Activity around The Queen’s Awards for Enterprise continues throughout the year.

Carbon Offsetting with a difference

Climate and development expert ClimateCare has offset the carbon footprint of this year’s Queen’s Award magazine through the award winning LifeStraw Carbon for Water project, which cuts carbon AND provides safe water to 4.5 million people in Kenya.

This video explains how distributing gravity fed water filters to the entire Western Province of Kenya not only reduces exposure to waterborne diseases but cuts carbon emissions, helping to tackle climate change.Recent research from the Gold Standard Foundation shows that every tonne of carbon you offset through water projects like this, will deliver an amazing $117 of health impacts to the local community.

ClimateCare specialises in these types of Climate and Development project, that deliver benefits for people and the environment. This year it has been awarded a Queen’s Award for Enterprise for outstanding contribution to tackling climate change and alleviating poverty.
