Abaqus Ltd

is Carbon Neutral

This means we did not add to global warming in the year of certification as we saved the same amount of greenhouse gas emissions as we produced.


This has been independently validated by Go Climate Positive.

Activities


We are providing renewable energy in India

We have invested in a carefully selected range of offsetting projects, like this one that provides biogas for cooking from manure in India, shifting people away from using wood, which can causes ocular and respiratory infections . All of our projects have been certified to reduce carbon emissions and have strong additional benefits including health benefits, saving low-income families money and reducing deforestation. All projects in this portfolio are Gold Standard Certified


We are moving to a renewable electricity supplier 

We have committed to switch out energy supplier to purchase 100% renewable electricity by the end of the year (2021).

This will reduce our carbon footprint by 236 kg CO2e.

‘Go Climate Positive’ is a membership programme that makes it easy for businesses to calculate, reduce and offset their carbon emissions. It is designed to adhere to the GHG Protocol Corporate Standard and Corporate Value Chain Standard.
