SCC in partnership with co2balance
Since 2010, we have worked with carbon offset specialists co2balance to calculate and offset emissions created from the operation of our Data Centres and recycling operations via the support of projects in Africa.
Our carbon offset total amounts to 15,916 tonnes.
Carbon offset projects
We continue to support the Energy Efficient Stoves Project, building energy saving cooking stoves for villages in Kenya. These brick stoves reduce the need for firewood by 50%, preventing carbon from being emitted.
We also support co2balance’s Borehole Project. There are an estimated 50,000 defective water supply installations in Africa.
The Borehole Project involved the rehabilitation of boreholes in Northern Uganda to provide a safe, clean source of water.
