Following a successful partnership across three events last year, Sustainable Business Magazine and edie.net have extended their agreement with ClimateCare to offset the carbon emissions associated with speaker and delegate travel to key events this year.
Travel by those attending six key events will be offset with the LifeStraw Carbon for Water project, a multi-award winning project recently selected by the UNFCCC to showcase how climate change activities bring social and environmental benefits in developing countries. As well as cutting carbon, the project delivers safe water to 4.5 million people in Kenya, which has the potential to dramatically improve health and protect the environment.
“We specialise in helping businesses, governments and NGOs take a smart approach to tackling some of the world’s most pressing environmental and sustainable development challenges, increasing impact and making best use of their social investment budget” explains ClimateCare Director, Edward Hanrahan. “
ClimateCare has fifteen years’ experience running some of the most innovative and largest carbon offset programmes in the world. It is well known for its integrated Climate and Development solutions, which deliver multiple positive outcomes for communities across the world, as well as creating innovative partnerships between public and private sector.
“We’re delighted to work with ClimateCare on two fronts” says Head of Events Mark Baker. “One, they are helping us take measurable action to make our events more sustainable – one more step towards ensuring our own business is sustainable as those we write about. Secondly, we hope that this partnership will allow ClimateCare to share their messages with our event delegates, stimulating new action and partnerships that will benefit everyone.”
ClimateCare representatives will be available at each event, to discuss delegates’ sustainability challenges and explore ways they can take cost effective action to meet multiple Water, Carbon and Sustainability targets.
