As a school we make a conscious effort to play our part in climate change and we are proud to announce that between December 2022 and spring 2023 we offset 1068 kgs of CO2e.
We use a local paper supplier (Fusion Paper, based in Bradford) who are a completely carbon neutral business.
Once they know what their Green House Gas (GHG) emissions are they offset these by 125%.
This is achieved by buying carbon credits from an ethical carbon credit scheme and they have teamed up with Taking Root in Central America, www.takingroot.org for their tree planting to achieve the 125%.
Taking Root in Central America are pioneers in leveraging the forest carbon offset industry to promote economic development amongst smallholder farmers. As a not for profit, their mission is to use reforestation as a tool to mitigate climate change, restore ecosystems and improve livelihoods.
