We are honoured to be announced Best Offset Retailer by Environmental Finance for the sixth consecutive year. The award, voted for by carbon market industry professionals, recognises our continual commitment to quality and innovation in delivering solutions to our clients’ environmental and sustainability requirements.
We are delighted to have been selected by BNY Mellon as their renewable energy and carbon offset partner for their carbon neutral programme. Using Guarantees of Origin, PowerPlus products and carbon offsets from Natural Capital Partners, BNY Mellon is carbon neutral in 2015 and will remain carbon neutral in 2016.
As part of its ongoing commitment to carbon neutrality, the firm is partnering with Natural Capital Partners to support an innovative 10-year community reforestation project in Sub-Saharan Africa. The project will be working with approximately 8,000 famers in Uganda and Kenya to plant two million trees that will sequester 220,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide over the next 10 years. Freshfields’ Reforestation in East Africa Programme (REAP) will not only offset the firm’s global carbon footprint, but also deliver a number of important sustainable development benefits to the local communities.
