Project 1 - UK Tree Planting & Protecting the Amazon
For each tonne of CO2 equivalent (tCO2e) of unavoidable emissions produced, we sponsor one tree to be planted in the UK and an additional tCO2e is offset via the REDD+ ('Reduced Emissions from Deforestation and Degradation') project based in Brazil, managed by the Verified Carbon Standard.
This project is fully verified, meets international standards, BSI’s PAS 2060 specification and the Carbon Footprint Standard.
Project 2 - Heqing Solar Cooker Project
With strong working relationships in China, this second project was a no brainer to choose. Solar cookers provide a clean and renewable energy supply for daily cooking and water boiling, replacing coal.
The Heqing Solar Cooker Project, located in Zhangye, north-western China, has helped to install 49,000 solar cookers that directly benefit approx. 196,000 villagers.
This switch avoids carbon dioxide emissions through coal consumption resulting in a reduction of 143,762 tonne of CO2e annually.
