FinTrU partners with ClimateCare to offset carbon emissions with projects that improve lives and fight climate change. As part of FinTrU’s approach to taking responsibility of our impact on the environment we have partnered with climate and sustainable development experts ClimateCare.
As well as taking actions to reduce our footprint and stress our commitment to sustainability, FinTrU has compensated for our business flights and building energy usage by contributing to a number of emission reduction projects around the globe.
Through these projects, FinTrU is compensating for its residual emissions, neutralising the carbon impact of our flights and office energy use, as well as supporting sustainable development and outcomes such as health, employment and education in local communities in Kenya, Ghana and India.
Our emissions will be offset through projects including the multiple award-winning LifeStraw Carbon for Water Project, which delivers safe water to more than 4 million people in Kenya, generating significant carbon reductions and enhancing the health of local communities by reducing exposure to waterborne disease.
“We are delighted to work with ClimateCare who are experts in this field, with fifteen years’ experience running some of the most innovative and largest carbon offset programmes in the world. Working with them has helped us understand how we can integrate action to tackle climate change and improve people’s lives.” Darragh McCarthy, FinTrU Founder & CEO.
ClimateCare’s Head of Partnerships explains “We are working with a range of organisations, from international corporates, governments and NGOs to deliver innovative projects at an unprecedented scale. Our Climate+Care model helps organisations take a smart approach to addressing their environmental impacts by offsetting their carbon emissions and supporting sustainable development”.
