Natural Power has officially been awarded Carbon Neutral Plus status by Carbon Footprint Ltd for the second year. The award is given in recognition of the support Natural Power has given to projects across the globe which offset more carbon than the company has produced this year. The projects, which are audited independently by the Gold Standard, include a wind power project in India, efficient cookstoves in Uganda and peatland restoration in Indonesia, as well as tree planting schemes across Scotland, Wales and Kenya.
Achieving Carbon Neutral Plus status puts the company on a positive trajectory to achieving its Net Zero ambitions and is just one of the initiatives being run by Natural Power’s Green Space committee, which brings colleagues from across teams and countries to collaborate on improving sustainability across the company. It also aims to help our people and the communities that they work in on their own green journeys.
Chair of the Green Space, Josie FitzGibbon said “this is the result of a year-on-year decline in Natural Power’s CO2 emissions since 2019 and sets a great benchmark for us to build and improve on.”
