Carbon offsets / carbon offsetting projects
Carbon offsets provide a reliable and immediate tool for use alongside internal changes, to ensure your organisation meets its carbon reduction commitments. Supporting our verified carbon offsets provides essential finance to renewable energy and resource conservation projects which would not otherwise happen, enabling you to meet your carbon reduction target, take leadership, differentiate from your competitors, and engage your customers and clients.
To find out more about our range of carbon offsets and how your organisation can support them to reduce your carbon footprint and achieve your business goals, contact us by email or telephone +44 (0)20 7833 6000. You can also register for our free carbon reduction newsletter and view our carbon offset project videos.
As well as carbon reduction, these carbon offsets benefit communities, biodiversity and/or animal conservation.
Supporting these projects enables you to meet your carbon reduction targets, as well as providing positive associations for your brand, product or service so you can differentiate from your competition.
These carbon offsets are equally effective projects, but often have less additional benefits and a lower price per tonne of CO2.
Many organisations choose a combination of cost-effective carbon offsetting projects and carbon offsets with additional benefits, to gain maximum impact and value whilst still meeting their carbon reduction target.
