Climate change is a global threat which will impact the lives of everyone on the planet. Hence, it is vital that all individuals, businesses, organisations and governments work towards the common goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Being Carbon Neutral means as much to creativehub as it should to any other company.
Carbon Footprint’s analysts have calculated our footprint using the 2018 conversion factors developed by the UK Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs (Defra) and the Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy (BEIS).
After internally analysing our footprint, we made as many immediate changes as possible to cut back most of our carbon emissions. Where unavoidable, as recommended by Friends of the Earth, Greenpeace and WWF UK, we use Gold Standard to offset our carbon emissions. Through the Gold Standard, creativehub invests in renewable energy project instead of others which would be less productive and produce carbon fossil fuels to produce electricity.
Offsetting our carbon emissions is first and foremost a short term alternative and not a long term solution. We are constantly looking to cut back our emissions even further and continue making necessary changes along the way.
