For every £2,000 of revenue we receive from our clients in fees we will retire 20 carbon credits on their behalf which represents the reduction of 20 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (CO2e) which equates to:
pounds of coal burned
tree seedling grown for 10 years
homes energy use for one year
vehicles driven for 1 year
Smart phones charged
The emissions data has been obtained via the United States Environmental Protection Agency equivalents calculator. Should you require any additional information on how these amounts have been calculated please do contact us via our website
In 2010, ICECAP principals led the start up of a new energy efficiency business under the name 3 Rocks in Zambia involving the distribution and installation in rural areas of fuel efficient stoves financed by the sale (to the Swedish Government energy agency) of the carbon dioxide emissions reductions generated by lower wood usage. The business successfully distributed and installed over 40,000 stoves, benefitting in total approximately 200,000 people. In doing so, the amount of wood burned and carbon dioxide emitted was drastically reduced but also there are numerous other important benefits including;
The project was audited and is registered by the UN . Its design was to support some of the poorest individuals in the world whilst producing additional, genuine, and measurable reductions. Due to the unique nature of this project, the project was then selected by the Swedish Government who purchased the credits to help meet its international obligations.
*Based on retiring 20 tonnes of carbon credits for each employee which is the average emissions per capita of the highest EU state. We believe this is a conservative and comprehensive assessment of ICECAPs emissions and will result in ICECAP being able to proudly state that it is carbon neutral for 2020 and thereafter.
