Leading online environmental publishers edie.net and Sustainable Business magazine have partnered with climate and development experts ClimateCare to offset the carbon emissions associated with travel to key events.
Travel by those attending the 2012 Responsible Procurement and Supplier Engagement Conference, Corporate Water Risk 2012 Conference and the Sustainability Leaders Forum will be offset through the multiple award-winning Carbon for Water project.
The purchase of carbon credits helps finance this project which recently won Carbon Finance Transaction of the Year. The project delivers safe water to more than 4.5 million people in Kenya, generating significant carbon reductions, while dramatically enhancing the health and economic circumstances of local communities.
“It is important for us to practice what we preach” explains head of events, Mark Baker. “ClimateCare are experts in this field, with fifteen years’ experience running some of the most innovative and largest carbon offset programmes in the world. Working with them has helped us understand how we can ensure our own business is a sustainable as those we write about. Offsetting the travel of delegates and speakers attending our events is a positive step towards this.”
ClimateCare Director Edward Hanrahan explains “We are working with a range of organisations, from international corporates, governments and NGOs to deliver exciting projects at an unprecedented scale. Our climate and development model helps organisations take a smart approach to addressing their environmental impacts by offsetting their carbon emissions and supporting sustainable development”.
ClimateCare representatives will be available to discuss their unique Climate and Development approach at all three events. Find out more, or offset your emissions online at www.climatecare.org
