REDUCING OUR CARBON EMISSIONS
Reducing carbon emissions is critical for mitigating the impacts of climate change. Climate change is caused by the release of greenhouse gases, including carbon dioxide, into the atmosphere. These gases trap heat and cause the planet's temperature to rise, leading to a range of negative impacts such as sea level rise, more frequent and severe natural disasters, and changes in weather patterns.
By reducing our carbon emissions, we can help slow down the pace of climate change and reduce the severity of its impacts. This can help protect vulnerable communities, ecosystems, and species from the worst effects of climate change. In addition, reducing our carbon emissions can also have co-benefits such as improving air quality, reducing dependence on fossil fuels, and promoting innovation and new economic opportunities in clean energy technologies.
REDUCTION TARGET PLAN
Our organisation is committed to reducing our greenhouse gas emissions in order to mitigate the impacts of climate change. Our target is to reduce our emissions by 50% below our baseline levels by 2030. We recognize that this is an ambitious goal, but we believe it is necessary to contribute to the global effort to address climate change.
CARBON OFFSETTING PROJECTS
Through the Carbon Neutral Britain Climate Fund™, have offset our total carbon emissions through internationally certified carbon offsetting projects. Certified via the Verra - Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), the Gold Standard - Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER) or the United Nations - Certified Emission Reductions (CER) programmes, the projects have also been selected based on their direct and indirect impact around the world - not just in offsetting, but also in supporting education, employment and clean water, as well as having net positive impact on the local wildlife and ecology. As the three largest, and most regulated voluntary offsetting standards used by organisations and even countries in their emissions reductions - all measurements and tonnes of CO₂e offset are accurate, and verified.
