In June 2019, the UK became the first major economy in the world to pass laws guaranteeing an end to its contribution to global warming by 2050.The target will require the UK to bring all greenhouse gas emissions to net zero by 2050,compared with the previous target of at least an 80% reduction from 1990 levels.
However, at a time when the World needs more energy, we cannot sustain the increase in carbon dioxide emissions and harmful particulate matter that thus far are inevitably emitted from traditional fossil fuels. Fossil fuels must play a part in transitioning to this lower carbon future. Our challenge is how we meet demand for energy and move towards cleaner air and a net zero emission target in the UK.
As an industry, we have a track record of successes in this area. With the introduction of unleaded petrol and bio-fuels, we have been moving forward in this area. A progression that must now accelerate. A move in the changing face of fuel distribution.
Our integrated telematics help with emissions and reducing your carbon footprint, while keeping track of consumption for recording purposes. There is an easy way to lower your global fuel consumption, track how you progress on this and become environment-friendly!
Carbon Offsetting involves buying a volume of Voluntary Carbon Units reflective of your company’s associated carbon emissions. This is achieved by funding an equivalent CO2e reduction project. This is done by existing and well established Carbon Project Developers and provides a pragmatic and cost-effective solution for reducing CO2 emissions that cannot be otherwise avoided.
Offsetting helps compensate for your emissions by funding an equivalent CO2 saving elsewhere. Unlike other carbon reductive solutions, offsetting is a simple, cost-effective approach that can be done without making changes to your vehicles or fuel supply.
We work in partnership with Portland. Portland’s carbon compensation scheme enables our clients to decarbonise by funding carbon offsetting projects, designed to reduce and prevent CO2 emissions through various sustainable solutions. In addition to emissions benefits, such projects also help to generate employment, develop infrastructure and provide other social benefits to communities in need.
