Sustainable Business Design is Carbon Neutral

This means we did not add to global warming in the year of certification as our greenhouse gas emissions were net zero.

This has been self validated through the Go Climate Positive programme.

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 helping other businesses to calculate and reduce their carbon footprint

Our "Go Climate Positive" programme helps other businesses to calculate their carbon footprint. Then we help them to set science-based reduction targets, to offset what they cannot reduce and to go climate positive by:

  • Reusing or recycling materials and products

  • Developing and selling low-carbon products
  • Helping suppliers or customers to reduce their emissions

‘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.
