AN Ipswich-based call centre has moved closer to its aim of becoming carbon neutral after teaming up with a company which creates woodland.

Call Connection has purchased trees from East Bergholt-based Oaklore Ltd, a firm which creates carbon offsetting woodland, after planting 500 trees at Gippewyk Park in Chantry in conjunction with Ipswich Borough Council and Otley College.

After Call Connection was told it needed to plant 840 trees to reach its carbon neutral goal, it bought the remaining amount from Oaklore.

A spokesperson for Oaklore said: “The fact that Call Connection are willing to plant trees in their own region, rather than Scotland or abroad with land prices in East Anglia so high is of great benefit and advantageous to the company and our region.”
