We’re carbon negative

This means that we’ve calculated our carbon emissions and offset 110% of our total emissions which has supported worthwhile projects.

Voted for by our colleagues in 2022, we supported the following projects:  

  • Amazon rainforest deforestation prevention
  • Wildlife sanctuary preservation
  • Improved cook stoves project

We will continue to maintain our carbon negative status, that we achieved during 2022, and work to identify and implement environmental improvement initiatives to further lower our carbon footprint.
