Carbon Neutral

As part of our push to be carbon neutral we use sustainable and reusable materials on site, including products such as reclaimed timber, recycled timber offcuts used for acoustic panels and reused furnishings. We want to build a better future for our planet. We have already offset 230 tons of CO2 emissions, the equivalent weight of the Statue of Liberty, but we want to go further. Our aim is to be an industry trendsetter by making our construction projects Carbon Neutral. We can deliver this through working with our supply chain to calculate the full carbon lifecycle of a project, using renewable sources of energy on site, and through waste reduction and recycling.

Carbon Neutral Projects

As an accredited carbon neutral company, we have worked closely with ClimatePartner to calculate our Carbon Footprint, identify ways to reduce it and offset the carbon that can’t be reduced. We have already offset 230 tons of CO2 emissions, but we want to go further.

The projects we have invested in not only reduce our Carbon Footprint they also help confront some of the biggest challenges facing the planet and focus on tackling the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. These projects are specifically Wind Energy Projects Throughout Asia & Africa, Hydropower Projects in Asia, Solar Energy Projects Throughout India & Africa and Biogas Projects Throughout Asia.

Wind Energy Projects Throughout Asia & Africa

As the name suggests, wind turbines use the power of the wind to generate energy. During this process, a generator located inside the wind turbine converts kinetic energy into electrical energy. As energy is still mainly generated from fossil fuels in many areas around the world, clean wind energy can replace some of this fossil, high-emission energy and verifiably save CO2 emissions.

In most cases, the sustainably generated electricity from the wind power projects is fed into a regional power grid, which diversifies the power supply and improves energy security in regions that are frequently affected by power shortages and outages. A project often creates increased job opportunities for the local population and the area can be used for additional activities, such as agriculture. Wind power projects make an important contribution to a clean energy supply worldwide and contribute to sustainable development with respect to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

The African continent faces many social, economic, health, and environmental challenges. Transitioning to an energy system centered on renewable energy such as wind, solar or hydro is key for sustainable development, especially regarding mitigating the effects of climate change and providing access to clean and affordable energy for all.

Hydropower Projects in Asia

Hydropower plants use the energy of water to generate electricity. The energy is harnessed by passing water through a turbine. Under the pressure of the water, the turbine turns and transfers this energy to a generator, which converts kinetic energy into electricity. This principle applies to all types of hydroelectric power plants: from small run-of-river power plants to pumped-storage power plants on bodies of water like lakes.

In many parts of the world, electricity is still primarily generated from fossil fuels. Clean hydropower can replace some of this emission-intensive energy and thus verifiably save carbon emissions. In most hydropower projects, the electricity is fed into a regional power grid, diversifying the energy supply and improving energy security in areas affected by power shortages and blackouts. Often, these projects also create jobs for the local population. Hydropower projects thus make an important contribution to clean energy supply as well as contributing to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

Solar Energy Projects Throughout India & Africa

Since energy from solar panels is created without burning fossil fuels, it is considered emission-free. The growth of renewable energy production is essential to prevent global warming and secure energy supplies for the future.

Africa could double its energy demand during the next decade and the current grid relies mostly on non-renewable, emission-intensive sources such as coal. We must end the “addiction to fossil fuels”, as UN Secretary-General Guterres puts it, to reduce CO2 emissions significantly, especially in the energy sector. Thus, it is crucial to promote the expansion of sustainable energy. On the African continent, this transition can contribute to ending energy poverty, stabilizing grids, and reducing energy dependencies. Climate projects can unlock the potential for renewable energy generation in many diverse regions in Africa, specifically Madagascar, Namibia, Egypt, South Africa and Namibia.

Biogas Projects Throughout Asia

In biogas facilities, biomass is fermented into biogas in sealed digesters. Biomass may consist of organic waste or dung from cows or other animals. In countries like India or Vietnam, families use the gas from small biogas plants for cooking. This reduces CO2 emissions that would be produced by cooking with wood or charcoal. Biogas plants also prevent methane from escaping into the atmosphere, as is the case when organic waste is stored in an open pit. Instead, the gas is fed from the closed digesters to specific cookers and thus provides an independent and renewable source of energy.
