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 emissions, 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:
Wastewater Treatment and Biogas Project in Thailand:
This Thai starch plant captures methane, using anaerobic wastewater treatment facilities and converts the gas into energy, replacing the need for fossil fuel consumption. The project assists with the prevention of methane from harming the climate and avoids thousands of tonnes of fossil fuel being burnt per year.
RMDLT Portel-Para Redd Project in Brazil
Helping to reduce deforestation in the Amazon rainforest, Brazil.
Indonesia Geothermal Gunung Salak Geothermal Energy
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.
