Carbon Neutral
Carbon dioxide (CO2) is produced when we burn fossil fuels (oil, coal, gas) to produce energy. Around the world, millions of tons of polluting CO2 is produced, contributing to climate change. 
We accept that during the manufacture and transport of any product to customers, all industries contribute to the carbon released into the atmosphere. To reduce and in some cases eliminate our impact as a business we purchase carbon credits or offsets. 
Our chosen direction moves away from traditional offset programs such as tree planting as we are not assured of the full carbon capture of one tree as we are not guaranteed that the tree will grow to its full maturity. We choose programs that have a secondary
benefit to the wellbeing of communities and the planet.

Some of the projects we support are:

Indian Biomass:
Biomass is plant  based waste. Biomass is used as an alternative to fossil fuels combusted for electricity generation. It does not add carbon dioxide to the atmosphere as it absorbs the same amount of carbon in plant growth cycle as it releases when consumed as a fuel. 
A renewable alternative to coal its advantage is that it can be used to generate electricity with the same equipment or power plants that are now burning fossil fuels. Biomass is also used for household heating and cooking in the form of compressed briquettes, allowing for further reduction of carbon released into our atmosphere.

Indian Solar Power:
The purpose of the project activity is to generate energy electricity by the utilization of solar power and further selling the generated energy to the respective Grid or for captive purpose. In this process there is no consumption of any fossil fuel and hence it does not lead to any greenhouse gas emissions.

China Wind:
Clean energy produced by wind power instead of sourcing energy from coal powered stations has an obvious positive impact on the environment. The ability to offset our production by purchasing these carbon credits contributes to the financing of further construction of wind turbines in China – allowing for further reduction of carbon released into our atmosphere.

China Solar Power:
China has witnessed rapidly increasing demand for energy as a by-product of meteoric growth in recent history. This has resulted in a significant increase in the burning of fossil fuels to meet the developing demand for energy. Solar energy plays a significant role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as the emission of harmful air pollutants such as sulphur and nitrous oxides.

Kenya LifeStraw®:
According to the UN 884 million people worldwide do not have access to clean drinking water, each year more than 2 million children die because of this. LifeStraws® purify water without the need for heat, electricity or additional tools. This means that LifeStraws® are not only good for Africans’ health but good for the environment.  What does one LifeStraw® Carbon Credit support? In addition to representing the reduction of one ton of carbon dioxide emissions from the atmosphere, one LifeStraw® Carbon credit also provides 1 family in Kenya safe water for an entire year.

Mali Cookstoves:
By supporting this cause we are able offset carbon emissions through providing energy efficient cook stoves. The Mali Cook stove Project reduces CO2 emissions through reducing demand for wood and charcoal. At the same time, it cuts household fuel costs and improves livelihoods, especially those of women and children who use them and are impacted the most.

Mauritius Solar Power:
Solar energy plays a significant role in reducing greenhouse gas emissions as well as the emission of harmful air pollutants such as sulphur and nitrous oxides. The success of the project will continue to help in promoting renewable energy use for a cleaner future while diversifying Mauritius's current energy mix.

USA  - Wind Power Renewable Energy:
Wind power projects will produce clean renewable energy that will displace traditional fossil-fuelled energy sources. They also reduce the emission of greenhouse gases and limits local air pollution, curtailing its negative health impacts. Beyond the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions, the project contributes to sustainable development in the United States by stimulating the local economy through large-scale investment. Driving the United States towards a cleaner form of energy mix and meeting its renewable energy targets.

Uganda Cookstoves:
The Uganda stoves project disseminates efficient wood and charcoal cook stoves throughout Uganda to reduce dependency on traditional biomass fuels.
