Certified Carbon Neutral

Georgina Roberts Updated by Georgina Roberts

We work hard to keep our emissions as low as possible, and work with environmental partners to offset the emissions we do make. Most of our team (less the warehouse team and some operational staff) work from home and have always worked from home. Not only does his help support our peoples work life balance, but it also reduces everyday emissions for travel. Every year we collect data and submit all our business activities (direct and indirect) to be assessed for GHG (green house gas) emissions. Natural Capital Partners assess our carbon footprint using various methods of data analysis and validation to give us a measurement for the year. We receive a report which outlines our emissions and breaks down what areas of our business are operating sustainably and what areas need work. We then offset our emissions by supporting the Rimba Raya Biodiversity reserve.

The Rimba Raya Biodiversity reserve is a an InfinateEARTH project, and the largest REDD+ project in the world, in terms of its avoided emissions to date and protecting around 65,000 hectares of peat swamp in Central Kalimantan, Indonesian Borneo. Its avoided carbon emissions to date total to around 130 million tonnes. Rimba Raya is the world’s largest privately funded Orangutang reserve, and works with the surrounding community to provide education and employment, and addressing all 17 of the UN Sustainable Development goals. Rimba Raya is around the same size as Singapore, and it provides a vital patrolled buffer zone between ever-encroaching bulldozers of the palm oil industry and the Tanjung National Park, home to one of the last remaining wild populations of orangutans on earth.

Here you can take a look at Rimba Raya and the inspiring work they are doing.
