EllisKnight International is taking affirmative action to reduce its carbon footprint through a number of measures including recycling initiatives, water management, energy-saving lighting and vastly reducing business travel.

Unavoidable emissions will be offset through projects including two world-leading clean cooking projects in Kenya and Ghana. These clean cooking projects not only cut carbon emissions, helping tackle climate change, but they also improve lives by halving fuel bills for families and reducing exposure to toxic fumes, which kill more people each year than malaria and tuberculosis combined. By cutting fuel requirements the projects also reduce deforestation, protecting precious habitat.

"We are delighted to work with experts in this sector, ClimateCare. They have over 20 years' experience running some of the most innovative and largest voluntary carbon offset programmes in the world. Working with them has allowed us to take full responsibility for our carbon footprint and integrate action to tackle climate change and improve people's lives." – David Holby-Wolinski, EK Co-Director.

 

"We work with forward-thinking organisations to turn their climate responsibilities into positive outcomes. Our trademark Climate+Care approach helps organisations take a smart approach to address their environmental impacts by offsetting their carbon emissions through projects which also support sustainable development". – Explains ClimateCare's Director of Partnerships, Robert Stevens.

 

It is essential as an ethical organisation that we continue to drive the reduction of our business travel emissions, office energy, waste and water use. Offsetting the emissions that we have been unable to eliminate allows us to support – among others – the Aqua Clara water purification project in Kenya. This project helps communities gain access to safe drinking water by making affordable household purifiers. In doing so, it reduces the need to boil water – cutting carbon emissions and lowering rates of deforestation in surrounding areas. It's a fantastic project and one that we are extremely proud to support" – Paul Smith, EK Co-Director.
