The Chevron Group has chosen Earth Day to announce exciting plans to offset its carbon emissions with projects that cut carbon and improve lives.
They have selected ClimateCare to offset its carbon emissions with projects that cut carbon and improve lives.
As part of The Chevron Group’s approach to take responsibility for their impact on the environment, they have partnered with climate and sustainable development experts ClimateCare to offset carbon emissions associated with their operations maintaining the UK’s road network.
As well as taking actions to reduce its footprint through initiatives such as the installation of LED lighting, rainwater harvesting, and transitioning their TSCO van fleet to electric vehicles, unavoidable emissions will be offset through supporting projects that decarbonise grid electricity in India and protect a significant and vital carbon sink in the Gola Rainforest National Park, Sierra Leone.
“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 offsetting 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.” Tim Cockayne, CEO of The Chevron Group.
ClimateCare’s Head of Client Services, Aude Duquesne explains: "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 addressing their environmental impacts by offsetting their carbon emissions through projects which also support sustainable development”.
