The world of carbon offsetting is still largely unregulated and can often seem quite distant both geographically and from its connection with your business. To find out more about carbon offsetting, read my blog.
Another way to compensate for your impact on the natural world is to take part in a conservation project close to you. One which resonates with your business as a brand and which can connect your people with nature.
If you are producing raw materials or products, your impact on nature will be clear. But every business has an impact even if it's less obvious. Book a Free Sustainability Audit to explore further.
As I mentioned, there are lots of carbon offset projects (COPs) out there but it can be really hard to choose which is right for your business and, importantly, which COPs are actually delivering what they claim to.
For my UK clients, I decided to partner with GreenTheUK as they connect businesses with well-established wildlife projects. You will be able to choose from an interesting number of projects from planting forests or wildflower meadows to protecting marine life and endangered species. Your staff can be actively involved in the project you invest in and keep in touch with progress.
