RS Clare Continue To Support Ecologi and Reach Major Carbon Offsetting Goal

This week, RS Clare & Co are pleased to announce that we have offset the typical carbon emissions produced by our manufacturing site in 2022. This was achieved as part of our ongoing partnership with Ecologi – an environmental organisation who support businesses to provide carbon offsetting and other environmentally beneficial projects around the world.

What is carbon offsetting?

Carbon offsetting is a way to balance out the greenhouse gas emissions produced by business activity, through investing in projects that reduce or remove an equal amount of emissions from the atmosphere. It involves taking responsibility for the carbon footprint and supporting initiatives that help combat climate change.

Our impact

As part of our work with Ecologi we have funded over 11,000 planted trees, along with supporting several other global projects. Our planted trees are in the UK, Uganda, Madagascar & Kenya. Since 2022, we have supported the prevention of 1000 tCO2 e from being emitted through several verified carbon avoidance projects including :

  • We have recently started supporting a project in India, which focuses on turning local organic waste in electricity for residents to use as a renewable power source and reduce waste levels going to landfill.
  • We support the restoration and conservation of peatland in Indonesia. Peat is important as it is an extremely efficient carbon storage material.
  • For 12 months we have supported wind power generation projects in Vietnam and Thailand help increase renewable energy usage.

Additional Environmental Efforts

In addition to carbon offsetting, we also invest significantly in research and development to make sure that our products are devised in a way that limits environmental damage where possible. This helps us adhere to the environmental standards set out by the ISO 14001 framework. As part of our constantly reviewed environmental policy, we aim to:

  • Develop and market products that complement international and domestic environmental objectives and extend the life of valuable assets.
  • Identify environmental hazards and implement effective controls through consultations with suppliers, customers and regulators.
  • Manage the reduction and responsible disposal of waste across the supply chain.
  • Monitor energy consumption and act to ensure that efficient, sustainable solutions are considered.
  • Utilise appropriate technology, such as solar panels, rainwater harvesting and ground source heat pumps, to offset our environmental impact.
  • Consider the environmental impacts of our goods and services and make responsible, sustainable purchasing decisions.

If you have any questions about our range of environmental activity, we would encourage you to get in touch and a member of our team would be happy to assist.
