What is carbon offsetting?

Carbon offsetting is an internationally recognised way for businesses to compensate for their unavoidable carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions - it is done by funding sustainability projects that deliver equivalent carbon savings. Providing ‘carbon finance’ in this way allows businesses to reduce their overall carbon footprint and environmental impact. Before offsetting, Flogas always encourages businesses to reduce their emissions where possible.

How does it work?

Businesses purchase carbon credits based on their gas consumption, which in turn are used to offset unavoidable emissions created during their day-to-day operations. Each carbon credit supports an environmental project by capturing or reducing one equivalent tonne of CO2e that otherwise would not be captured.

Carbon offsetting benefits:

At Flogas we’re so convinced by the benefits of carbon offsetting, that we’re doing it too.

As part of our 2040 Vision to build a lower carbon future, we’re offsetting all our Level 1 and Level 2 CO2 emissions. We’ll be reducing our environmental impact year-on-year.

Our projects:

As part of our Carbon Offsetting Initiative, we’ve chosen a selection of verified carbon mitigation projects for our customers to support.

Each of these projects complies with either the Verified Carbon Standard (VCS) or Gold Standard (GS), which are approved under the ICROA Code of Best Practice.

They include:

  • Nafa Naana: An initiative that helps some of the poorest households in Burkina Faso, West Africa, access eco-friendly equipment (including efficient LPG cooking stoves), rather than relying on the use of firewood from dwindling forests
  • Kariba REDD+: A forest conservation project that provides sustainable livelihood opportunities for poor communities in Zimbabwe, Africa - a region now suffering from deforestation, poverty and drought
  • Huóshui Grouped Small Hydropower: A project consisting of 95 small-scale hydro power plants that generate renewable energy in rural China. By supplying clean hydroelectric power to the local grid, this displaces greenhouse gas emissions and improves the lives of local people.
