint.  We're delighted that they have joined us.

Beyond Carbon Neutral believes in trust. The businesses on this page have been trusted by us to have not cheated or scrimped on their calculations or offsetting in any way. However, as a non-profit, entirely voluntary organisation, we do not have resources independently verify these businesses. They should be considered as self-certified. If you want to discuss their carbon neutrality, please content the businesses themselves directly.

MD Wealth Management

MD Wealth Management

MD Wealth Management was established by Michael Duale after he became frustrated dealing with financial advisers who hid behind jargon, complexity and lacked any warmth or personal touch. Finances are after all a deeply personal matter. Understanding that people often need advice at key moments in life, some hugely exciting, some more emotionally challenging, Michael recognised the need for a much more human approach to financial planning.

Our mission is to change the perception of wealth management - moving away from this image of stuffy, unfriendly advisers putting profits ahead of a clients’ best interests, towards the approach we feel our clients deserve - professional yes, expert in our field, yes but not to the detriment of creating genuinely friendly, caring, enduring relationships with every client.

Web Alliance

Web Alliance

Specialists in Bespoke Software Development, Ecommerce Applications and Mobile Apps.  We don't believe that the best systems are bought ‘off the shelf'. Such systems may be cheap. They may, at first sight, seem to fit the bill. But there could be hidden dangers.

  • Do these systems address every one of your business's particular needs?
  • Can you afford expensive amendments to the initial product?
  • What will the cost be to your business if your new system crashes or malfunctions?
  • Error-free bespoke systems bringing you peace of mind
     
    To be sure your systems work as well as they should, you'll be much better off with a bespoke software system - one that's designed with your business in mind. One that will take your business to where you need it to be. A system that will give you what we all crave - peace of mind!
