Please Vote: Nominations Open for Environmental Finance Survey

Environmental Finance Magazine has launched its Annual Survey of the Voluntary Carbon Market. These peer voted industry awards recognise those organisations offering outstanding services and we’d ask you to support ClimateCare by voting for us in the following categories:

  • Best Carbon Offset Retailer
  • Best Project Developer Overall
  • Best Project Developer Public Health
  • Best Trading Company
  • Best Advisory/Consultancy

Your vote will help us demonstrate that taking an integrated approach to tackling climate change, alleviating poverty and improving health through single projects makes sense – for business, people and the environment.

You can also nominate the Best Individual Project and Best Corporate Offset Programme. Here are some examples you could put forward, chosen for their scalability, innovation and impressive delivery of positive impacts for local communities as well as the environment:

 

Best Individual Project

ClimateCare’s work to kick-start a new market for clean burning ethanol cookers is saving lives and helping tackle climate change. Ethanol fuel is a clean burning renewable fuel that displaces wood and charcoal. ClimateCare’s pioneering Revolving Fund model is making new generation ethanol cookers affordable to communities that need them and has been hailed by industry experts, winning Environmental Finance’s Carbon Finance Transaction of the Year Award and nominated for a 2 degrees Champions Award.

 

Best Corporate Offset Programme

We’ve done some ground breaking work with our partners at Aviva who advocate our integrated approach to tackling climate change and improving lives. Working with ClimateCare, Aviva used the LBG framework to measure the social impact of their carbon offset programme – the first time that this has been done. Using this framework, Aviva is able to report that it has improved the lives of 395,000 people, whilst offsetting its unavoidable carbon emissions.

 

Your vote really will help us demonstrate that our approach – tackling climate change, alleviating poverty and improving health through single projects – makes sense for business, people and the environment. Voting Closes on the 8th of May.
