We have offset our carbon footprint by investing in projects around the world to remove C02e from the atmosphere.
By working closely with Carbon Neutral Britain we have been able to calculate the amount of emissions that we create in the whole of our business, from manufacture to distribution. We are committed to balancing out these emissions by supporting ‘green’ projects. This is how we have become what is known as carbon neutral.
Hydroelectric power in the Amazon, Brazil
The Project improves the supply of electricity with clean, renewable hydroelectric power (a form of energy that harnesses the power of water in motion). As a result it reduces emissions of greenhouse gases (GHG) by avoiding electricity generation by fossil fuel plants connected to grid.
It also contributes towards better working conditions and increases employment opportunities in the area where the project is located. The project will generate 300 new jobs in the region.
Hydroelectric power in Viti Levu, Fiji
The project offsets fossil fuel use and lowers greenhouse gas emissions. It generates ‘green’ power through zero‐emission hydro technology (a form of energy that harnesses the power of water in motion) and therefore reduces CO2 emissions.
Socially it will provide jobs to local communities during and after construction and provide long‐term income to the surrounding villages from the 99‐year land lease in an area where permanent and reliable sources of employment are scarce.
The project will also provide reliable electricity supply and good upkeep and maintenance of roads. Eight villages and two settlements will benefit directly from the improved road and electricity infrastructure.
Burgos wind farm project, Philippines
The largest wind farm in the Philippines. At the time it was built in 2014, it was also considered to be one of the largest wind farms in South East Asia.
This project produces clean energy and displaces generation from other sources that contribute pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions to the environment.
It also results in generation of employment opportunities for both skilled and unskilled labour during construction as well as operation phase. This is as well as, providing training in partnership with universities and government-accredited training facilities in the host Communities.
