TheOfficeProviders.com are proud to have achieved CarbonNeutral® company accreditation in May 2010. Working with The CarbonNeutral Company we have measured the carbon emissions that our business produces (our ‘carbon footprint’) and then reduced this to net zero.
We have done this through internal reductions initiatives such as using recycled office consumables, changing heating and lighting strategies within our office space, utilising virtual storage, using greener modes of business transport and increasing recycling. In order to reduce our carbon footprint to net zero we have offset the remaining carbon emissions through The CarbonNeutral Company. This means that for every one tonne of CO2 that we produce, we pay to enable an equivalent amount to be saved by an offset project somewhere else in the world.
TheOfficeProviders.com have chosen to offset with the Tamil Nadu Wind Power Project in India. This project involves the construction of 27 new wind turbines in India. Located at a number of sites in the Erode district of Tamil Nadu, this project generates approximately 21.93 MW of clean electricity which is delivered to the Southern Regional grid.
This displaces electricity that would otherwise have been derived from fossil fired power stations, avoiding CO2 emissions, local air pollutants and solid waste associated with the consumption of coal.
