tonnes of historical C02 emissions offset

This project involves the planting of indigenous woodland in an area close to Loch Ness, which will eventually provide more than 20 000 tCO2 offsetting capacity. We have offset 101 tonnes of scope 3 CO2 emissions by investing in this project.

In addition to investing in the Loch Ness project
We have offset 7 tCO2 of historical scope 1 and 2 emissions through carbon removal by investing in the Oregon Biochar project in the USA.

We have also offset 53 tCO2 of historical scope 3 emissions by investing in a 100.5MW wind project in India.
Our investment in 161 tCO2 offsets means that we are already a carbon neutral organisation.
