Carbon Offsetting.

Identifying and offsetting our environmental impact.

Andes Mountains Hydro Power, Chile

Located in the Tinguiririca River upper valley, this Hydroelectric project is around 120km south of Santiago, Chile. Known as La Confluencia, the 163 MW run of river hydro power plant utilizes the hydrological resources of the Tinguiririca, Portillo and Azufre Rivers, in a run of river scheme to generate and supply zero emission energy to the Chilean central electricity grid (SIC).

 

Project Impact and Secondary Benefits:

- The primary objective of the proposed project is to help meet Chile’s rising demand for energy due to its economic growth and to improve the supply of electricity.

- Through the "Tinguiririca Participa" grant program, the project directly finances proposals presented by community organisation, in areas such as healthcare, education, and social change.

- Reforestation of around 120 hectares around the site has been implemented, helping protect and improve the local flora and fauna.

Burgos Wind Farm, Philippines

The Burgos Wind Project is the largest wind farm in the Philippines. At the time it was built, it was also considered to be one of the largest wind farms in South East Asia. It is located in one of the best areas in the country to generate clean energy from wind.

 

Project Impact and Secondary Benefits:

- The project produces clean energy and displaces generation from other sources that contribute pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions to the environment.

- Engaging and empowering the community is a critical objective of the Project. In fact, the team hosts a local radio program that discusses various topics with the local community, mostly on the protection and promotion of the environment.

- During construction, the Burgos Wind Farm generated a significant number of jobs, and today employs over 600 staff in the on-going management and maintenance of the wind farm and energy sites.

Rice Husk Power Project, Cambodia

The Angkor Bio Cogen (ABC) project is the first renewable energy project to utilize rice husk as biomass fuel for electricity generation in Cambodia, involves the operation of 2 MW new rice husk power generation plant in the Kandal province.

 

Project Impact and Secondary Benefits:

- Reduces overall GHG emissions through the reduction of methane emissions, replacing diesel power and donating surpluss power to the local community.

- Contributed to the improvement of economic, social and environmental well-being of the community through providing reliable electricity access to the rice mill as well as the neighbouring business and community.

Huaneng Changyi Wind Farm Project, China

The purpose of the Huaneng Changyi Phase II Wind Farm Project is the generation of electricity from wind and the supply of this electricity to the North China Power Grid (NCPG, or the Grid). The Project Activity has installed and is operating 33 wind turbines with a capacity of 1500 kW each.

 

Project Impact and Secondary Benefits:

- Produces clean energy and displaces generation from other sources that contribute pollutants and greenhouse gas emissions to the environment.

- Stimulate and accelerate the commercialisation of grid-connected wind power technologies and markets.

- Generated a significant number of jobs, and today employs over 400 staff in the on-going management and maintenance of the wind farm and energy sites.

Calculating our carbon footprint

Using the ISO 14064 and GHG Emissions Protocol Standards, our emissions are identified using three scopes of emissions:

Scope 1 - Direct emissions

Stationary and Mobile Source Emissions (equipment and quantity combusted), Company Owned and Leased Vehicles (vehicle type and distance travelled), Refrigerant Gas Losses.

Scope 2 - Energy indirect

Energy (electricity, imported heat, steam in kwh) using the market based method. Electric vehicles charged off site.

Scope 3 - Other indirect

Self-employed Courier Journeys. Business Travel (vehicle category and mileage). Electricity Transmission and Distribution.

Results and impact

Our calculated carbon emissions for the months of January to June 2022.
