Go carbon neutral as part of your Corporate Social Responsibility
climate change provide an opportunity to show that you are motivated to
take responsibility for the impact your business is having on the
environment basically through direct energy consumption, staff flights, etc.
More over, going carbon neutral
does not necessarily should imply a cost. In fact, your company may
derive benefits from incorporating carbon
offsetting as part of a carbon reduction strategy.
Many companies recognise that carbon offsetting is an
essential part of an integrated carbon management programme,
delivering the following benefits:
▪ Carbon offsetting provides an opportunity to reduce
carbon emissions to meet a significant target which will
build reputation and leadership. Meeting a carbon neutral
target is the only way a business can say it has taken full
responsibility for its carbon emissions making it an
integral part of their social responsibility programme.
▪ Frequently carbon offset are more immediate and
cost-effective emission reductions than those which can be
achieved through internal reductions.
▪ For leased offices or manufacturing facilities,
infrastructure changes which make an impact on carbon
emissions can take significant time and budget to implement.
▪ Carbon offsetting creates a cost benchmark against which
all other carbon reduction activities can be measured.

certified 'carbon credits',
on the grounds of
verified reduction of GHG emissions
The offsetting projects
we select have been endowed with certified
carbon credits either Certified Emission Reductions (CER)
-in the case of
Clean Development Mechanism's
projects- or Verified
Emissions Reductions (VER).
In the latter case the projects are not necessarily in less developed
countries but they may even be local. These VER's projects make part of
the so-called voluntary (unregulated) carbon credit
offsetting market. However, the VER are certified and audited
under criteria (as The Gold Standard's, f.e.) similar to those applied
by the UNFCCC; and their annual emissions-reduction's audits are issued
by internationally credited entities, as f.e. TÜV (which in turn is
also the main certifying entity credited by the UNFCCC for its
buying such carbon credits you will also be actively participating in
those sustainable development projects: Beyond
to reduce carbon emissions, to generate jobs, provide affordable energy
to locals, or improve local living conditions are key elements
for a project to be validated and certified.
Thus, your offsetting will not only have a positive impact on the global
environment -which in some way might appear as something abstract: You
will be also contributing to a sustainable progress of precarious
