Faversham House has worked with Climate Impact to support independently verified carbon emissions avoidance/reduction projects around the world. The projects supported with avoid emissions 400 tonnes of CO2 equivalent, compared to our total Scope 1-3 emissions last year of 364 tonnes.
Faversham House staff were given details of a range of high quality projects and invited to vote for the projects they would like us to support. The winning projects were:

  • Water Filtration and Cookstoves, Guatemala
  • Mudbrick Rocket Stoves, Malawi
  • Global Nature conservation

As well as reducing carbon emissions, these projects supported a wide range of Sustainable Development Goals, including poverty alleviation, health and wellbeing, and gender equality.
Commenting on the initiative, Carl Myers, CTO, said: “We’ve been working hard to minimise our own emissions and are proud to have zero Scope 1 and 2 emissions. We will continue to work hard on reducing our Scope 3 emissions from our 2022 baseline of 364t CO2e, however, it’s not currently possible for us to get that down to zero. So currently supporting projects like these is the only way we can ensure that our company’s net impact on climate is a positive one. It’s also a great way to engage staff further with climate issues and to support some great projects around the world.”
