Carbon Offset - Our Social Impact
As part of our mission to help make the world a better place, for every boiler we install and service each year we help to support a wide range of carbon offsetting projects around the world.
From reforestation in Kenya to wind farms in Europe all of the projects we support are either VCS, Gold Standard or CERs certified and together they help to improve the standard of living in developing countries and provide cleaner air for us all.
Your support helps to fund a Global Portfolio of VCS certified carbon reduction programmes across the world via a range of projects that include carbon avoidance and clean and renewable energy generation. Many are within developing countries, where they also provide additional social benefits.
UK Tree Planting
Your new boiler installation could help to fund the planting of trees in the UK region of your choice. The project mainly plants in school locations, helping to educate children and support wildlife habitats whilst sequestering carbon emissions.
For each ton CO2 offset (tCO2e), one tree is planted in the UK and an additional ton CO2 is offset through a VCS tree buddying project to guarantee the emission reductions.
Reforestation in Kenya
We bet you never thought your new boiler could be supporting the planting of native broad leafed trees in the Great Rift Valley, and its developing community. For each ton CO2 (tCO2e) one tree is planted and an additional ton CO2 is offset through a VCS tree buddying project to guarantee the emission reductions.
With your help we are able to support a carefully selected range of projects from within the Americas region that have strong additional benefits beyond reducing carbon emissions. These include health benefits and reducing deforestation. All projects in this portfolio are certified to either the Verified Carbon Standard or the Gold Standard and include energy efficiency, reducing deforestation, and clean drinking water projects.
Every year when you have your annual boiler service you’ll also help to support a carefully selected range of projects from within developing countries that have strong additional benefits beyond reducing carbon emissions. These include health benefits, saving low-income families money and reducing deforestation. All projects in this portfolio are certified to the Gold Standard and include efficient household cook stoves and clean drinking water projects.
Certified emissions reduction
Your new boiler could also support Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) projects that have generated Certified Emission Reductions (CERs). CDM was defined by the Kyoto Protocol to promote clean development in developing countries. This offsetting portfolio supports sustainable development through a range of projects such as Wind Energy, Small Hydro Power, Efficient Cookstoves and Biomass.
