For every £2,000 of revenue we receive from our clients in fees we will retire credits equivalent to 20 tonnes of carbon which equates to:
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 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 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.
