Working closely with Carbon Footprint, each year we calculate and independently verify the total greenhouse gas emissions caused by QCIC. Whilst our aim is to continually reduce our emmissions, we currently offset our calculated carbon emissions and have chosen Verified Carbon Standards (VCS) certified projects to support this effort.
We carefully select our offset programs to ensure that they align not only with our carbon reduction and offsetting initiatives but also with the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. This enables us to holistically take responsibility for the emissions that we make as a business, as well as contribute to regions and initiatives that require assistance.
The three new Carbon Offset Programmes we currently support are:
Providing clean drinking water to a community in Africa.
RMDLT Portel-Para Redd Project in Brazil
Helping to reduce deforestation in the Amazon rainforest, Brazil.
Indonesia Geothermal Wayang Windu Phase 2 Power Project
Geothermal power plants use steam produced from reservoirs of hot water to rotate a turbine. This renewable energy activates a generator that produces electricity.
We are a business that genuinely cares for the planet, actively supporting and driving initiatives that minimise the use of natural resources, emissions and waste.
