How our donations make a difference
Updated: May 1, 2022
On Tuesday 5th April we had our biggest gig yet! 175 people at a private event for the mighty Meta aka Facebook in central London. We have to admit, we were very proud of this one.
Now let’s talk about sustainability…
After every event, we make a donation to Ecologi. This comes at no extra cost to the client and is in accordance with how much carbon we use for that event.
This week, we planted 100 trees on behalf of Meta to offset our carbon emissions.
This makes our total trees 276 in our forest. We have saved a massive 5.5 tonnes of carbon! That’s the same as 5 long haul flights or 17 square metres of sea ice!
And it's not just tree planting we do...
Ecologi also use our donations to support a broad range of projects that reduce greenhouse gas emissions. These donations help fund various projects all over the world! Take a look below and watch them grow with us.
We are helping to preserve over 27,000 hectares of the amazon rainforest which had previously been designated for deforestation in order to clear the land for livestock pasture.
Working with local landowners such as farmers, our donations help plant trees on their land – including reforestation and restoration efforts on degraded land, or afforestation (planting new trees where previously there were none).
This project is the largest in the world to protect High Conservation Value (HCV) tropical lowland peat swamp, making enormous emissions reductions and protecting many endangered species on the IUCN Red List.
The saint Nikola Wind Farm project is located in Kavarna, Bulgaria and is designed to generate electricity through wind energy to displace fossil fuel-generated electricity.
Other projects include
ZAMBIA AND GHANA
Cleaner Cookstoves (Uses 66% less biomass)
First ever wind power project
Wind power station
Using waste biomass to produce electricity
Our work goes towards supporting projects that are in line with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.
These projects are verified by the the Verified Carbon Standard. You can view it on the Verra Registry here.
