Articles - Aon UK sets the green standard with CEMARS accreditation


 Aon, the risk management business of Aon Corporation (NYSE: AON), in the UK has  demonstrated its commitment to reducing its green house gas (GHG) emissions by become the first company in the insurance industry in the world to be awarded Certified Emissions Measurement and Reduction Scheme (CEMARS) certification.

 CEMARS is a carbon verification scheme that audits an organisation's carbon footprint and certifies that they are reducing emissions year on year and taking steps to mitigate emissions in the future. It is the only scheme in the UK that offers certification to the globally recognised ISO 14064 standard for carbon management which specifies principles and requirements for the measurement and reporting of emissions and removals.

 A key element of the ISO is the requirement for the design, development, management, reporting and verification of an organisation's green house gas inventory.

 Gregory Lowe, sustainability co-ordinator for Aon UK, commented: “Achieving CEMARS certification demonstrates Aon's commitment to reducing our impact on the environment. By reducing carbon emissions, we are transforming Aon into a more sustainable organisation that will mitigate negative environmental impacts."
