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.

OUR PROJECTS


Project 1088: Hydroelectric Power in Chile
 
This project was developed by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) to promote energy-efficient lighting in India, thus reducing the electricity, and therefore carbon emissions generated from the grid. When established, around 76% of India’s electricity was generated from coal – and so by reducing energy consumption and efficiency, over 35,000 tonnes of CO2e are offset each year.

 


Project 1163: Cook Stove Project in Malaw
 
The Salkhit Wind Farm is the first grid-connected wind farm in Mongolia. The project generates renewable electricity using wind power resources and supplies it to the Mongolian central electricity system grid to meet the growing electricity demand. The project reduces greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions by avoiding CO₂ emissions from electricity generation from fossil fuel power plants that are supplied to the Grid. The expected total annual net electricity generation of the Salkhit Wind Farm is 168.5 GWh with an annual emission reduction of 178,778 tonnes of CO₂ equivalent (tCO₂e).

 


Project 1162: Energy Efficient Lighting in India
 
This project was developed by the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) to promote energy-efficient lighting in India, thus reducing the electricity, and therefore carbon emissions generated from the grid. When established, around 76% of India’s electricity was generated from coal – and so by reducing energy consumption and efficiency, over 35,000 tonnes of CO2e are offset each year.


Project 1165: Salkhit Wind Farm in Mangolia
 
Located in the Tinguiririca River upper valley, this Hydroelectric project is around 120km south of Santiago, Chile. Known as La Confluencia, the 163 MW run of river hydro power plant utilizes the hydrological resources of the Tinguiririca, Portillo and Azufre Rivers, in a run of river scheme to generate and supply zero emission energy to the Chilean central electricity grid (SIC). The power plant generates certified emission reductions (CERs) by displacing electricity generation from grid connected fossil fuel-fired power plants that would otherwise be generating electricity.
