Ward Security now operating as a carbon neutral business

January 26, 2022


Ward has recently announced that it is now carbon neutral against its Scope one and two emissions, having invested in international offset projects in support of its commitment to a sustainable future.

Ward determined these direct and energy emissions to equate to 429 Tonnes of Carbon Equivalent (tCO2e), primarily from the impact of its vehicle fleet. The company believes in supporting and giving back to communities and the community-based projects it has selected to support have socio-economic, health and welfare benefits as well as environmental ones.

The three projects are: Improved cookstoves in Malawi – these cookstoves replace less efficient technologies and practices, resulting in biomass conservation and a reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.

Solar cookers in China – providing clean and reliable energy supply for daily cooking, whilst improving indoor hygiene and the living conditions and quality for rural residents

Wastewater and biogas in Thailand – preventing harm to the climate from methane and avoiding thousands of tonnes of fossil fuel being burnt each year, improving the local air and water quality.

Through offsetting via these projects, Ward are also supporting nine of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. Read more about the projects here: https://www.carbonfootprint.com/carbonoffsetprojects.html
