We know that at the core of any offsetting programme is a genuine emissions reduction. Around this our clients want programmes that align with their core business, tell great stories and make a difference to communities around the world.
Our approach will review your commercial, environmental and CSR objectives before finding projects that make a difference to the environment, your business and the communities they serve. Whether it is a wind project that ensures security of energy supply to local villages, a hydro project that protects river ecology, or a stove project that improves maternal and child health - our projects really do make a difference.
Choosing the right project or portfolio of projects is key to getting commercial benefit from your offset investment.
By working with you to identify your commercial, environmental and CSR objectives, we can help you:
Tell stories of real people who are benefitting from carbon projects you support;
Draw parallels between your reduction achievements and similar carbon projects;
Showcase offsetting projects and the countries in which you operate;
Link social benefits, such as improved education, from carbon projects with your CSR programme.
