An offsetting programme to be proud of

Approved by the rigorous Verified Carbon Standard (VCS), our offsetting programme focuses on renewables, clean energy and circular economy projects. From wind energy projects in India to the conversion of landfill gas to clean electricity in Brazil, they not only foster sustainability, they improve quality of life for local communities.

What’s more, our carbon offsetting is completely voluntary, not tax-exempt and we hold no equity investments in the projects we support.
