APEM select ClimateCare to offset its carbon emissions with projects that cut carbon and improve lives
As part of our approach to taking responsibility for our impact on the environment, we have partnered with climate and sustainable development experts ClimateCare to offset any unavoidable carbon emissions associated with our company vehicles, building electricity usage, subcontracted aircraft and waste operations.
APEM are proud to be a certified CarbonNeutral® company
As a certified CarbonNeutral® company, APEM Ltd have offset 300 tonnes of carbon emissions through the Climate+Care mixed portfolio which supports green projects in Ghana, India, Bangladesh and renewable energy projects globally.
As well as taking actions to reduce our carbon footprint through our Environmental, Social and Governance initiatives, unavoidable emissions will be offset through projects including two world-leading clean cooking projects in Bangladesh and Ghana. These clean cooking projects not only cut carbon emissions, helping tackle climate change, they improve lives by halving fuel bills for families and reducing exposure to toxic fumes. By cutting fuel requirements the projects also reduce deforestation, protecting precious habitat.
Credits have also been purchased from renewable energy projects. Projects supporting the provision of renewable energy are vital to help reduce greenhouse gas emissions from the growing global demand for energy and build sustainable infrastructure. Energy generation is one of the biggest emitters of greenhouse gases, and renewable energy investment is a fast and effective solution to reduce these emissions.
