Balancing carbon emissions
Climate change is reaching crisis levels, with transport and fuel sectors being targeted as large contributors of CO2 emissions. As a fuel supplier it is challenging to find environmentally friendly solutions that meet the needs of our business, however Johnston Oils have taken their first steps in the right direction to start neutralising the CO2 that is emitted by a selection of our customers.
Johnston Oils have invested in a Carbon Compensation Scheme which funds carbon offsetting projects, designed to reduce and prevent CO2 emissions through various sustainable solutions.
Carbon offsetting allows Johnston Oils to invest in environmental projects around the world in order to balance out carbon emissions. Carbon Compensation involves buying a volume of Voluntary Carbon Units to neutralise the CO2 that is emitted by our Signal Smart Monitor customers.
Current projects are based on a mix of reforestation and renewable energy projects. All projects are VCS (Verified Carbon Standard) approved.
As well as providing a carbon saving, voluntary carbon projects also have a positive impact in the communities in which they operate, for example job creation.
