Carbon Neutral Company In 2020, Childbase Partnership went carbon neutral by offsetting all 6500 tonnes of carbon it produced in 2018/19, as well as signing up to a pioneering program to reduce the biggest part of its carbon footprint: employee & parent travel. These actions sit as part of Childbase's programme for Net Zero by 2030: offsetting to achieve carbon neutrality in the short term, whilst committing to reduce all possible key emissions contributors over the remaining years until 2030. Facilitated by Furthr, Childbase chose two UNFCC and Gold Standard-certified carbon prevention projects to offset its carbon footprint. 3500 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent were offset by funding the distribution of solar water heaters across India, with the remaining 3000 tonnes offset on a wind farm in the northern state of Rajasthan. Both projects replace grid electricity that would have been generated by fossil fuels, whilst providing employment opportunities for local communities. See Carbon Offset Certificates Understanding that it’s not enough to just offset emissions, Childbase signed up to an innovative carbon reduction plan to help reduce staff and parent's emissions from travel. This twelve-month plan involves accurate measurement of travel emissions, personalised education on greener commuting and a large-scale competition to encourage staff and parents to reduce their travel emissions. Employee Trees Childbase is also planting a tree for every current employee and each new starter joining the company. These trees are planted through our charity partner Eden Reforestation Projects in Madagascar, Mozambique and Kenya. Eden Reforestation Projects reduces extreme poverty and restores healthy forests by employing local villagers to plant millions of trees every year. These trees we plant with Eden bring a wealth of natural benefits: restoring habitat for local wildlife, providing protection against flooding, decreasing desertification & drought to name a few.

In the dry deciduous forests of Madagascar, deforestation threatens one of the world’s rarest and most diverse forest systems. Since Humans first stepped foot on Madagascar, more than 90% of the island’s forests have been destroyed, displacing entire animal species and significantly reducing water quality.
