To become carbon neutral, an organisation must purchase carbon offsets that either result in carbon reductions, efficiencies, or sinks. Our offset project is a Wind Energy Farm in Brazil.
The project is the implantation and operation of 14 wind power plants in Northeast Brazil. This provides clean and renewable electricity which is important contribution to environmental sustainability as wind energy is created without burning fossil fuels.
There are also many socioeconomic benefits to this project, specifically for the local community. The project helps provide training and education to local teachers and the construction of new schools. It supports producers to reduce poverty in the local areas by increasing productivity and reducing inequalities by the development of basic infrastructure in rural households. It also helps provide vital clean water, food and sanitation to the local community.
At the start of 2023, we will work with ClimatePartner again to calculate our 2022 carbon emissions and will choose another project to offset our emissions.
