The Benefits of Becoming a Climate Leader

Carbon Neutral Business

Increasing Revenue

By becoming a Carbon Neutral Business - you will differentiate yourself in the market as an Industry Leader tackling Climate Change.

As well as having a bigger impact by offsetting your environmental footprint completely - many of our clients have found that Carbon Offsetting is a more cost effective way to reduce their environmental impact compared to other strategies (such as electric vehicles, waste management, energy consumption, production changes etc).

In addition, it is well documented how environmentally conscious brands attract more customers who are willing to pay more for an environmentally friendly product or service.

Carbon Neutral Business

Engaging Stakeholders

As a Carbon Neutral Business, you will have a competitive advantage in engaging with, and motivating staff with an issue that matters.

Almost half the UK workforce (42%) now want to work for an organisation that has a positive impact on the world, according to research carried out by consultancy Global Tolerance in 2015. The survey of more than 2,000 people found 44% thought meaningful work that helped others was more important than a high salary and 36% would work harder if their company benefitted society.

Becoming carbon neutral will also provide a new opportunity to engage with your customers and community with a positive new directive.

Carbon Neutral Business

Planning for the Future

As a climate leader, you will demonstrate to your employees, investors, and business community as a whole that you are planning for the future and voluntarily undertaking climate action.

In addition, you will mitigate the risks of HMRC proposed changes to the Carbon Emissions Tax and any future emissions reporting requirements - with a Carbon Footprint that has already been calculated, verified and offset.

All of our business offsetting projects are purchased carbon credits through the United Nations Certified Emission Reductions (CER) programmes, industry recognised credits audited and verified by the UN, ratified in the Kyoto Protocol.

How it Works

Experts in Calculation and Verification to the ISO 14064 and GHG Protocol Emissions Standard, our experienced team will calculate your Carbon Footprint - measured in Tonnes of Carbon Dioxide Equivalent (CO²e).

We will help reduce your emissions, and then offset your remaining Carbon Footprint with certified projects in Britain and around the world that reduce the amount of CO²e in the earths atmosphere.

Our Projects

100% Verified Carbon Credits and Full Transparency

All of our carbon offsetting projects are verified to the highest standards via the four largest Carbon Certifications in the world - the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), Gold Standard Voluntary Emission Reductions (VER), UK and EU Emissions Trading Standard (EU + UK ETS), and the United Nations Certified Emission Reductions (CER) programmes.

Regulated, verified and third party audited, the international carbon credits that we use are exactly the same credits as those used by multinational organisations, and even countries in their emission reduction schemes around the world - so you can be confident you are supporting vital projects, with accurate emissions reductions.

Trust and Transparency is also a core value of our organisation, and as a result all business customers receive Carbon Offsetting Certification for their chosen offsetting. Higher than most charities, we ensure 80% of our subscription budget goes directly towards our tree planting and offsetting projects, 10% to administrative costs, and 10% on fundraising and marketing – helping us grow the number of customers and our impact.

Promote your Green Success

Visual Impact of Projects and Trees Planted

As part of your carbon offsetting impact, we plant trees in sustainable projects around the world - from British woodland management and creation, to reversing deforestation in the Amazon rainforest.

As a client you will receive detailed information on the projects you are funding, as well as the option for bespoke tree planting.

As an example - planting 240 trees is equal to 1 acre of Amazon reforestation - engaging content which you can promote to your stakeholders.

Recognised Carbon Neutral Certification

As a Carbon Neutral Business you will be able to promote your status - with certification and the Carbon Neutral Britain™ badge which can be displayed on your website, and other promotional materials across your organisation.

All of our carbon offsetting projects are certified to the highest standards through the United Nations Certified Emission Reductions (CER) programmes, which are publicly published - to provide complete transparency of the number of Tonnes of CO²e that have been offset by your organisation.

A Lasting Impact on Climate Change

Increased Greenhouse Gas (CO²e) emissions in the atmosphere are the biggest cause of Global Warming on our Planet. By Offsetting your Carbon Footprint your business will have a lasting impact on Climate Change for generations to come.

How to Get Started - 3 Steps to Carbon Neutrality

Step 1 (Calculate) - our environmental consultants calculate your organisations carbon footprint, following the ISO 14064 Standard and the GHG Emissions Protocol Accounting Standard - the two largest and most recognised standards for carbon footprint calculation in the world*. Once calculated, our team will produce a Carbon Emissions Report for your organisation – outlining your carbon footprint – measured in tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (tCO²e).

*In 2016, 92% of Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies followed the GHG Protocol or ISO 14064 Standard for their Carbon Emissions Calculations.

Step 2 (Offset) – once your carbon footprint has been calculated, Carbon Neutral Britain™ will offset your carbon emissions via your chosen portfolio of carbon offsetting credits. Regulated, verified and third party audited, the international carbon credits that we use are exactly the same credits as those used by multinational organisations, and even countries in their emission reduction schemes around the world - so you can be confident you are supporting vital projects, with accurate emissions reductions.

Step 3 (Certify) – once your organisation has offset, businesses receive Carbon Neutral Certification, Certification of the Carbon Offsets, and licence to use our Carbon Neutral Business badge – which can be promoted across your organisation. Business customers will also receive a media pack containing engaging photos, information and content on the projects supported via your offsetting, which can be promoted to your stakeholders.
