Case Study: RfM Transform and Rabbit Hill Business Park

Rabbit Hill Business Park, nestled in the heart of the Yorkshire countryside, is a forward-thinking business community dedicated to sustainability. The owner Richard Kay and his team are pioneers in adopting green practices and the entire site has recently become carbon-negative.

Small Businesses Can Transform the World!

Meet our clients at Rabbit Hill. A busy and industrial business park located in Yorkshire, In 2022, its owner Richard Kay, concerned with the carbon footprint of the park, embarked on a mission to measure and reduce its carbon footprint and thereby set a new standard in environmental responsibility. To help achieve this ambitious goal, Rabbit Hill collaborated with the RfM team. This partnership focused on meticulously understanding, assessing and measuring the business park’s carbon footprint, and highlighting the subsequent recommendations for improvement.

The Challenge
Rabbit Hill Business Park, situated in the beautiful countryside between Harrogate and York, aimed to reinforce its commitment to sustainability by becoming carbon-negative. No small feat for a busy rural business park! The owners sought expert guidance to accurately measure their carbon footprint and explore effective strategies to further reduce the park’s environmental impact over the next 12 months.

The Solution
With a practical understanding of the latest environmental regulations and adhering to the Greenhouse Gas Protocols, we set about creating a comprehensive carbon audit for Rabbit Hill Business Park. We performed an in-depth analysis of the park's energy use, waste management, and carbon offset initiatives, such as their successful solar panel installations and extensive tree planting efforts. This collaborative effort pinpointed key areas for improvement and solidified Rabbit Hill’s status as a carbon-negative business park (link to their website)

RfM’s carbon audit has given us a clear path to further enhance our sustainability practices. The collaboration with Tony and his team has been invaluable, helping us to identify practical steps to reduce our carbon footprint and confirm we are on the right track - Richard Kay, Owner, Rabbit Hill Business Park

Working with Rabbit Hill Park has been incredibly rewarding. It's great to support businesses that are genuinely committed to making a positive environmental impact. Helping a large business park measure and maintain carbon-negative status is a testament to what can be achieved by businesses everywhere.” - Tony Backhouse, MD, RfM Transform
