We are aware that some schools will filter this website as it classed as 'social networking' rather than 'professional networking'. We have produced a letter which can be downloaded and sent as an attachment on requests for unblocking at school level. The person to contact will vary between local authorities. If in doubt, ring your County Hall.
Please add an image to your PAGE so that we can produce a more welcoming look to the home page. Your real name would be better than a 'nickname': this is a community of and for professionals.

From 1990 to 2050 the UK’s target is to reduce its annual carbon emission by 80%.
Over 65% of UK carbon emissions are created by businesses.
The Carbon Trust Standard is awarded to companies who successfully reduce their carbon emissions. 500 businesses currently bear the Standard and are reducing their carbon emissions by more than enough to achieve the 2050 target.
If you want to encourage all UK businesses to actively reduce their carbon emissions and prove it, visit the Carbon Trust Standard website and click YES - http://www.carbontruststandard.com/pages/cutcarbon
