Why choose to offset your carbon footprint?
Investing in carbon offset projects helps organisations take immediate action on greenhouse emissions. We recommend it as one part of a broader, integrated carbon management strategy.
Globally, people increasingly buy from and want to work for purpose-led companies that share their values and beliefs.
Companies taking climate action find it delivers value in various ways:
- Reducing global carbon emissions
- Building resilience in supply chains
- Building a reputation for leadership on climate and sustainable development
- Winning new customers and increasing brand loyalty among existing ones by enhancing brand and product differentiation
- Increasing brand awareness and positioning products in key markets
- Attracting and retaining employees
How do carbon credits work?
This video explains how certified cuts in carbon emissions help organisations compensate their carbon footprints and reduce global poverty.
Carbon credits are an internationally recognised way for organisations to manage their carbon emissions.
Growing numbers of countries and organisations are taking steps to decarbonise, but right now - even for the most energy-efficient and sustainable among them - it is almost impossible to completely avoid activities that cause emissions.
Organisations maximise value when they:
- Measure their baseline greenhouse gas footprint
- Set reduction targets
- Implement strategies to identify interventions that meet these targets most cost effectively
- Take action to reduce risks, improve performance, and compensate unavoidable impacts
- Communicate their activities to employees, investors and customers
South Pole can support you at every step of this journey.
